yespr (30908) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 15, 2007
75 cL champagne bottle. Pours deep amber with light offwhite head. Arom is yeasty, chocolate and hops. Full bodied and slight creamy feel. Flavour is sweet, subdued hops bitterness followed by a complex chocolate based bitterness palate. Lingers chocolately into the finish, a touch of alcohol reaches the nose in the finish. I had this at home for desert with a chocolate mousse, which I can only recommend :)

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 15, 2004
A clear brown beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is sweet caramel with notes of raisins and plums. The flavor is sweet with notes of raisins, plums, and wood. It is very sparkling before a dry hoppy end sets in. The flavor and dryness in the end is a bit more than I'd prefer, but it is still a really good beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Very dark, almost black with a fine slightly off-white head. Huge almost vulgar champagne-like bubbles. Extremely complex aromas of....I don’t really know what - some coffee perhaps. Dry and rather bitter. But an extremely complex flavoural pattern and indeed a unique experience. 190305

Warning! Early amateur rating! Frothy beer! Creamy and quite a light palate. Nice dark malts - never too bitter or roasty. Easy to drink but packs a wallop!

2010-08-11, bottle at RisRas, Århus, bb 05/2010, 8-5-8-4-17=42
Dark brown color; medium sized head. Nice, mild aroma of chocolate, Belgian yeast, cork, spices. Good body strength; spicy chocolate flavor, pleasant residual sweetness. The bitterness is not very high. Warming alcohol. Very enjoyable.

2004-12-11, 10-5-8-5-18=46
Dark color; nice head. Very complex aroma, with a base of banana and much more (spices? Chocolate? Herbs? Mint? …). High carbonation, but still good malt and strong bitterness.
