Ungstrup (34210) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Draft. A deep red beer with a collapsing light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of smoke, caramel, alcohol, and berries. The flavor is sweet malty with quite a lot of alcohol, that hits early, but then strong notes of caramel mixes in combined with some fruit, leading to a slightly smoky finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2006
(On tap) Beautiful, clear orangey brown - a shade darker than the Märzen - with a small, off-white head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt - the smoke is only a hint. Quite full-bodied with sweet notes of roasted malt and burned caramel. In the flavours the smokiness is only discreet and pleasant. Dry finish where the alcohol starts to show. Quite interesting and more harmonious than its more famous cousin from Schlenkerla. 081106

harrisoni (17143) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
At Spezial brewery Bamberg. Dark brown beer lasting beige head. Strong malty bocky aroma. But with some brown malts as well. Bit of perfume on aroma too. It’s strong i can tell. No smoke. Just strong brown malt. Christ how strong is this tastes stronger than it probably is. It’s good but I wouldn’t want more than this. A bit like an old in the UK. But not sour. Full in mouth. Good

Koelschtrinker (16785) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Malziger Antrunk, leicht rauchig, die Intensität überzeugt, da sowohl die Aspekte des Bocks als auch des Rauchmalzes deutlich erkennbar sind. Die Rauchigkeit, die sich dem bekannten "Schinken-Aroma" annähert, wird stärker, ebenso der würzige Beiton. Die Rauchigkeit ist nun der Hauptbestandteil, cremig, wie vorher sehr harmonisch. Im Abgang etwas süßer und malziger, die Rauchnoten sind hier nur noch zaghaft vertreten. Das Bier stellt einen guten Kontrast zu dem viel rauchigeren Schlenkerla Urbock dar. Gerne wieder! Vielen Dank an MoritzF für das Bier! Test vom 24.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,13,13,12,12 - 12,30
