Ungstrup (29482) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2003
A brown beer with a great head. The aroma is very fruity and alcoholic with notes of smoked malt. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for my liking - with a great palate, but no hops to compensate the sweetness. The flavor contains notes of smoked malt, wood and fruits. A fine beer - with great memories.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Dark amber with a reddish tint and an off-white head with pretty good retention. Very malty body with lovely notes of caramel and toffee - and spices too. Very discreet late bitterness. 311296

oh6gdx (20619) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2006
Bottled. Hazy amberish brown colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel and yeast. Flavour is caramel, sweet malts and yeast, mixed in a very pleasant way. Hides the alcohol well.

omhper (19667) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2004
Bottled. Ruby colour, lively head. Funky grapefruit mingle with toffee and yeast in the nose. The sweetness is balanced by a rich, but not overly heavy maltiness. There are notes of honey, oak and caramel. The finish is mild with just some grassy bitterness. A malt accented and discretely complex beer. Very pleasant, but not fantastic.

2012-11-16, magnum bottle, brewed 1999/11, bb 2003, 13 years old, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Amber color, compact head. Nice aroma of caramel and chestnut honey. The body is thinning, malt and caramel flavor, low bitterness, mild nutty character; the oxidisation starts showing a bit.
Old.

2007-11-09, draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, 6-3-7-3-14=33
Dark brown color. Chocolatey aroma and chocolate+caramel flavor, drier than expected. Good without thrills.

2003-06-28, bottle, 8-5-8-4-15=40
Dark red-amber color; persistent head. Very nice malt nose, and malt body, with some liquorice. Dryer than we may guess.

saxo (14095) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2005
A nice Belgian Scotch ale. Dark colour, with a large fluffy off white head atop. The nose was full of dark stone fruit, spice, and intrigue, the palette was lively and brought out the spicy side of things a bit more. A bit of caramel also going on I think.
