Benzai (14298) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2013
33cl bottle @ home. Dark amber brown color, small beige head. Smell malts, some sweetness, slightly leaves. Taste malts, slightly sugar, slightly yeast, some caramel, lightly sweet-bitter and a touch of grape-peel. Nice body, medium carbonation. Way better than expected.

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 (34715) - 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.

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.
