Wow a new stout and my first beer from Malta who knew it was their best brew too! O.k. that is about where the excitement ends. 12oz bottle pours dark brown with a big creamy tan head. Aroma well is almost non existant. There may be a touch of roasted malt but not much. Flavor is malty with roasted notes and maybe a bit of chocolate. Palate is pretty well carbonated and has a soft mouthfeel. Well if this is Malta’s best I’m pretty glad I don’t live there!

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
Bottled. An opaque brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of over ripe fruit and prunes, while the flavor is sweet malty with ntoes of over ripe fruits, dusty hops, and a bit of chocolate, leading to a dry end. But the body is thin.

This black liquid had some garnet highlights after I poured it form the bottle. The quickly dissapating head had a slight dark orange tint and clung to the glass. The aroma was roasted with chocolate and some burnt peanuts. The taste has some light notes of chocolate and nasty spoiling milk. There is a strange cellar and moss dankness that is not pleasurable. Lacto beers are not my thing.

Bottle says "Lacto Stout with Caramel Color added." Hmmm. Pours opaque blackish brown with a fading but lacy tan head. The aroma is pretty faint, but there is some chocolate and horse blanket. Medium body and light carbonation. Lightly sweet taste, not much bigger than the aroma, with some roasty malt and chocolate. Just a hint of coffee in the finish.
