yespr (44131) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours amber, clear, with a crispy and somewhat lasting light orange head. Roasted caramel malt aroma. Soft sweet malty flavour with a mellow bitterness in the finish. Clear roasted note. Somewhat more sweet than the HP Bock but otherwise quite reminiscent of that. Nice.

Ungstrup (36928) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
Bottled. Sampled 3 years old. A deep red beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is very sweet and quite complex with notes of grain, berries, alcohol, wood, and some spices. The flavor is very sweet with notes of malt, berries, grain, brown sugar, and licorice, leading to a dry slightly bitter finish with notes of wood. The body is sirupy.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Bottled (thanks Anna!). Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is hops, sweet malts, alcohol and some burnt sugary notes. Flaour is rather similar with alcohol pushing through a bit too much.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear amber with a small, beige head. Sweetish, malty caramelish aroma. Quite full-bodied but considering the 8.4% ABV its almost thin! Extremely malty with a marked sweetness and distinct notes of caramel. Practically no bitterness. My guess is, that this is A-Z Ale speeded up with heaps of extra caramel malt and perhaps even malt aroma. Not a great brew. 081105

omhper (24786) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2008
Bottled. Mahogany colour, minimal head. Fruity nose. Sweet and medium bodied. Sweaty and un-firm, vague notes of coffee and over-ripe plums. Syrupy and strange, but with some odd rustic charm.

Koelschtrinker (19743) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Malzig-herber, wenig klebriger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier ser, der Ton wird aber soweit zurckgehalten, dass er nicht unangenehm erscheint. Nur bedingt wrzig, das dunkle Malz, das im hintergrund stark erkennbar ist, hlt sich sprbar zurck, kommt aber auch im Abgang nicht hervor und vertut seine Chance, das Bier in eine wrzigere Richtung zu ziehen. Daher bleibt es bei einem eher sffigen Barley Wine mit malzigen Wurzeln, die aber nicht vollkommen genutzt werden. 7/9/9/8/6/8

saxo (18008) - Hjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2006
Bottle. Nice big tan head with medium duration. Color is amber. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is caramel and malt.

yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2007 Bottled. Almost clear, dark reddish brown with a small off-white head. Caramel-sweet, malty aroma with yellow apples and some sourness. Sweetness and caramel dominates the flavor, with very little hoppiness, and some apple-notes. Too mild for a barely wine I think. Sticky on the palate, and a bit too thin-bodied. Unusual, as usual for Refsvindinge. Old rating 060115: 4-4-5-2-11-2.6. (070119)
