Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a clear dark orangey brown with a beige head. Nose has caramel, iodine and distinct peat - with a whiff of butter. Medium body, dry caramel notes and again loads of peat, tar and iodine. Ends dry and ashy with a subdued bitterness. Not the worst peaty beer. 260911

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2011
Bottled. A nut-brown beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of peated whiskey, malt, and wood. The flavor is sweet with peated whiskey, wood, caramel, and malt, leading to a dry whiskey finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, Switzerland
Dark brown color; medium sized creamy head. The aroma from the peaty whisky is moderate, delicate, not overwhelming. The underlying Brown Ale has a quite ordinary caramel flavor that edges on the dry and dusty side; but it’s well complemented by a moderate smoked whisky flavor; there is also some chocolate and very light roasted malts.
The final is correctly bitter, with light roasted nuts and light whisky.
Pleasant, it gives a better statement than the Special Reserve 43, but it’s less seducing than the Special Reserve 21, also because of the different original cask used.

Bov (9335) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2011
from Au Grain d’Orge, Neuchâtel - slightly hazy brown colour with a little persistent beige foam; gently smoky with notes of caramel, sherry and wood; medium-bodied and with a low carbonation, some sweetness and a moderate bitterness; finishes a bit short and dry with notes of smoke and caramel - subtle and very well-made
