Bottled. Dark reddish brown, beige huge creamy head. Sweet caramellish malty aroma with a bit bitterness too. Strong bitter hoppy flavour along with malty hints. Bitterness dominating all the way through Biting carbonation.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2005
A deep red beer with a nice orange-brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of black currant, cowberries, wood, and grapes. The flavor is sweet and very berry-like again black currant and cowberries, but also caramel and wood.

Sigmund (5551) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Deep copper coloured, very good off-white head. Nice aroma of dark fruits, leather, oak and caramel malts. Flavour is malty sweet with a certain alcoholic burn, but not unpleasant. Some raisin notes too. Decent hops and a peppery finish. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2011 Bottled. A dark brown coloured beer with a decent sized and lasting white head. The aroma is malty with toffee and caramel. The taste is also very malty with berry fruit notes and noticeable alcohol. Not the greatest depth but still a decent beer. Score 3.4

Maybe I just had a bad bottle, but mine tasted much like an old shoe. Perhaps I should give it another try and re-rate.

Outstanding. This is a wonderful example of the style. Very complex but balanced flavor invites you to keep sipping. This would make an excellent session ale.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Brown ale with a huge head. Very malty smell that led to a somewhat sweet taste. Hops are evident, though this is a really mellow beer. A great beer. Could be a good session beer.
