yespr (40454) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish huge and huge light brown/off-white head. Fruity an light medicine like aroma. Flavour is smooth malty with hints of chocolate and some spice notes. A smooth yeast flavour shines through. There is a slight banana fruity flavour beneath. Faint and soft liqourice note. Finish is more of the same smooth malt notes and a start of a winous feel. Otherwise extremely well hidden alcohol. Nice but not fantastic.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2003
The aroma is sweet, fruity with notes of plums - a pretty complex aroma. The color is a deep red and it has a small beige head though fast disappearing. The flavor is sweet and rich in fruit; plums, raisins, and prunes. The alcohol ticles the tongue which combines with the bitterness into a dry end. It has a good palate which in combination with the alcohol makes it rather winous.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Medium brown with a decent off-white head. Typical dark brown malty flavour + perhaps a touch of ...licorice? Body is only medium in spite of the strong alcohol making this rather easy to drink. More dry than bitter, although with a pronounced touch of hops. 051093

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Brown with a loose short lived foam head, strong slightly sour malt nose, bit too much fizz, rich roast malt with little bitter malt linger, and a bit too yeasty 2.8...

Tk2 Big thanks to Joris for this aged bottle Deep copper colour ... sweet bready with plums nose ... rich sweet bready malty treacly ... plums raisins ... madiara ... this bottle is in stark contrast to the previous bottle. must try another fresh one to see if its the age that make the difference.
