Bottle from alesbymail. Strong fruit, ash & malt aroma. Very dark brown with a massive foamy head. Ash malt flavour, not getting much blackberry. Slightly fruity aftertaste. Drinkable but not great.

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2008
Bottled. A dark brown beer with no head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of roasted malt and hints of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt lending it a slight acidicy, but also with a weird fruit and prune note.

(on bottle) Dark brown, small, white head. Dry. semi-medical in aroma. Turf-taste, good carbonation. Continues t be a dry, waterish beer, in finish also. Very distant fruityness, not blackbeerry, but coulden´t confirm it.

thewolf (11383) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle @ thewolfs pre-festival tasting, Kolding.
Pours deep brown with a small, beige, creamy head. Aroma is dry chocolate, light raisins and some berries. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour has light raisins, plums, berries, black currants and ashy chocolate. A bit weird, but I kind of like it.

Christian (11612) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
Dark brown with a small off-white head. Chocolate and figs in the aroma. Flavour starts fruity sweet with plum and blackcurrant, but finishes porter-like dry with charcoal roast notes. A mess in my humble opinion.
