Ungstrup (38489) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, wood, and tannins, leading to a dry tannic, roasted, and woody finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

24th September 2010. Borefts Beer Festival.
Opaque black beer - residual suddy white head. Dry semi crisp palate. Rich minerally dark chocolate and a little coffee. The Bordeaux is quite subtle but is there in the undertone supporting the beer very well. Gets sweeter and creamier before a dry finish. Very well joined up.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle 18 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Bottle # 260. Pours pitch black with hardly any head. Nose has some hard roast and a little wood. Solid body, completely flat, hard roast indeed, some vanilla and dark dried fruits. Very malt astringent. The barrell doesn’t really come through in this much. 230311

4.1
Leighton (22329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Paul. Pours oily, red-brown-black with a small, off-white bubble head. Dark malt aroma, some booze, dark fruits, dark cocoa. Medium to big sweet flavor, some dry wood, burnt sugar, burnt wood, baking cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, fairly dry wood, oily chocolate, some dark bread. Very good. Quite big. The only real red wine characteristic would be the woody dryness. Very nice overall, though.
