COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: De tider er for længst ovre, hvor skøger, tatere og fusentaster befolkede byens gader, og hvor en ærlig mand ikke regnede det for noget at give gadedrengene eller fruentimmeret et ordentligt dragt prygl. Desværre er der ikke udsigt til at de tider kommer igen, men derfor behøver du ikke gå glip af at smage, hvordan øllet kunne have været dengang. Derfor har jeg her begået en stærk porter, hvor der helt i datidens ånd er snydt på alle måder for at forstærke både farve, smagsindtryk og rus - med bl.a. udtræk af fennikelfrø og brændt sukker (essentia bina). Selvfølgelig uden nymodens pjat som kulsyre og udløbsdato.

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with no head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, brown sugar, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet though with an acidic edge from the hard roasted malt with notes of soy sauce, wood, and alcohol, as well as light notes of oxidation, leading to a dry woody finish. A bit too much for my liking.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle 25 cl. Pours completely pitch black with no head - pure motor oil. Distinctly burned aroma of black malts and massive alcohol. Quite full-bodied, completely flat, wood and sherry notes, loads of burned malts with a heavily alcoholic finish. Pretty damned extreme! 160509

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2009
Bottled@The Bishop’s Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm. Quite much pitch black colour, no head. Aroma is wood, liquorice, alcohol, burnt sugar and some spices. Also dark chocolate and some espresso coffee. Flavour is wood, sweet liquorices, ashes, burnt wet wood and some slight notes of dark fruits. Big liquorice, herbs and ashes in the finish. Very wellbalanced and hides the alcohol really well.

omhper (19220) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy dark brown, minimal head. Meaty soy sauce aroma. Takes full bodied to the extreme. Very sweet withlots of caramel. Thick with lots of power and even more molasses. Syrupy finish. Too thick and raw. Needs a century or so to mature.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2009
Bottle at Københavnske Øldage 2009
Black color, oily. Very nice American style aroma: roasted malt, hops, glue, phenol. Very strong body, a bit oily, roasted malt flavor, liquorice, chocolate; quite strong alcohol feeling, light sourness. The final, very bitter, is maybe a bit harsh. Too much.
