Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Pours a reddish brown, with a thin tan head that doesn't last. Aroma is mildly sweet and fruity. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Like others have said it tastes almost like waterdown dark rum, with hints of caramel, spices, and tree bark. There's really nothing remarkable here.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2003
A deep red beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is sweet and lightly fruity. The flavor is also sweet - actually very sweet which makes it too much halfway thru. The flavor contains notes of fruit and caramel.
