faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 19, 2011
Botella en casa. Pitch balck colour, small light brown head. Sweet roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit vinious aroma, quite pleasant.Good sticky mouthfeel. Flavour is on the sweet side with quite a roasted maltiness, chocolate, dark fruits, wood and good vinious notes indeed. Needs more volume but still a great brew.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2011
Bottle (#60)... Dark brown ale with rusty highlights around the edges and no head. The aroma provides lots of fudge and a splash of red wine. Medium-bodied with only a trace of carbonation. Flavor-wise, this beer fails me. Rancid bitterness is sharp and biting and overshadows all the delicious fudge, mocha and gentle, vinous acidity that is offered up. Lengthy, metallic, alcoholic finish. As the beer warms, the flavor starts to grow on me, but it’s too little too late. My first sip was just awful. Why all the overbearing, unnecessary EBUs?

Thanks to bierkoning for that rare beer. Bottle looks really good. Nr. 473/600. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. A bit oily. Starts very malty-smoky, dry chocolate notes. Finish drier, some strong coffee notes, well balanced. Very interesting!

Ungstrup (33993) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, wood, and tannins, leading to a dry tannic, roasted, and woody finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle 18 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Bottle # 260. Pours pitch black with hardly any head. Nose has some hard roast and a little wood. Solid body, completely flat, hard roast indeed, some vanilla and dark dried fruits. Very malt astringent. The barrell doesn’t really come through in this much. 230311
