Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2010
Draft. A deep red beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has strong notes of malt combined with medium notes of alcohol and caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, malt, and caramel. The alcohol warms the mouth and burns in the throat.

Starts with decent fullness and Belgian malty sweetness with some aged fruity complexity and doughy Belgian yeast along with some grassy noble hops. Has a slightly warming finish and some lingering bittersweetness.

Thick creamy mouthfeel. Dense caramelish and light spiced yeasty base flavour. Light sharpness from the alcohol and dense caramel flavours. Smooth finish yet with a vague burn. Slight sticky final texture.

On tap. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a firm and creamy beige head with good retention. Intensely sweet aroma with lots of caramel, wood, Sherry and alcohol. Very full-bodied again with woody notes and hints of Sherry. Extremely warming alcohol in the finish. Nice one. 060709

bhensonb (10813) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Tap at Sac Brew. Pours a dark orangey brown with a significant orange tinged beige head. Aromas of caramel and citrus? Full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor of sweetish roasted caramel, spice and citrus. There’s a pervading fruitiness that seems plummy. Almost seems to be a bit of canteloupe. Nice mouthfeel. A bit sweet, but not sticky. Finishes with a slightly balancing tartness, but dry it is not. Reminds of an aged strong ale in some aspects. Good experience.

The last of a keg at City Beer. Nose of kids medicine, lollipop, roast, brown sugar, dark fruit. Really nice old ale. Doesn’t have the complexity of some (kinda fixes on sweet) but very full and warming.
