Ungstrup (29059) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2010
Bottled. A black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma is strong with notes alcohol, over ripe fruits, roasted malt, and wood. The over is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits and roasted malt as well as medium notes of alcohol, burnt bread, and light notes of wood, leading to a very dry roasted finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2010
Bottle. It’s pitch black with a nougat-brown, huge and creamy head. Sadly there is a strong note of sewer and barnyard alongside with roasted malt, dark fruits and licorice in the aroma. The mouthfeel is oily and nice. The flavour has a light sweetness and the same annoying notes of sewer and barnyard, but also roasted malt, yeast, light dark fruits and licorice. I’m pretty sure this could have been really nice...

thewolf (11106) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Pour opaque black with a small, creamy, beige head. Elegant, soft aroma with English liqourice, roasted malts, chocolate and port. Low carbonation, super lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is initially harsh and tobacco-like, then coffee, then roasted malts, then sweet with figs and plums, then port, then vinious, then roasted again, then vanilla. This is really lovely, the aftertaste sticks with me forever.
