Ungstrup (30267) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with huge fluffy collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, fruit, bread, and some unexplicable spices. The flavor is very sweet malty with notes of prunes, dusty hops, bread, alcohol, brown sugar, and caramel, leading to a dry spicy, caramel, and bready finish. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

An dark amber colored beer, with a off-white head. The aroma of some spices, vanilla and alcohol. The taste of caramel, some malts, some fruits. It;s not a fine combination of flavors.

Light amber color, small creamy head. Slightly hoppy but strongly buttery, hoppy aroma - like in Czech pils! Bitterish with diacetyl, grass, alcohol, hops, some fruity notes. This is like crossover of malt liquer and Belgian tripel - yes, it is as weird as it sounds.

oh6gdx (22403) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2008
Bottled (8%). Amber colour with small slightly off-white head, which leaves nice lace. Aroma is a lot of diacetyl (toffee), alcohol and some mild hints of vanillalike notes. I came to think of Urquell because of the aroma. Flavour is bigtime diacetyl, some mild fruits, alcohol and caramel. The diacetyl is so strong, it’s hard to rate the rest of it. Alcohol burns nicely in the aftertaste.

MiP (14442) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle, 9%. Very vinous and spicy aroma a little alcoholic, actually quite christmassy. Hazy brown colour. Small head. Alcoholic flavour, spicy rum, sugar cane. I quite enjoyed this on a cold day.

yespr (34875) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2008
33 cL bottle, thanks to MiP. Pours slight hazy light brown/orange with a lacing white head. Alcohol heavy and barley aroma, light spice note. Flavour is sweet caramel cane sugarish with a distinct alcohol note, almost rum-like without too much thick alcohol mouthfeel. Ends with a lingering light overripe fruit note.
