Ungstrup (29493) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
[Bottle conditioned] A black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is sour - weird for a stout, more like a Flemmish sour ale. The flavor is also sour like Flemmish sour ale but with notes of chocolate and caramel.

harrisoni (13894) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2007
Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2007. Had this in error as the guy behind the counter poured me the wrong beer, but even so this had plenty of malt to keep it going. Very roasted malts, bit powdery in mouth, intense flavours, some dark fruit. Powdery, dry finish.
