RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark brown in color with foamy tan head. Dark fruits, plums and raisins, some vinous notes and dry wood in aroma. Raisins in taste, portvine vibes as well, some wooden barrels in taste. Classy. A bit too much carbonated perhaps. Brown sugar, more ripe dark fruits and maltyness in finish. Some beers require some ’airing’ before enjoying them, this beeing one of them. More soft towards the end and thus quite smooth, which is nice.

Opaque dark brown beer, tidy off white head. Softish palate, a little dry. Smooth malt with a little caramel. Tangy fruits and coca cola. Mild cream. Semi dry finish. Fairly well joined up. Not bad.

3yr old cellared bottle brought back from Belgium. Pours a hazy dark brown with a quickly dissipating head. Slightly sweet aroma of plums. Taste is very smooth, slightly sweet, and some malt. One of my favorite beers and pairs well with lots of different types of food.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2012
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has notes of cherries, malt, caramel, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, bread, berries, and malt, leading to a dry finish.

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle, 33 cl. Almost clear reddish brown with a small, but stabble beige head. Ripe fruity, almost winegum-like nose. Taste is smooth malty, caramel, dark fruity, light nutty. Full bodied, sticky texture, lingering fruity finish. Nice one...

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours an almost clear reddish brown with a creamy beige head - comes as a slow gusher. Rustic aroma of overripe - even rotten - dark fruit, quite pruney with a hint of wood and Brett. Rich and filling body - very enjoyable - but the carbonation has these huge and vulgar Belgian bubbles. Again prunes and overripe fruit combined with brown sugars and some decent balancing hops. Nice - apart from the excessive carbonation. 131112

Swaroga (1247) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark red with medium tanned head. Nose : strong red fruits notes with dominating cherry. Tart with delicate burned aroma. Vanilla. Some flower and honey background. Sip : medium thick body with oily texture and low carbonation. Sweet with cooked fruits flavor. Bubblegum. It ends with well balanced sourness and a pinch of metal. some delicate chocolate with malaga background. Overall it is a nicely bodied brew with awfully balanced flavors. I would prefer some more audacity. Anyway, I still like this one.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2012
33cl bottle: labelled as ’Strandjuttersbier MONG de Vos, bought with a pack of other brews at a beer shop in Wenduine who have it bottled/labelled for them. Poured into a Westmalle chalice on 10th Oct 2012 @ home: no sediment left the bottle. Browny red sort of hue to the colour: the thin off-white head didn’t even stay as long as it’s took to write this! The smells were/are of stewed plums and candid fruits for a cake mix: this is one alcohol laden fruit cake in a glass. The taste is very simular to what your nose is telling you: rich, alcoholic and fruity (plums and raisins mostly). Sweet and fairly thin bodied for the alcohol content, the alcohol is present from the start and is barely hidden. It does however give the beer a punch and helps to hide the lack of body. This is a ’roaring fire’ sort of winter beer: I enjoyed it.
