Ungstrup (36498) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2004
A deep red beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet chocolately, but also with notes of vanilla. The flavor is sweet and very roasty, almost burnt, and with a very dry end. Nice.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2004
Cask conditioned - no sparkler Malt Shovel Northampton BF. Malty nutty aroma. The beer is almost black but has russet tints to it. Chewy malty flavour typical of the style. A well balnced tasty beer.

SilkTork (5693) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2004
White Cliffs Winter Ales Fest. Gravity. Dark tangy old ale. Scarlet hued. Leads with the dark malt and finishes even darker. A splendid balance of sweet and bitter, both hovering like shimmering dragonflies, but never settling on either scale. Increasingly pleasant at the end of the festival with the band playing good stuff and chatting with good company.

rauchbier (3868) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2002
Bottled. Almost black-red in colour, moderate head and plenty of condition. Fruit and roast barley nose. Complex body with hints of licorice raisins toast and an underlying hop bitterness to prevent it from being too sweet. Becomes dry and winelike in the finish.
