Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
An unclear brown beer with a collapsing brown head. The aroma is yeasty and quite spicy. The flavor is sweet yeasty and very spicy, though I can’t pick out what spices, the alcohol also makes its mark by burning the mouth and leaving you with a warming fealing.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2006
(Bottle 30 cl) Pours a pretty, clear red brown with a small, off-white head. Spicy, lightly herbal aroma. Rather flat carbonation. Medium-bodied, lightly tart with very spicy accents - mint and aniseed in particular. Very different and interesting. A "gruit beer". 300606

oh6gdx (20919) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2009
Bottled (from Cracked Kettle). Deep rubyish brown colour, small brownish bubbly head. Aroma is juniper, licorice, caramel and some mild notes of alcohol. Flavour is licorice, spices, caramel, fruits, malts and some cool wooden and herbal notes which stay in the throat. Very nicely balanced thing.

Clear red brown beer. Softish palate, fairly dry. A little chocolate in the malt. Herby fruits and a small amount of spice.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
Cloudy dark brown color; nice perlage, big head. Strong aroma, with caramel and malt, quite Belgian, mature (the bottle was in my cellar for at least one year). Medium body strength, with sweetish mouthfeel, a lot of caramel; the mouthfeel becomes drier at the end, with not much bitterness, and the warming alcohol feeling; quite boring…
