Ungstrup (34653) - 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.

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!

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2010 Bottle. An attractive pour: Dark brown, caramel highlights, with a brown head. Very faint aroma of roasted malt. Flavor is thin, some light coffee. Body is light to medium, fizzy. Very little action in the finish, almost no aftertaste. Just lackluster on pretty much all fronts.
