COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2003
A black beer with next to no head. The aroma is slightly sweet - boring for a stout. The flavor is a soft sweet, slightly roasted flavor with a little smoke in the aftertaste, but no bitterness. Its thin for a stout, but all in all an OK beer.
