From tap. Pours hazy to murky brown with a lacing tan head. Yeasty and hoppy fruity aroma. Yeasty and hoppy with dry bitterness slowly emerging. Starts a bit on the sweet side though although that could come from the hops. Fruity and light phenolic finish. Nice and smooth yet also a bit rough.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2009
Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a medium tan head. The aroma has notes of over ripe fruit - leaning on sweetly rotten, fresh red currant, alcohol, and wet late harvested hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, wood, alcohol, medicin, and some herbs, leading to a dry and sweet finish where the herbal note lingers.

Draught at ølbaren, Copenhagen. Hazy red brown coloured with a medium sized off white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, liquorice and hay with notes of dried fruits. Sweet flavour of caramel and liquorice with notes of hops, alcohol and dried fruits and some metallic notes. Hoppy and warming alcoholic finish. Reminds me of a belgian dubbel.

Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s more or less clear in the class, copper-colored and topped by a finger-thick, dense, beige head. It’s meaty and malty on the nose, with clear indications that a sweet flavor is to expect. Some dried fruits and caramel too. It’s full-bodied and sweetish on the palate, and with caramel sweetness and dried fruits in the flavor, both initially and in the end. A nice doppelbock, although it differs a bit from the German tradition, tasteful and pleasant to drink. Wouldn’t mind to have it again some day. 100611
