Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of weird notes of fish as well as lighter notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of dusty hops, caramel, malt, and bread, leading to a weird fishy dry finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

opened this 12oz bottle, then went to get my glass. OOPS, foam over. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is roasty dark malt-cocoa/molasses. Taste is Sour cherry, roasty dark malt-cocoa/molasses, earthy hops. Lively carbonation for the style. Dont think they were trying for a chocolate covered cherry...
