DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2009
No rates for over 3 years? Hardly surprising. 59p bottle from Hinckley B+M. Dark ruby with a slim beige rim. Just smells totally wrong with a burnt jam/cooked vomit/hoboís sock sweetness like Nigerian Guinness that makes me want to wretch. Sorgum? No, definitely sock. I really donít want to put this in my mouth. Regurgitated Bacardi and cola Panda Pop flavour, cloying and impossible. World-beatingly, irredeemably vile beer like (I would imagine) another person, probably a teenage binge-drinker, being forcibly sick in your mouth. One for the raters. The worst Iíve found yet.

Ungstrup (36889) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
An unclear brown beer with a huge bubbly lazing head. The aroma is sweet herbal. While the flavor is very sweet with a slight artificial touch as well as light notes of caramel. The end is dry, but yet sticky. I rather have a gluten beer ;-)

Deep reddish colour with a light brown head. Malty aroma with a light fruity touch, hints of alcohol. Malty and fruity flavor with a light sweetness. Alcohol sweet finish.

sunevdj (4072) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2006
Pours a dark reddish brown wit a tanned head. Sweet with strange aromas of apples and pears. Perfumed. Not quite like a stout. Awfu. lMaybe it should have contained some of what it doesnīt (eg. fish, milk or celery).

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2006
Bottle. Brown colored with medium sparkly head. A bit nutty and fruity. Tastes way to artificial for me. Kinda perfumed and glue like.

joergen (27591) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2006
Bottle. Clear red brown coloured with a beige head. Aroma of overriped apples and alcohol. Flavour of overriped apples and almonds. Stout ?

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2006
Bottled: This is a quite special brew. I love the label as it states at the beer is wheat-free. How nice! The brew is quiete spicey and complex with many unreal tastes. A psychedelic beer.

HildigŲltur (5105) - KÝbenhavn, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2006
Bottled. Reddish brown coloured. Loads of pears in the aroma with notes of glue. Sweet flavour with loads of nuts and also many different chemicals, but in a rather nice way. Pear aftertaste. A very funny beer

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 17, 2006
Tasted 17/02/2006. 330ml bottle from New World, Island Bay. Dark brown, almost black, with a walnut hue in the light. Lightish tan head, disappears quickly and leaves a mild lace. Not a great sweet and sour combination on the nose suggests caramel, crystal grain, choc-chip cookie, green apples, sawdust and slightly toasted grainy bread. Sweet caramel up front with a touch of chocolate, coffee and sour milk through the middle, and a very grainy, tannic, astringent finish. Medium weight but lively carbonation. Sour, woody, lingering flavour. Must be unfiltered because, although there were no crustaceans or celery, there was certainly a heap of sediment in the bottom of the bottle.
