Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2011
Bottled - first I missed it because of the ash cloud over Europe, but then I found it in London. A brown beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of alcohol as well as sweet and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of soy sauce, malt, roasted malt, hops, and alcohol, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2010
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Ruby/black, small but persistant head. Minty asphalt and grapefruit assaults my nostrils with pear, coffee and licorice following shortly thereafter. Sweet and massively full bodied with compact, black hole-style mouthfeel. Lots and lots of hops backed by licorice and truckloads of heavily roasty malt. Peppery warming alcohol dominates ths finish. Clean and massive, potent and hugely flavourful, but still not with much depth.

15th March 2010
Very deep dark red-brown beer. Just about transparent. No real head. Mild but unfortunate paint tones on the nose. Smooth soft palate, semi dry. Rich dark malt, not bitter or roasty. Semi sweet chocolate and mild coffee and a little cream. A dash of Port Wine and another hint of paint. Not getting much hop. Hides the abv well. Quite light all round and a good flavour that would be very good sans the paint.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 2010-04-23, tasting at Papsø, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Dark brown color with red shades; generous creamy head, persistent. The aroma is very nice, with caramel, hops, vanilla and light star anise. Strong body, with powerful dark caramel flavor, sweet and alcoholic (all this well blended together); some chocolate. Strong bitterness. Solid and very good.

2009-10-18, draught at Ginger Man, NYC, 6-4-8-4-15=37
Dark brown to black color; creamy head. Overripe apples aroma. Full bodied, good mix of caramel and chocolate flavor, oxidised, peculiar, quite good. Some warmth from the alcohol. Strong bitterness, but balanced final.
