riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2007
A roasty chocolate malt aroma. Definite sweetenss comes through in the nose. The beer is black with a tan head. It looks a little muddy and crude as well. Flavor is intensely roasty, nutty, and chocolatey. It finishes pretty crisp with a lingering coffee flavor.

Ungstrup (38596) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
Draft at the Carlsbad location. A black beer with a red shine under a tan head. The aroma is very malty combined with notes of bread and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with a light acidic edge from the roasted malt, since it is rather roated, and has a dry, bitter, and roasted finish. 28 IBU’s. MIne was stated at 4.4% ABV.

Urge. Black with fizzy eggshell head. Nose light roasted malt and high sweetness. Very light nose. Taste light flat malty smack with only a hint of sweet. Not a lot there but is good for the style.
