yespr (31921) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 25 cL bottle. Pours deep brown/black with light brown head. Aroma is fruity (plum and raisins), hops, coffee and malt. Taste has the same in a wineous blend - and what a perfect blend! Fruit, coffee and wineous are the keynotes that I would put to this beer. I have a new favourite!

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
Bottled. Very dark brown with a thick but collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of yeast, chocolate, and spices. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of chocolate, alcohol, malt, spices, and yeast, the spices include cinnamon and coriander. The alcohol tickles the tongue, the tickling lasts for a long time after swallowing.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) Dark brown, dirty looking beer with large amounts of sediment. Limited, light brown head. An extremely heavy beer, in the same style as the best (and strongest) trappist beers from Rochefort and Westfleteren. Resembles portwine with hints of chocolate, dates -basically anything dark, powerful and sweet. The alcohol warms me up. To be enjoyed in small quantities. 210204

joergen (21497) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown coloured with an off white head. Sweet aroma of dried fruits and spices with notes of alcohol. Sweet flavour with lots of dried fruits, spices and caramel.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2006
Bottled. Dark brown colour, small off-white head. Aroma of yeast, sour fruits and orange marmelade. Marmelade, yeast and sweet malts in flavour. Positively sweet, but still very wellbalanced, and best of all, it hides the 12% ABV very well. Complex, and I bet this would age very well.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2003
Bottled. Dark ruby. Concentrated aroma of sweet malt and cherries. Thick and syrupy, very sweet and very malty. Very dense and flavourful. Grassy finish with some bitterness.

Warning! Early amateur rating! A very dark ale. Crisp palate. Nice flavour but marred by a long bitter malt finish. Lacks the drinkability of its ’Dark’ sibling.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 2008-05-13, bottle at Ris Ras, Århus, 7-4-8-3-16=38
Dark brown color; thin opersistent head. Nice caramel aroma and flavor, round body, sweet, full mouthfeel, a footprint of belgian yeast at the end, maybe not too bitter. Very good.

2004-07-03, bottled 2000; 4 years old, 8-4-9-5-17=43
Dark amber color; poor head. Strong malty aroma, a bit fruity. Very good mouthfeel, full malty, sweet, very well balanced by the hopping; caramel, fruitness, nuts, spices (cinnamon, ginger, aniseed). Ends with a good hopping, some liquorice and spices…
Excellent!

cgarvieuk (15163) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2010
Bottle in De Garre ... and one of Stella faves of the trip ... deep brown ... thin tan head ... sweet toffee malt ... little yeast nose ... soft creamy toffee malts ... smooth creamy and a little ovatine.
