Ungstrup (33430) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2005
[Vintage 2003 - sampled December 2005] A deep red beer with lots of sediment floating around and with a nice thick light brown head. The aroma is sweet spicy and berry - I pick out cowberries and black currant as well as some wood and yeast, and hints of alcohol. The flavor is sweet but well balanced with a fruity acidity like red currants - a lovely mixture. The flavor also contains notes of wood and yeast, and the alcohol cannot be tasted, but hides in the background and gives You the warmth on a cold winters night.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2005
a sim rate: (bottle from Bier Circus, Croydon) One of the best aromas I’ve smelt in a long time... mostly liquorice. Thick palate. Red wine and sweet honey taste. Beautiful hazel-red colour. Plum in the aftertaste. I always keep the very last bit as a honey shot right at the end. I poured it in and it looks like solid mud!! It’s almost not even liquid. Sediment would be a completely different rate on its own. Pure honey. Absolutely glorious!

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Dark reddish beer, huge head. Somewhat fruity, notes of juniper berries. Finish is syrupy and yeasty. A bit too sticky and yeasty for my taste.

Ernest (7164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2005
2002 vintage, Belgium, May 2005. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is murky medium brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of cherry and sherry. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Don’t recall where this was had, perhaps in Oostende. Would’ve probably prefered a fresher bottle.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) The type of beer that virtually "explodes" when the cap comes off. The foam floods out of the bottle and it just keeps on going. By the time, I locate a glass, only half of the original content is left. Aestetically, this scrapes the barrel: muddy grey-brown - pretty much the colour of Chinese river water. When it comes to the flavor it’s a bit like chocolate (milk), actually quite soft and malty with some bitterness. And a lot of sediment - like the bottom of the aforementioned Chinese river. At least a tea spoon full of it. 100104
