37.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown with a lacing off-white head. Alcohol dense malt aroma, spiced too. Flavour is dense malt and solid to burning alcohol. Holds a sharp burn into the finish. Warming alcohol finish with a lingering malt note. Has somewhat of a burn into the far finish. Way too alcohol dense for my liking.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2009
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a fast disappearing tan head. The aroma is has notes of sweet malt and alcohol as well as extremely strong notes of vanilla and bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, and wood as well as some signs of oxidation. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

(Bottle 37,5 cl) Courtesy of fordest. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber golden with a small, off-white head. Distinct boozy aroma but also pleasant overripe fruit. Full-bodied with a smooth carbonation, loads of overripe fruit, oak and vanilla - everything bourbony is there. Also very boozy finish - just how we like it. 200608

Bottled, thanks Marsblursi! Cloudy mahogany colour. Woody whiskey aroma. Sweet and full bodied. A bit sticky with some syrup and lots of alcohol. Sugar and vanilla mingle with caramel and prunes. They’re a bit hard on the booze though, so the alcohol burn gets a bit overwhelming. I prefer the regular Old Stock.

14.6% Version. Cloudy dark brown beer, no head. Light fresh sea breeze nose with a whisper of bourbon. Light palate, crisp and woody - dry. Sweet vanilla bourbon. Minerally mid and then dry creamy licorice with a little spice. Finishes dry. Obviously a strong beer but it doesn’t present much alcohol heat. Delightful if a tad dry.

Great thanks to Papsoe for sharing
Cloudy reddish dark amber color. It has a very nice, delicate, vanilla aroma; also, a bit alcoholic, woody, earthy. It has a medium body structure, with good caramel sweet flavor, but too extreme alcohol feeling. Very unbalanced (thinner body than expected, too high alcohol), difficult to drink or appreciate a full glass.
