From 75 cL bottle. Pours deep ambe with no head. Aroma is soft raisin sweet, caramel malt and alcohol presence. Flavour is the same in a very mild blend, surprisingly mild given the abv of this. Very enjoyable mellow beer.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2005
An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and spices and herbs, but I can’t pick out the ingrediens. The flavor is sweet malty and very spicy, combined with notes of oranges, caramel, and hints of alcohol. The mouthfeel is quite carbonated.

Bottled. Dark amber colour, not much head. Plum, glue and alcohol in nose. Flavour is semiroasted, strongly caramellish and syrupy. Dark fruits and sugar also noteable. Wellbalanced and pleasant to drink.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 2008-05-18, corked bottle at Ølfestival 2008, Århus, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Dark chestnut ciolor. Very mature aroma, oxydized malt, but almost fruity too, sweet, candy-like. Good mouthfeel, with an interesting oxydized malt flavor and caramel; bitterness almost absent, warming alcohol; it can become cloying. Peculiar.

Cloudy dark brown color; creamy head. Strong aroma, with malt, caramel, toffee, some fruitness and light cork; it shows a primordial complexity. The body is thin in the beginning, quite simple flavor (basically caramel supported by some sweetness) and the final is too much biting (alcohol) with some off-flavors; it also has a very light sourness, quite rare in the Unibroue beers. Much better when warm.
I expected more.

Amber, with yeast in the glass. Nice creamy offwhite head. Some fruit in the aroma, and some nuts can be found as well. Malty and spicy flavor with fruity notes. Nice body.
