75 cL bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, light wooden, burned and mild cherry sourish fruity. Solid sourness, roasted malt, dark chocolate, mild smoked infection note and distinct fruity base flavour to this. Lingering smoked infection into the finish. Another distinct infection like sour beer, tasty but somewhat murky flavour profile. Ends sharp citric to acidic with a lingering chocolate malt flavour.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
A pitch black beer with a thick dark brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chocolate as well as some notes of vanilla, and light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet - and rather acidic - is it bret? but also with notes of wood as well as light notes of chocolate.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Black and opaque with a tall and very lively head - it keeps on coming.... Sourish aroma with some roasted malt. Medium body with an extreme carbonation - unpleasantly so - roasted and lightly burned malt accents and a very distinct acidity. The bitterness is modest. I usually really dig the Jolly Pumpkin beers for their lovely Brett edge, but it simply doesn’t work in this one. The Madrugada Obscura simply comes out as an infected Stout, which isn’t a very good experience. 160607

madmitch76 (14282) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
11th September 2008. Very frothy stout. Lots of toasty malt well offset by that typical Jolly Pumpkin sourness. Hint of smoke in the mid. The sourness had a fruity edge which also delivers a breif sweet note. Some chocolate in there too. Complex and drinkable.
