Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
Draft at the Carlsbad location. A black beer with a red shine under a tan head. The aroma is very malty combined with notes of bread and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with a light acidic edge from the roasted malt, since it is rather roated, and has a dry, bitter, and roasted finish. 28 IBU’s. MIne was stated at 4.4% ABV.

On tap at Carlsbad location. Color of dark brown with a light chocolate head. Aroma of chalky malt, roasted malt and cocoa. Flavor was chalky, roasted and cocoa. Fairly standard for the style, lacking anything special. Palate was a bit watery. Just ok.

AbeerWolf (27) - USA - JAN 30, 2008
Smooth, rich flavor that tapers off after the first couple of sips. Aroma is slightly hoppy with the chocolate malts coming through after. Body is lively but not overwhelming. Good overall beer that is perfect for a warm San Diego evening.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2007
A roasty chocolate malt aroma. Definite sweetenss comes through in the nose. The beer is black with a tan head. It looks a little muddy and crude as well. Flavor is intensely roasty, nutty, and chocolatey. It finishes pretty crisp with a lingering coffee flavor.
