33 cL bottle, comes as Charles Quint / Keizer Karel. Pours golden and clear amber with a lacing off-white head. Light yeasty and malty aroma. Flavour is almost wineous malty with a nice overripe fruit note. Ends with a mild fruity flavoured malt base.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2006
An amber beer with a light brown head. The aroma has strong notes of cowberres, and some spicy roots which I can’t put names to, though some of it is licorice root. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of cowberries, spicy roots, as well as light notes of honey. The alcohol warms the tongue. I have no idea where this came from, but Sofie (Frk_Aabenhuus) was so nice as to share it with me.

A dark amber beer with a small head. The aroma is very lightly sweet and fruity. The flavor is of a good maltblend, with roasted, sweet, and fruity notes - a very complex flavor.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) My version was only 7% ABV. Dark brown with a reddish hue, decent head. Very malty and full-bodied, with some roasted, sweetish notes - although the sugar never gets cloying. Reminds me of an Abbey Dubbel. 280597

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2006
Bottled (as Charles Quint Keizer Karel). Dark brown colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, malts and spices. Flavour is much more boring, though it contains the same things. Mouthdrying. Some alcohol also noteable, especially after the beer warms up a bit.

23rd February 2008. Smooth brown beer. Very creamy with a distinct chocolate milkshake feel. Smooth, sumptuous, soft, superb!
