Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a slightly hazy amber golden with basically no head. Sweetish and somewhat unclean caramel aroma. Very full-bodied, hardly any carbonation, very sugary caramel with a somewhat unclean and not overly pleasant rubbery edge. Hardly any bitterness. 010509

fonefan (34188) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle 75cl.
Clear medium dark red brown color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, fruity - berry, apricot, wood, portwine, alcohol, overriped fruit - berry. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily and sticky, carbonation is soft to flat, finish feel is light to moderate alcoholic. Nice work Menno but i think some more aged will be good for this beer. [20090306]
