Very nice, deep brown color. Amazing aroma, due to the fact that this beer is barrel aged. Good job Van Den Bossche brewery. Cheers

Ungstrup (30015) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2015
Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has has very strong notes of wine, fruits, and alcohol, as well as medium notes of roasted malt - crazy, but maybe over the top? The flavor is very sweet with notes of prunes, alcohol, oranges, wine, wood, dark chocolate, and roasted malt, leading to a dry roasted finish. Crazy.
