weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Bottle. Ooh I liked this one. Poured pretty much black with a thin short lasting tan head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Flavour is whiskey ice cream, some fruit, wood, little licorice. Long dry bitter finish. The American influence comes through. I like countries having a bash at another countries style. Bursting with awesomeness.

Blairgus (4389) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 3 May 2011, bottle. black or very dark brown. amazing nose! alcohol and blue fruit. full body and very fizzy. stout background but fruit is dominant in flavour and in sugars. sugar is a fruit sugar not an alcohol or rich malty sweetness. there is a fruit tartness as well. nice but too tart. (original rating = 6, 3, 8, 3, 15 = 3.5) dark brown, cat see through it great chocolate smell w/ really strong blue fruit (dont know what a tayberry is) smell full body and mostly flat very sweet and syrupy. i couldnt drink much of this b/c it is so sweet but boy is it great. Amazing!

Ungstrup (36154) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2011
Bottled. A black beer with a very fast disappearing dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, wood, whiskey, and roasted malt. The flavor is very sweet and roasted combined with notes of raspberries, wood, whiskey, and alcohol, leading to a bitter and roasted finish. Huge thanks yespr for sharing.

KnutAlbert (6751) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle from the brewery. More sweet and sour than the other variety, the beery character is not as playful. The carbonation is not present, emaning a heavier beer. Pleasant, fine berry flavour, but not as outstanding as its broher.
