Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Otown Throwdown III. Shared by Bobo. Pours a murky woody brown with no carbonation- no head. Aroma is woody, oak, extreme sweet malts, red wine, vinous, sherry oxidation, and a fortified wine- almost a port sweetness then some solvent and a tart hint as well. Flavor is also sweet and sour, slight aceto, lactic, light woody funk, grapeskin, fruity esters, toffee, caramel sweetness and cedarwood oil, and then some tobacco leaves, earth, biscuit and a strange long tannic and tart finish. Strange beer.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2009
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with sour notes of lacto, fruit, and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet and acicid with strong notes of over ripe berries and grapes, as well as medium notes of brettanomyces, leading to a tart fruity finish. Thanks Steve for this.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
Cloudy brown color; no head. The aroma shows some fruity and sour side, with light vanilla oak too. Medium body strength, actually a bit light at the end, with a nice vanilla oak to cover the caramel flavor. It also has some alcohol punch. It’s a bit confusing, but not bad.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours a murky and opaque orangey brown with prety much no head. Lovely oak aroma, also somewhat vinous. Quite full-bodied, low in carbonation, sweet caramel, fruit and LOADS of oak. No real bitterness but a vague underlying tartness. Very yummy. 220909
