3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 2006. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a big fizzy (noisy) light brown head that very fast becomes just bubbles. Aroma: woooooooooooo, that just bit me! Burned the few hairs I had in my nose. Alcohol big time, bit sour, sweet caramel, grass and raisins. The flavour: VERY sweet, too sweet....raisins, caramel, malt, more sweetness, alcohol, even more sweetness, fruity and malty and very siruppy sweet. The alcohol is noticeable but 12%...naaa get outta here..... well, this is a good nighty brew.

Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Hazy amber, fair sized head. Caramelly malt aroma. Sweet with some grassy hops trying to cover a rounded voluptous body with caramel, fruit, toffee. Vinous and warming. Intense salty finish. A good winter warmer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Floral, herbal and raisin aroma as to be expected from a strong barley wine. Red/brown color, large off-white head, good lace. Very sweet, raisin, bitter, fruity, orange, light floral, light herbal. Quite complex actually. Full, syrupy and warming. Again a underrated Danish beer because it’s well brewed, according to the style, complex yet flavorful.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Fluffy light brown head. Aroma and flavour is all about alcohol. Aroma has some flowery notes and flavour some light caramel notes. Given the high alcohol the body is quite light. All thats left in the end is alcohol. Way to unbalanced and onedimensional.

draught at Chr. firtal, Odense: Dark brown amber with a fine , unfortunaly, fading white head. Heavy nose with malts, caramel, sugar (sweet) & dark fruits. Too little Hoppyness compared to the powerfull alcoholic aftertaste. Not very well balanced. 12% abv is clearly showing/appearing and felt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful amber with a big off-white/beige/yellowish head. Sweetish aroma; seems a bit candy-like in the vicinity of the glass, but has lots of rye when you stick your nose in it. Notes of fruit and grainy alcohol as well. Flavour is sweetish. Grainy and fruity. Seems very heavy… actually a bit too much. Not that I don’t like ‘big beers’ but it doesn’t work very well in this one. It’s a bit like a cheap ‘European strong lager’. Notes of plums as it warms. Grainy and fruity finish with notes of apple. 13-12-06.
