tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Sweet, rose water, chocolate, cakelike aroma. Opaque black body with decent off white head that recedes to cover. Very sweet, floral, cakelike flavour with strong roasty bitterness emerging towards the long dry finish. Sweet floral tones last in the aftertaste. Medium-full body with soft, lively effervescence. Bottle sampled at RBESG 2005.

omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Near black. Rose aroma. Sweet and roasty, salty and intense with notes of milk chocolate. Very soft mouthfeel. Like a flower garden a summer morning.... Complea and unusual, incredibly refined compared to most other Belgian stouts.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005
A black beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also fruits and alcohol are present. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit. The mouthfeel is quite carbonated. I better get back to this one, since my notes are very limited for such a complex beer.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle. Black with small head. Chocolate, sweet liqourice, pipe tobacco, little roasted, notes of flowers, nicely balanced, low carbonation, full bodied, oily mf, not what I expected but the complexity won me over. Thanks Chris_O

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Very dark brown, but not completely opaque. Small, light brown head. Nose of roasted malts. Extremely full-bodied with notes of bitter, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Marked alcohol and sweetness. Light ashy notes and only a short, dry bitterness which never really balances the sweetness. But this doesn’t appear unbalanced, but very lovely. 120805

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2005
(On bottle at RBESG 2005)Started out real bad and finished really good. Has a very medical nose, like a used bandage, yukk! It´s unfiltered dak brown, almost black. Flavour was great; burnt figs, coco and liqourice, very complex and varied. Smooth finish.like liqouricefoam with tobacco notes.
