Another chance to catch on Half Acre while dropped in to Maria’s Community Bar. On draft, and on Monday’s it’s $5! Deal me in! Solid black of course, but with a thin, tan head. Smell starts with coffee and black licorice, which can be a little out of my comfort zone. Taste, though, is silky and oily at the same time. A lower bubble level helps bring in the impression of Kahlua with vanilla, as the anise on the nose is not found on the tongue. Still potent, but oddly not as forceful with the alcohol as the Chairman I just has was. Despite the potential for harsh roastiness, this beer is very very mellow. May not have all the bells and whistles as a Dark Lord, and you may still only be get bottles one day a year, but by George, you can find some on tap afterwards/

Ungstrup (32903) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2016
Draft. A black beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, alcohol, and dark chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, and alcohol, leading to a dry, alcoholic, and roasted finish.
