Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, - AUG 22, 2009
Bottled. A slightly hazy dark golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of caramel, spices, and sweet malt. The flavor is very sweet and very malty, combined with notes of caramel and a bit of spices, leading to a dry finish.

ShivanDragon (1912) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
75 cl fles bij de Mitra te Leeuwarden, schenkt helder rood/bruin met schuimige licht kaki kraag. ziet er erg mooi uit in het glas. Aroma is zoet, caramel en wat aardse tonen. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, vol en romig, caramel smaken zijn redelijk bepalend en overheersend, gedroogd fruit, rozijnen, toffee, iets kruidigs (kaneel, kardemom), typische winterbier kruiden, graan, redelijk body, zachte afdronk en vrij lang.

Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of fonefan. It pours a clear, copper body under a minimal-sized off-white head. A bit weak on the nose, caramel-malty with a little fruityness. Not overly exciting, but ok. Sweet, caramel flavor with a little fruity sweetness and some bitterness. Medium to full body, some pleasant warmth. Slightly warming finish with caramel sweetness and some bitterness. Not my idea of a christmas beer, but a pleasant winter/autumn beer. 090822
