Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2012
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, and alcohol, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear deep golden with a small white head. Dry chili notes on a bed of syrupy fruit. Rich body, thick and rich fruits, again syrupy with a rough hop profile and then again quite some chili. Boozy finish. No pleasure in this one for me. I note that others taste coffee where I taste chili - actually I often feel a similarity between the too. But I do feel a slight bite here. 290212

oh6gdx (20392) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Bottled@Cosmic Comic Cafe, Turku. Deep amber colour, small white head. Aroma is coffee, hops, earth and some mild spices and alcohol. Flavour is caramel, coffee, toffee, alcohol, mild spicyness as well as some quite strong raisins and fruity (and also ripe fruity) notes. Slightly strong on the alcohol, otherwise a rather pleasant beer.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2012
Bottled. Clear amber, no head. Aroma of coffee and chili. Very sweet with full body and viscous mouthfeel. Lots of syrup as well as honey, ash and chili. Low bitterness. A big beer with unusual flavours, way too much sugar and not a whole lot of balance or finesse.

Clear deep gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate, quite light. Rich marmalade hops that are nicely balanced with coffee and a touch of vanilla. Finishes smooth with minor aniseed alcohol. Marmalade hop aftertaste. Doesn’t work at all as a Stout - nice try. Does work well in it’s own right - came over as an Imperial Coffee Golden to me! Hides the alcohol quite well and very drinkable.
