Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of KimJohansen. Clear, dark amber golden with a tall and lively beige head. Lightly tart aroma with some dried and overripe fruit. Quite full-bodied rich with sweet roasted malts and again dried and overripe fruit accents - almost sherry like. Subdued bitterness with a warming alcoholic finish. I simply don’t understand this beers low score. 090209

Ungstrup (34696) - 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.

Bottled, alc. 8 % (BB 11/09)
Courtesy of bierkoning, ty Edo!
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 (25472) - 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.
