COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smokey, Chocolatey,...Orangey??? That’s right a smoked brown porter with orange zest. We start out with Maris Otter base malt and add cherry smoked malt, chocolate and honey malt giving a sweet smokey and chocolatey beer. Then the zest of many oranges is added after the boil to complement this beer’s smooth and complex flavors.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Draft. A dark red-brown beer with a thin head. The aroma has notes of nuts, caramel, malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of smoke, ashes, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry smokey finish where a slight note of iodine appears. Not the best smoked I’ve had.
