yespr (31051) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2009
75 cL bottle. Pours a hazy to murky with a huge tan head. Steady growing with a clear indication of an infection. Aroma is slight tart citric, chocolate and roasted caramel malt yet also wineous. Citric and wineous fruity flavoured. Vague smoked infection note. Fruity and cacao malty flavoured finish with a mild wooden note. Lingering fruity wineous and malty finish. Nice despite the element of infection.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2006
A hazy nut-brown beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet alcoholic with notes of caramel, and hints of herbs. The flavor is sweet with light notes of both wood and alcohol, leading to an end with light notes of hops, and the alcohol still lingering around. Nice.

(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a vaguely hazy dark brown with a beige head. Vinous, port-like nose. Delicate, roasted malty accents with some alcohol. Notes of dried fruit and - again - port wine. A very refined and sophisticated brew. 270106

Hazy brown color. Some aroma of malt. Malty taste, quite sweet in the front, a lot of caramel, balancing bitterness later. Not impressive.
