yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2010
Magnum bottle at pre-ZBF 2010. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is wineous, loads of champagne yeast, fruity and dark malty. Light alcohol presence, no real sweetness yet a sweet impression from the dense fruity note. Dark malty and overripe fruity. Dense fruity finish. Boozy lasting impression of the finish. This is mostly odd if anything.

joergen (20491) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle at PreZBF 2010. Hazy dark brown coloured with a small beige head. Light acidic aroma of caramel, red wine and cereal with notes of alcohol. Fruity flavour of caramel, yeast and oak with notes of red wine and calvadis. Finish of red wine and alcohol. Strange beer.

Theis (13227) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle at Pre-ZBF 2010. Black - no head. Grainy, raw malt direktly from the grainbag, vegetable aroma, wierd, light barrel, yeasty, licorice, unpeasant. Sorry - I dont like this.

harrisoni (13155) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle at Pre ZBF 2010. Earthmonk with champagne yeast. It is weird. Biscuity. Almost not sour at all. Very bready from the champagne yeast. Its odd and that is the word that I kept saying as I drank it and talked about it. Good bread/yeast, some brandy like characters. But not really like Earthmonk at all. Odd, as I say, but I found the bready character very drinkable.

bu11zeye (11932) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2010
(750ml bottle) Pours a dark brown (near black) body with a medium tan head. Aroma of champagne yeast, caramel, vinous, and mustiness. Flavor of red licorice, caramel, fruit, champagne, alcohol, and vinegar. I prefer the original Aardmonnik/Earthmonk.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2010
Black with a tiny beige head. Sourish aroma with plenty of yeast, roasted malt and not really anything else. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, rye bread, lacto and funk. Very weird brew this one. I think the champagne yeast screwed it.
