Ungstrup (29482) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2010
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a red shine under a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of alcohol and sweet malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of a boring malt blend and caramel as well as lighter notes of berries, leading to a dry finish where a note of vegetables appears.

oh6gdx (20619) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2010
Bottled (from bierkompass.de). Quite much pitch black colour with small bubbly brown head. Aroma is liquorice, some yeast, mild smoked wet wood, some barrelnotes as well as some grapes. Flavour is mildly toasted notes, some liquorice, alcohol and some wooden barrel. Very interesting tobaccoish smoked wet wooden aftertaste.

madmitch76 (15309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2012 5th March 2010.
Pre ZBF. Opaque black beer - brown edges. No head. Dry palate with zero carbonation. Dry dark malt with some bitter chocolate. Fresh spicy apple in the finish and aftertaste. Not bad but something is missing. Palate is too dry. Original rating 3.3.

27th January 2012
Bottle shared with the Kernel crew. Very hazy amber beer, little white head. Light palate, crisp and semi dry. A little caramel malt and minerals both of which are subservient to the dry spicy calvados. Smie dry finish. Ageing seems to have evened this one out.

The color is very dark, almost black; the bottle starts gushing slowly, but in the glass there is only a small-sized head, a thin cfreamy layer of which is persistent. Mild aroma, some roasted malts, light smoke, and light vinous character. Good body strength; strong chocolate flavor, and roasted malts, dry, with some Belgian character; there is an impression of ashes and a quite strong liquorice presence; I can’t really feel the Calvados. The alcohol content is well managed, and the bitterness level is correct.
Solid brew, but unimpressive, unexciting.
