AshtonMcCobb (4811) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Can thanks to Victor, from Iceland! Thank you sir! Appearance - close to opaque black but with some red chinks around the bottom of the glass. A decent head that ends up thin. Nose - toffee to molasses, light liquorice. Taste - more sweet toffee. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a finish that is a bit sweet. Overall - a bit too sweet.

330ml bottle - shared by Marduk, thanks!
Sickly sweet malty aroma, some raisins, and caramel, even some cakey spiciness. Taste likewise, gets a bit of alcohol later. Finish sugary and sweet too. Do not recognise this as a stout, it’s a sweet spicy nonsense.

Ungstrup (32872) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2005
A very dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty again with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of straw, and a thin body.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful dark mahogany with a warm, reddish glow. Nice, creamy beige coloured head. Sweet, malty nose. Quite sweet with distinct notes of roasted malt. Pretty much no bitterness. Appears like a malt drink with added alcohol. 271105

oh6gdx (24330) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2012

martjoobolut (2506) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle (from UJH). Pours dark brown with beige head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, malty, grainy, spicy. Flavor is sweet and slightly bitter, malt, some grainy notes, spices, toffee. some licorice. Body is watery. Carbonation is on higher side. Overall: passable as sweet-spicy-malty-watery-lagerish drink, but has nothing to do with sweet stout (current style in rb). Ohh and -1 to overall for using food coloring.
