Ungstrup (33459) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2009
Bottled at RBESG 2008. A murky brown beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, over ripe fruits, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce, but also with a light acidity from the hard roasted malt. The alcohol leaves a burn in the throat.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a muddy dark brown with floating impurities and a creamy light brown head. Fruit, burned malt and a distinct burning alcohol in the nose. Quite full-bodied but with a low carbonation. Notes of nots and fruit - dried and overripe - and then again this roaring alcohol in the finish. Wauw - extreme! 270708

omhper (22763) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2008
Bottled at RBESG. Cloudy very dark brown. Aroma of treacle and metal. Extrenmely sweet and inky. Viscous with a flavour and mouthfeel as an ink and tar milkshake. The massive bofy in combination with, super excessive sweetness, the freajy bitterness and the ridicolous amounts of alcohol makes it really tough to stomach. My tastebuds almost go berserk and ceases to register anything but inky bitterness.

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, 12oz, 2010 edition and 2007 edition side by side. As expected the 2010 edition has more and longer lasting head, both heads beige in color. Dark brown to black body for both. The aromas are quite similar, seemingly the cellaring hasn’t done much. Alcohol, soy, roasted malts and some coffee on the nose. Not much difference in flavor either, soy, licorice notes, roasted malts, dark sugars and alcohol. Very warming, full-bodied. An intense one, it wasn’t until now I noticed it’s supposed to be 18% ABV, displains the warmth, but if it’s this strong the alcohol is well hidden. Interesting. 110820
