Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black with a lazing brown head. The aroma has strong notes of chocolate, alcohol, and over ripe fruits, as well as lemon. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of dark chocolate, alcohol, over ripe fruits, and some wood, leading to a dry bitter and alcoholic finish. Nice one. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of KimJohansen. Clear dark brown with a tint of red and a small beige head. Distinct whiskey aroma that overpowers pretty much anything else. Solid body, hard roasted malts and sweet accents of licorice allsorts, but again everything is overpowered by the distinct Bourbon notes. Some hard roasted malts in the finish, but not really any hard roasted malts. Not much Porter left but I really dig the heavy Bourbon. 231109

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2009
Dark brown. Light head. Hazy. Vanilla and some chocolate and light fruit notes on the aroma. Palate is abundant vanilla, with a nice barrel character. Extra vanilla with hints of dates, maybe a little bit of booze. Suffers from being one-dimensional.
