Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2005
A hazy dark red beer with an orange-brown head. The aroma is yeasty combined with notes of alcohol and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, giving it a sticky mouthfeel.

Brown-amber colour, thick head. Very light aroma, not very pleasant. Decent body, but spoiled by un unpleasant sourness.

imdownthepub (9636) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2009
Bottled, 330ml, aged 4.5yrs. Dark chestnut brown with faint cream head. Sweet and fruity dark beer with noticeable alcohol accent. The fruitiness is likw a sweet Dessert wine, full of grape and pulp, the alcohol gives it a nasal quality. Finishes quickly, worth giving a try.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. The first beer of thisexcellent gathering and it looked like a murky mud bath in the glass. The aroma was a bit on the sour chocolate side with a bit of fruit and some hidden sugars. The taste was much better; it was very chocolatey and reminded me of one of those kirsch liqueur chocolates with a whole cherry in. I think the beer may have been past its best although no BBE date could be found. However it was interestingly tasty enough to warrant a reasonable score.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2005
Dark purple-brown in colour with a diminishing head. Aromas are sweet malts with a fruity sour edge. Flavours are lightly roasted malts with hints of dark chocolate bitterness. Quite earthy and dry with a bitter, dry finish. A bit sticky on the palate. I didn’t taste any of the sourness that my fellow raters did, some fruitiness perhaps but nothing acidic. Not the richest of brunes but pretty decent.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
OK, so this had been shaken up on the journey, so perhaps it is understandable that this looked like murky, muddy pondwater. Clearly pretty old (no date indication or best before date on the bottle). Cocoa and chocolate, with some fruit in the aroma. Rather sweet, with very little hop grip. Nonetheless, once I got used to this, I rather enjoyed it. Bottled (not filtered, obviously) at the RB/Joet London gathering, courtesy of maeib.

Emil (6067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle. Red brown colour with a small baige head. Sweet dark fruits aroma and a sweet fruity taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

marcus (6017) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Consumed at Kulminator Cafe in Antwerp, 1984 bottle. This brown ale poured with a tiny white head that dissipated immediately. There is a sharp acidic aroma that matches the sour brown flavor. This beer has aged much better than would be expected of a brown ale.
