Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2005
A chestnut colored beer with a huge bubbly brown head. The aroma is sweet and very spicy with quite a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor is also sweet malty with a lot of caramel as well as lots of spices, again cinnamon and nutmeg, leading to a smooth slightly flowery end.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle (shared with Finwe). Deep amber small off-white head. Aroma is wood, some spices, mild honey and some slight yeastyness. Flavour is quite much the same. Alcohol and some grains also showing in the flavour, as well as some sweetness that punches you hard.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Bottle. Nice, dark chestnut colour. No head. Thin flavour with a little cinnamon. Vodka aftertaste.

Bottle, 7.3%. 2.5 years past BB date. Not much change from my earlier rating. A little rough and unpolished, but drinkable.
