Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2014
Bottled. A red beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of coffee, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of mocca, caramel, and malt, leading to a dry finish.

Bottle at KØ14. Sweet coffee and vanilla syrup aroma. Clear dark chestnut colour. Small off-white head. The flavour is sweetish with a good coffee note. Hint of vanilla in the finish, but not as much as feared.

guzgorog (270) - FRANCE - MAY 20, 2014
Couleur marron foncé avec des reflets rouge. Col de mousse minimal disparaissant presque instantannement. Complétement plate. Nez de mocaccino (chocolat, café avec un petit côté lacté). Goût surtout sur le chocolat amère, texture crémeuse, agréable à la première gorgée, mais très rapidement très écoueurant. Arrière bouche de reviens y pas : métallique et industriel. A oublier ...

Garrold (1366) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle that’s been sat for a while in the cellar. Very dark, clear, chestnut brown. Minimal, tan head. Smells like a cheap Easter egg. Tastes pretty much the same. That’ll be the added glucose syrup, then... I don’t get it. I don’t get it with food and I don’t get it with drink. Stop adding stuff that isn’t necessary, just to appeal to people who don’t care what they consume anyway... I can’t imagine Batemans are the only ones, mind. It’s just that M&S do a good job listing ingredients.

Dzhigga (121) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottled. Dark cola-like color with small fast-disappearing head. Intense aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste is bitter-sweet chokolate. Very interesting beer. Maybe not enough hops to be ideal.
