Ungstrup (34226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2004
An unclear brown beer with a small disappearing orange head. The aroma is of licorice, pine, and medicin - quite weird. The flavor is dominated by pine but also contains a lot of hops, which gives it a lovely bitter end. The mouthfeel is soft.

oh6gdx (25192) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 22, 2010
Bottled (Thanks Kalevi). Very deep brown, close to black, colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is dark dry fruits, some raisins, mild wooden notes as well as some spices and ashes. Flavour is sweet fruits along some burnt sugar, spices, ashes and mild alcohol as well. Still quite easy to drink 11 % beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of pepsican. Hazy reddish brown with a rough, off-white head. Fat, sweetish and spicy aroma. Very full-bodied, sticky, sweet and fat with spicy accents. Rather bitter finish. Excentric indeed, but not really great. 201008

omhper (23317) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2004
Bottled, thanks hopsrus! Cloudy nut brown. Hoppy earhty green menthe aroma. Very malty and somewhat vinous. Salty and spicy, confusing and complex with a Fisherman's Friend finish. This is what Bell's do best: Ridiculously full bodied experimental beer with bizarre flavours.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Hazy deep amber beer, good pale tan head, short lived. Smooth palate. Sweetish malts, caramel and toffee. Sweet cinnamon. Mild tangy fruits. Large pinch of spice. Light semi dry finish. Comes together well.

Travlr (21170) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Draft at the source, listed as 12%. Murky black, scant edge head. Aroma of salty chocolate, squid ink. Taste has licorice, sweet potatos and various tuberous vegetables. Unusual to say the least.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20k tasting - London. Cheers to Ken himself for this! Vintage 2008. Pours rich brown with a light, tan cream head. The nose has light damp carpet, hints of cinnamon, mint and wood. Heavy sweet flavor with dark sugars, more cinnamon, toffee. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with strong sugary syrup character, some vague fruits, gooey toffee. Heavy stuff. Not bad.
