Ungstrup (29493) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2010
Draft. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. The flavor is swet with strong notes of chocolate combined with medium notes of malt, coffee, wood, and soy sauce, as well as lighter notes of hops and citrus fruits. The alcohol tickles the palate.

GBBF Day 2. Cask. Opaque dark brown beer, residual tan head. Palate is dry with fine carbonation. Dry rich dark malts. Unsweet dark chocolate, savoury like salted dark chocolate. Big roast and dark chocolate bitterness. Touch of soy. Dry finish. Savoury aftertaste. Not a fan, too savoury, bitter and dry. Quite hard to drink.

brokensail (11101) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is pitch black with a thin layer of mocha colored head that sticks around for a surprisingly long time. S: A really rich and sweet nose on this beer. Lots of burnt sugar, licorice, and dark fruits to begin with. The roasted malt character is intense (as is the coffee) and there’s a bit of a dark chocolate thing going on as well. T: The roast and coffee start things off with a big bitter kick. That dies away quite abruptly and the sweetness really comes through. Lots of licorice, burnt sugar, molasses, and alcohol. M: The body is on the full side with a medium but smooth carbonation. D: Somehow I kept missing this beer, but I finally got to try it. I enjoyed it quite a bit, though it would have been to put away of large amount of this.
