Ungstrup (29671) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2006
An unclear brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with main notes of chocolate, but also hints of wood. The flavor is sweet malty with lots of chocolate, but also some wood, and a slight acidity, leading to a dry finish.
Earlier Rating: 8/14/2005 Total Score: 3.3
A hazy brown beer though with a reddish hue, and with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by caramel. The flavor is sweet with chocolate being most dominant, but also some notes of caramel.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Apparently a new and different recipe. Opaque, very dark brown with a deliciously, creamy, cappuchinoish head. Roasted and lightly burned, malty character. Good, full body with plenty of roasted malt and some sweetness. Vague burned accents that don’t leave the usual ashy bitterness. Quite neato. Thanks to Bierkönig for sharing. 160206

(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown, but not opaque as such. Small, creamy, beige head. Aroma of burned caramel. Flavour of roasted malt, but smooth and mellow - not sharp and burned. Very limited bitterness. Pleasant. 120804

omhper (19805) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Near black. Sweet and roasty. Salty and tarry with notes of licorice and coffee. Surprisingly light bodied with clean mouthfeel and striking bitterness.

Opaque black beer. Short lived chocolate coloured head. Semi dry palate. Light and mildy fruity porter. Chocolate undertone. A little carbonated bite at the end. Standard but decent.

bottle at home .... bloody helll this opened with a BANG and the metal cap went shooting off like a champaign cork ... deep brown black ... huge brown head ... WAY WAY to fizzy ... roast chocolate malt and little woody sourness nose... again light sourness in front ... soft roast ... little chocolate ... such a shame as this could be a lot better...

Bottle. Batch 68. Huge creamy head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich with licorice, roast malt and coffee. Tried the batch 107 right after and that was way more mild and light in all respects. Would probably only give this one 3.6 or so.
