yespr (30913) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small orange glare and a fully gone head. Whisky like and roasted malty aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a smooth chocolate base. Slight alcohol burn out of the roasted malt and chocolate flavours. Smooth yet warming but not without some edge to it.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of over ripe fruits and a bit of oxidation, leading to a dry fruity finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

yngwie (13399) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle, shared by papsoe. A clear, dark brown pour leaves a small beige head. Mocha, chocolate, dried fruits, some vanilla and spirits and a little note of oxidation in the aroma. The flavor is on the mocha and chocolate side, with some oxidation and alcohol. Is there a touch of dms too? Medium body and a coffee-bitter finish. A quite nice one, and sure not a dirty old beer.

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2008
Cloudy dark brown colour. Big toffee aroma with some light rye notes. Soft, sweet body with interesting figgy, rummy notes. Way sweet, but beautiful luscious malts going on and on isn’t really a bad thing in my book.
