12 fl oz bottle at Svea, courtesy of joergen. Pours unclear and dark brown to black with a small and dense tan head. Berry fruity aroma with a distinct roasted malt note. Sweet fruity at first with a dark acidic roasted malty flavour following. Light wooden and dry. Bitter and mild berry fruity into the far finish with a nice hard roasted flavour and acidity.

Ungstrup (29230) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2003
The aroma is sweet, smoked with slight notes of chocolate. The color is pitch black and it has a fine brown head. The flavor is sweet, sligthly smoked with notes of coffee and chocolate. Really good for a low alcohol stout.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) A stout reminiscent of fluid tar when poured: thick and extremely dense. A carbonation is so heavy that it’s almost impossibly to pour without spilling. Beautiful brownish head. Very, very spicy and heavy on the smoked malts. Peat, tar all the same associations as you get when drinking the more smod Scottish single malts. Not heavy in body though, neither that bitter. A beer with great personality.

joergen (20664) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle at Svea, Malmö. Black coloured with a medium sized fast disappearing beige head. Roasted aroma dominated by berries with notes of coffee. Roasted flavour of coffee, berries and hops with notes of grass and chocolate. Hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (20302) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2006
Bottled. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma of candy sugar chocolate and coffee. Flavour is quite the same but very sourish. Watery palate. Third or fourth Shipyard for me, so far they have not impressed me at all...
