Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 14, 2004
A dark brown beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted bread, fruit, and caramel. The flavor is lovely sweet caramel with lightly burnt notes as well as roasted malt and nuts before a light hoppy bitter end catches up. A very nice beer.

oh6gdx (25453) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2009
Bottled (once again thanks to the craziest bartender in the world!). Rubyish amber colour with mediumsized slightly off-white creamy head. Aroma is caramel malts along with some grassy and wooden notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with some raisins/plum. A bit sweeter than Iím used to having ESBís, but also very drinkable.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown with a reddish hue and a tall and lacing head. Dark, malty notes. Markedly bitter with a discreet underlying sweetness. Has the sort of "ashy" dryness so often found in stouts which the beer closely resembles. Not bad, just not really up my alley. 141002

Dark ale. Toffeeish malt followed by a dry finish with just a hint of hop. Slightly hard work.

Bottle at Euston Tap with Nick. Lovely ruby pour with a foamy, tan head. Ripe fruits, berries in the nose, light toast. Lightly sweet, some toffee and berries, lightly toasted malts. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Some dark sugars in the finish, more ripe fruits, a bit of earthy hops. Pretty good stuff.
