Ungstrup (29081) - 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.

Papsoe (25090) - 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

oh6gdx (20217) - 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 I’m used to having ESB’s, but also very drinkable.

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