Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 [At GABF 2004] A hazy brown beer with a small disappearing off-white head. The aroma contains notes of honey and rosehips - not suiting for the style - rather a mead - but still OK. The flavor is slightly roasted, which gives it a dry end, but the body is thin. Just not enough of the good stuff.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Pours hazy, opaque black with a tall, rough shaving foam style head leaving laces. Lightly tart aroma. Thin and watery, lightly roasted malt and a huge carbonation with big bubbles. Subdued bitterness. I reckon there’s an infection hiding in here somewhere. 070907

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
Draught at St. Augustine, Vancouver
Black color; creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, some yeast. The mouthfeel is quite smooth, with strong flavor of heavily roasted malts, but also a delicate fruity vein to provide some balance and complexity; the bitterness is quite strong, suspected mostly from the roasted malt; the late final gets a bit ashy.
Pleasant.
