Ungstrup (29110) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
Bottled. A deep red beer with a rim of tan head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of fruits and black currant, cherries, and chocolate - reminds me of ’Mon Cherie’ chocolates. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of berries and fruit - especieally cherries and black currant. The alcohol burns on the inside of the lips. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of goryshkewych. Pours a cloudy amber with a small and rough beige head. Extremely intense blackcurrant aroma that becomes almost fat. Medium body, very thick and syrupy sweet blackcurrant notes yet bitter and astringent with some alcohol burn in the finish. 161209

Bottled, thanks Marsblursi! Hazy mahogany colour, minimal head. Rich aroma of black currant surbet and alcohol. Very sweet with loads of estery black currant. Some cramel lures underneath until cranbery vodka strikes and ruine the party. Finishes with vodka, mango and dextrose. Never tasted anything like this before...

Cloudy brown beer. Resonant blackcurrant nose. Slight dry palate. Rich blackcurrant immediately demands attention. A dry almost Port Wine like mid. Imagine a good vintage Port Wine with just the blackcurrant flavours extracted and that describes this beer well. Pretty one dimensional but it’s dimension is robust! Fresh blackcurrant,spirity blackcurrant, blackcurrant liquer! Unique beer. It’s blackcurrant by the way!

Huge thanks to a trade (again i forget who. i really should trade less) ... almost black ... deep bluered black... no head ... sweet blackcurrant berry nose very rich ... little vanilla in nose ... huge alcohol presence up front ... lots of vanilla and barley wine tones(ahhh i just read its pedigree above so this makes sence) ... plums and blackcurrent ... nice but not hittinf spot for me... a bit oxidised or something that i cant put words on

TBone (12428) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2008
Draught@Hop Devil Grill, NYC, vintage 2006
Dark ruby color, opaque, no head. Intensive black currant aroma. Full-bodied. Liquerish black currant flavor. A bit grassy, but otherwise like drinking black currant liquer. Well, not very beerish, but I like this - an excellent dessert beer. Craftmanship of Kuhnhenn is excellent (the rest of notes unreadable after drinking 5 small pints of their extreme beers).
