yespr (32344) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 18, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy amber/deep orange to brown with a huge light tan head. Light spiced, mild fruity and yeasty aroma. Flavour is sweet fruity with a light caramel and mild yeasty note following. Nicely spiced to provide some dryness and light acidic touch to the otherwise rather sweet dubbel brew. Light estery finish. Goes fantastic with barbequed chicken and turkish potatoes.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 A hazy deep red-brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of berries, but also lighter notes of yeast and wood. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of yeast, but also notes of wood, prunes, and berries, as well as hints of the alcohol. It is very sparkling on the tongue due to the carbonation, and it ends of with a slight alcohol burn.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Beautiful mahogany with a tint of red. Creamy, off-white head leaving some laces. Sophisticated, vinous aroma with distinct alcohol. The body is solid and full with plenty of roasted malt. Sweet, fruity notes - of dried fruit like raisins in particular. Also very warming alcohol in the finish. 291205

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottled (thanks Degarth). Brownish amber colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is alcohol, spices and herbs. Flavour is spices and licorice. Slight notes of some caramel and candyish sweetness. I think this could do with some "heavier meaty foods" better than it’s without.

Hazy dark red brown beer, good cream - tan head coloured head. Crispy dry palate. Malt led with a nice dark toffee streak. Mild minerals. Thins out a bit toward the dry finish. A bit one dimensional.
