Cask@GBBF2011. Very deep copper colour with a small beige head. Aroma is nutty, wooden mildly liquorice with some slight spicy notes as well. Flavour is roasted malts, some toffee and mild fruity notes. Rather roasty and ashy finish. Alternative bitter...

BLack, tan head. Milky roast aroma. Quite watery palate. Milky retronasals. Improves as it warms - it fills out. However, still a quite dull roasty beer. Despite the dullness, it’s pretty tasty, and hard to flaw. Nicely roasty finish tops things off. I approve.

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 19/11/09. An odd one this, as the ratings differ so greatly in their descriptions. The beer I tried was near black with a slight, off-white head. It had a roasty aroma, with some bitter chocolate and raisins. The flavour had a touch of sweetness upfront, before some heavy roastiness and a dry finish. Drinkable.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, and spices - especially cinnamon. The flavor is acidic with light notes of malt and citrus, leading to a lightly tart finish. Fine aroma, but not flavor. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle. It pours a dark amber to reddish brown body, clear, with a dense, beige head on top. Roasted malt, bread and some fruit in the aroma. Slightly sourish in the mouth, with roasted malt, caramel, some bread and a fruity touch. Dry and thin. Roasted finish with a little fruityness. Slightly sour, maybe on it’s way to go really bad, but most of all it’s boring. Could use more of everything. (080823)
