Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with next to no head only a rim of brown head next to the glass. The aroma is sweet and very roasted combined with notes of soy sauce, alcohol, wood, and dark bitter chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of hard roasted malt, chocolate, wood, leather, and caramel, leading to a dry and very bitter finish with notes of chocolate lingering.. The body is a bit thin inspite of the 7.3% ABV. Work on the head retention and body.

As Thorups Herrebryg Stout, at Thorups Kælder, Århus
Black color; generous creamy head. The aroma mixes heavily roasted malts and evident liquorice, lightly creamy and buttery. Correct body strength; mild roasted malt flavor, dryish, with strong liquorice; correct bitterness too, but in the final the liquorice is even stronger.
It plays with elements that I don’t fancy, so I’m not overly excited, nevertheless is correctly brewed.

yngwie (14715) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle. Clear-looking, dark brown body with a reddish hue. The head is tan and creamy, and leaves nice lacings as the beer is consumed. The aroma is slightly sour, with lots of roasted malt and coffee like scents. Surprisingly thin body for a 7.2% ABV stout, but there’s also a sweetish feeling. Flavorwise, it has burnt malt, a little fruity note, a pleasant oxidation in the background, and a coffee-like bitterness. Licorice too. The finish is long, with bitterness, mostly coffee-like bitterness, some licorice, and dried fruits. A little warming touch from the alcohol too. The beer is a bit "different" but quite nice. Not too drinkable though. But I like it... (071114)
