Ungstrup (29226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2010
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of hops, lemon, caramel, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, lemon, alcohol, caramel, and over ripe fruits. The alcohol leaves a burn on the palate and makes the body thick.

madmitch76 (14834) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2010
15th June 2010. Cask at Cask & Kitchen. Clear dark amber beer. Light carbonation providing a short lived bubbly tan head. Light crisp palate but has a prescense from the alcohol. Dark toffee malt supports some prickly hops. Piney, orange and a trace of pineapple and then some spice. Finishes with a warming dry alcoholic snap that also delivers more spicy fresh hop. Tingling spirity aftertaste. Decent but not a showstopper. I love big beers but I think this one would have benefitted a lot from being a mere 13% or 14%. A couple of years or more aging probably would not hurt either! I noticed a lot of unfinished glasses of this left around and managed to get fairly wrecked on them!
