Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2010
Bottled - no wonder... A black beer with a huge very dark brown head. The aroma has notes of dusty hops, roasted malt, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and chocolate as well as lighter notes of grain and dusty hops, leading to a dry, bitter, and roasted finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue.
