RB# 6200: 33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a huge chocolate brown head. Mild roasted and chocolate malty aroma. Chocolate malty flavour smooth and with a mild acidic roasted malty base. Lingering chocolate malty finish, smooth and a light acidic roasted too.

Ungstrup (31473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and prunes. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and prunes, leading to a dry finish where the prune note lingers. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a rough beige head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body with plenty of roasted malts and dried fruit - even an oaky touch. A little low in carbonation and the bitterness is subdued. Quite lovely. 220808

joergen (24491) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle. Black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Sweet and roasted aroma of liquorice and liquorice. Sweet and roasted flavour of caramel and liquorice with notes of fruits and dried fruits. Quite nice, but the dried fruits are too dominating.

oh6gdx (23691) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Deep rubyish brown/close to black colour, mediumsized brown creamy head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, slightly roasted malts and some spicyness. Flavour is smoked wood, some caramel malts and yeast. A mild, but quite wellbalanced brew.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Bruce for this one. Opaque dark beer, good pale tan head. Softish airy palate with light carbonation. Airy - creamy dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Gets papery in th mid. Light dry finish. One dimensional and a touch papery.

Courtesy of Philippe (Bov)
Black color; big head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, hop, very light liquorice and yeast. Medium mouthfeel, quite dry; aggressive roasted malt flavor, too much for my taste; some malt and caramel too. The final is too dry and too bitter. Not bad.
(this rating has been partially lost due to a washing machine accident)

yngwie (15761) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle. It pours an almost black body, really, really brown, topped by a small tan head. Butterscotch, burnt malt and coffee in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, with a coffee-bitter finish and a good dash of sweetness. Medium body. Not my kind of beer, too much butterscotch for that, but easy to drink. (080822)
