33 cL bottle with bbd in 2003 (2001 vintage) and 2000 (1998 vintage) tasted in 2007. Pours deep brown to black with a light brown head. Slight alcohol aroma in a deep roasted malt nose. flavour is oldish, same for both. Rerate needed of a fresh - doesn’t gain from ageing.

Ungstrup (38140) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2007
Bottled. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt, nuts, and some dust. The flavor is slightly acidic from the hard roasted malt, but also with light notes of nuts, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Travlr (25496) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Draught in Koeln, Germany, but poured by Patrick from Dublin. Black, typical storm in the glass, thick tan head. Aroma of burnt espresso. Creamy mouthfeel with an edge of roasted coffee and a hint of chocolate, bitter finish. Nearly as good as the irish version, and much better than the American one.

[Bottled] Transparently black, rich rocky head. Fruity aroma with some plums. Dry and very roasty. Tar and coffee are evident. Clean mouthfeel, fairly light body. Tarry finish with lingering bitterness.

A 1983 veteran!!! Still quite well carbonated. Mild smoky tones with a crisp malt and a subtle chocolate tone. Surprisingly good and has survived remarkably well.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of Ungstrup. Completely opaque black with a dense, beige head leaving laces. Lightly chocolatey nose. Fairly light body, roasted amd lightly burned malt accents. A weak tang of cardboard before a bitter finish. 180607
