Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2005
A red-brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet roasted and malty combined with notes of chocolate. THe flavor is also sweet roasted and malty, but here the main notes are of prunes, leading to a dry roasted end. Nice.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2002
Black with creamy head. Big maltiness, slightly vinuous, plum character. Finishes with lingering hop bitterness. Very nice beer in the same style as the Baltic porters.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Black color. It has a mild aroma of caramel, and very light coffee. The flavor mixes loads of dark caramel and a touch of dark chocolate and roasted malt; in the beginning it reminds me the Calanda Dunkel that I used to drink in the early 90’s, then it becomes more chewy than that. At the end there is a very light liquorice perception and just a bit too much roasted malt for me. Pleasant.
