Ungstrup (29606) - 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.

omhper (19791) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2003
Bottled. This beer has quite a reputution as it is mentioned by Alan Marshall in his famous beer-records.faq dating back to 1995 as the darkest beer he knew at 450 EBC. It pours very black with a brownish head, but I think nowadays there are darker beers. It is sweet and creamy and rather light bodied. The mouthfeel as well rounded and it is lightly roasty and somewhat chocoaltey. The finish is velvetty with low bitterness. A good crossing between milk chocolate and stout.

Milk stout with caramel added. Opaque very dark brown beer. Surprisingly flavoursome - light lactose sweetness over some unsubtle caramel malt. Just a trace of roasty malt flavour. Semi dry finish with more lactose sweetness. Okay - a bit clunky!

harrisoni (14009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle at GBBF 2006. Black with thin dark beige head. Odd aroma with some sourness, some milkyness, some sweetness, odd dark malts. Some choc. Odd, but quite nice.

Bottle, thx to larsga. It’s a dark, dark brown beer with a nice dark beige head. Sweetish, caramel notes with some roasted malts. Sweet, caramel flavor, roasted, almost sugary, with some roasted bitterness. Medium body. Sweet in the finish. A quite tasteful beer, but far too sweet. (090605)
