Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2007
Had this twice (so far), a handbottled version generously shared by MadsBerg and at GABF 2007. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of roasted malt as well as medium notes of brown sugar, wood, and bourbon. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, bourbon, and soy sauce, leading to a dry bourbon finish. The alcohol leaves a slight burn on the palate.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2007
(Hand bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of madsberg. Pours completely opaque black with a tiny, light brown head. Aroma is of burned malt. Quite a full body rich with burned malts - but hey, what happened to the bourbon? Malt astringent finish. 270607

hopdog (11579) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Growler acquired in trade with Ughsmash (thanks!). Poured a dark black color with a smaller sized brown head. Aromas of chocolate, wood, lighter bourbon, roast, and vanilla. Tastes of bourbon, vanilla, some dark fruits, chocolate, and light coffee. The bourbon was on the softer side and done nicely (it wasn’t over powering). I never would have guessed this puppy was over 11%!

madsberg (11403) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
Handbottled. Pitch black coloured. LIght brown head. Sweetness, cocoa, coconut, smoke and light roast in the aroma. Flavour is quite roasty. Loads of coffee and chocolate. Bourbonbarrel is not notable, but alcohol is quite notable. Medium bodied. Loads of alcohol and roast in the end. Thanks to Ugshmash for this beer.
