Ungstrup (29211) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2010
Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of hops and roasted malt, lending it a slight acidity. The flavor is sweet with and acidic edge from the roasted malt, which combines with notes of hops and horseblanket and leads into a dry and slightly tart finish.

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2009
I didn’t care for this as much as the "its Fity" and the other ratings appear to bear out this reaction. You get some nice qualities but a blend that makes it something different from what you’re expecting. On tap at Drakes, RBSG2009.

Draught at the brewery during the RBSG09 tasting. Black with a tan head. Cherry, alcohol and somewhat funky aroma. Chocolate, wood, and light funky tartness in the flavor. An odd beer that i wasn’t really sure what to make of, though I kinda liked it.
