yespr (36043) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is butterish and caramelish. Solid butterish, slight metallic and dark breadish flavoured. Vague cardboardish flat malt note. Ends dry and light bitter mixed with a roasted breadish malt note.

Ungstrup (30738) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2006
A deep red beer with a dense brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as hints of butter. The flavor has strong notes of butter, but nicer notes of caramel, and hints of smoke, leading to a dry hoppy end. Take away the butter and it’d be good.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a beautiful, dark amber with a creamy, white head. Rather unusual sweetish caramel nose with a sheryish note. Medium body with roasted accents and some caramel. Soft finish with only discreet hops. Lovely. 190206

MiP (14481) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2010 Apparently needs to be fresh.:

Bottle, 5.2%. Very buttery aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is also quite buttery, seems a bit more malty and caramelly. Not so good, though. 2 3 3 3 3

Bottle, 5.2% bought at the brewery. Vinous, roasted aroma. Beautiful clear dark chestnut colour. Very small tan head. Good roasted flavour. Mildly nutty. Very well-balanced. 7 3 7 3 17

Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2009
Dark golden brown. Breadcrusty chocolate nose. Very complex toasty dark malts. The toasty palate is quite dry, but not quite as unique as the aroma suggests. Still, this is a quality dark lager.

Koelschtrinker (13105) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Säuerlich-malziger, sehr weicher Antrunk. Die Säuerlichkeit wirkt zur Beginn noch ungewohnt, mit der Zeit gewöhnt man sich jedoch daran und merkt, dass sie zum Bier passt. Das Malz ist hier zwar die Hauptnote, sie wird aber immer wieder durch die Säuerlichkeit beeinflusst. Im Verlauf wird das Bier deutlich milder, zum Ende das erste Mal bitter. Das Malz ist dabei trocken und weist Kaffeenuancen auf. Im Nachgeschmack ist das Bier stärker malzfixiert. 9/9/9/9/9/9
