In bottiglia. Aroma di tostato persistente, nocciola, frutta secca, leggero affumicato. Al palato morbida, rotonda con sentori di tostato, cioccolato, nocciola e un amaro dato dal malto che ben bilancia la birra. Ben fatta.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a rough beige head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body with plenty of roasted malts and dried fruit - even an oaky touch. A little low in carbonation and the bitterness is subdued. Quite lovely. 220808

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and prunes. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and prunes, leading to a dry finish where the prune note lingers. Thanks yespr for sharing.

ogivlado (5900) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottled 330ml. -Trade with Allen (thanks Julian!). Pitch black coloured, medium sized brown head, malty chocolate nose. Roasted malt, chocolate and prunes and other dried fruits but a bit too sweet. Second Appenzeller beer in last several weeks, and this one is few light years better than Quöllfrisch Hell.

Bottle. Pitch black beer with a strong wispy light brown head. The aroma is sweetly roasted with a gentle hint of bitterness. The flavour is mildly malty and roasted coffee. Overall a nice malty roasted dark beer.
