ElManana (1148) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2015
Draft at Gents Bierfestival 2015. Watery dark brown. Lots of wine, vanilla, malt, caramel, some roast. Nice beer, but way too thin (in both mouthfeel and taste-complexity) to call it an imperial stout.

Bamsen78 (4454) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2015
Draught @ C4, Odense. Pours slightly hazy very dark brown with airy beige head. Dusty aroma with notes of roast, barrel and pronounced vinous touches. Sweetish flavour of vanilla, with notes of barrel, malt and vine. Estery hints. Mildly vinous and roasty and estery aftertaste. Very pleasant, although rather far from typical examples of the style.

Ungstrup (30790) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2015
Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has has very strong notes of wine, fruits, and alcohol, as well as medium notes of roasted malt - crazy, but maybe over the top? The flavor is very sweet with notes of prunes, alcohol, oranges, wine, wood, dark chocolate, and roasted malt, leading to a dry roasted finish. Crazy.
