Had this during a sampling at a local liquor store and wasn’t impressed, which stands true for most of their stuff.

And yet another flat beer. I think after 5 from the same sample pack I have to asume its the caps or they got hot?

Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown with practically no head at all. Has the aroma of dirt and chocolate. After observing the scent, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it didn’t taste as bad as I expected it to. Tastes somewhat of burnt chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal. This beer also has a watery taste to it as well and the aftertaste wasn’t all that bad either. Overall I’d say it was an enjoyable beer, but I don’t see myself trying it again in the near future

Aroma: dirt. Slight caramel. Pretty weak, or maybe just compared to the Triple Bock that preceded it. Some compost. Not much roast character at all. Watery. Some redeeming qualities in the finish-like charcoal, some nice hops, and some chocolate.

Bottle Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. The head leaves quickly. Has a good aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and creamy oatmeal. Has a light carbonatiom. A fairly decent mouthfeel. The flavor is good with n ice spices, chacolate backbone, and some sour bitterness. Has a watery to oily texture. A medium body. A good finish and a nice aftertaste. Not too thick but still a touch on the hearty side.

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle with thanks to Andy. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head and very decent aromas of leather, chocolate, oats and roasted malt. Things quickly fall apart on first sip, however. This is very thin and has a little bit too much of a burnt edge to it that the chocolate and oat malt flavors can’t quite control. It comes across as almost a little sour at the edge with the amount of bitterness, which doesn’t work well with what the nose had previously established.

[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is pretty nice, with very deeply roasted malt, and a good deal of chocolate. The taste begins sweet before transitioning to deeply roasted malt. There is also coffee, lighter chocolate than the aroma, and a lot of grain. Fairly thin, with a long finish. The char gets to be a bit much, but it is still a decent beer.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2009
Bottled. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt, roasted malt, hops, grass, and spices. The flavor is sweet with strong notes fo roasted malt and medium notes of sweet malt and a light notes of burnt wood, leading to an extremely dry, bitter, and coffee finish. Too much for me. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Guerde (1182) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2009
(bottle from OSLO) Pours jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma starts out with a large dose of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, and hints of soy, salt, and green pepper as it warms up. The taste is straightforward and simple, with roasted malt and dark chocolate that gives way to a faint bitterness along with a roasty finish. There’s also a spike of tartness right before the finish, but I can’t place the exact flavor of it. Further warming reveals hints of smoke on the finish as well. Mouthfeel is medium, and carbonation is smooth. All in all, not a bad beer at all, and it seems to be a bit underrated. Thanks Al!
