COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name is derived for the Irish work Dubhain which means "black one" or "dark one". Dwan's signature beer is a strong, traditional, Irish extra stout with a classic balance of roasted barley and Galena hops. This beautiful and complex beer should be sipped to be appreciated fully.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2003
A black beer with a light creamy head. The aroma is smoked and sweet. The flavor is creamy and smoked from a good malt blend. It is very smooth for a smoked stout - great taste which makes it a good beer.
