Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 4, 2012
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge very dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, dark bitter chocolate, wood, bourbon, and dextrose. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and dextrose, as well as medium notes of dark bitter chocolate, bourbon, and wood, leading to a dry, very bitter, and alcholic finish. A bit too boozy for my liking.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Lovely clean Bourbon aroma that overpowers most of the roast. Quite some booze up there too. Rich body with heavy roast and dark dried fruit. Lots of oak and Bourbon, but get’s really, really hot and hard to drink towards the finish. I’d like to try this with some more age on it, hopefully the edges have smoothened somewhat. 030412
