Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2002
A pitch black beer with a beutiful head. It doesn’t have much aroma but hints of smoked malt. The flavor is that of smoked malt with some hop bitterness. All in all a very drinkable beer among the more fullbodied beers.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) The quintessence of Irish beer - no less. Pitch black with a pretty brownish head, albeit no nitrogen in this bottled version. Very dry, almost ashy with a lasting bitterness all the way through. The mother of dry stouts....Mine was 5% ABV. 101200

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2006
33cl bottle. Spurred on by SilkTork’s thread on this beer, I got around to actually rating it. Black colour with brown on the edges, lasting beige head. Burnt malt aromas, some toffee too. Some dark fruit. Bit tinny on the carbonation. Finish has choc, coffee, but just a tad thin. Nice though
