Ungstrup (34691) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2009
Bottled #362. A hazy deep red beer with a thin lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of fresh fruit, cranberries, wood, roasted malt, and over ripe fruit. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of dusty hops, over ripe fruits as well as lighter notes of cranberries, alcohol, and chocolate. There is a slight tartness in the finish. Thanks Shaun for sharing.

Opaque black stout. Soft palate. Very tangy, flirting with sour. Dark chocolate malt offset by the sourish cranberry. These two flavours dominate and make for an interesting if not entirely harmonious brew.

yngwie (16524) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2010
Bottle, 75cl, from trade with Akevitt. A dark brown beer topped by a dark beige head. Vinous, berryish nose with cocoa and roasted malts. Very smooth, if one can use that word when talking aroma. Slightly roasted flavor, with berries and hints of cocoa, quite vinous, but not much alcohol warming. Full-bodied. Some berry-like sourness finishes the whole thing. A lovely beer! Smooth, vinous and slightly sourish, all very well balanced. 091113
