Ein uriges Dunkel mit Brautradition, das auch vielen Gästen der Region ans Herz gewachsen ist. Vollmundig, würzig, extraktreich - ein Landbier im besten Sinn!

Beautiful clear (horse)chestnut beer; slightly irregular yellowish-cream head, leaving little, fine lace. Very vague pine nose - as a distant pineforest in the coastal area. Bit of cookie malt, all very vague. Just great flavour - again a little pine, some spices, sandlewood. bitterish - hops and quite woody in character, resinous, Angostura, and raw pipe tobacco. This is truly gorgeous, and very difficult to describe; layered as an onion in depths (plural). Refreshing - unbelievable for a beer with such depths, usually this kind of aroma’s come from high-alcohol beers, barrel aged for unreasonable lengths. Long bitterish-aromatic aftertaste. Nat & Jim, I really see why you love this stuff, thanks for sharing. Superb, complex beer, defying description.

Quite nice beer. Sweet malty and fresh sourness in both the aroma and the flavour. Very mild mouthfeel - round and nice.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 10, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2005 A clear red beer with a fine head. The aroma is sweet roasted bread - quite an inviting aroma. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted bread and hints of smoke. The mouthfeel is very soft. Quite a good beer.

Thank you Pivo for reminding me of this and to the one that found the info to put it in the database. Found this at little market down the street from where my kids lived in Hahnbach and made a point of getting it each time after finding how good it was. Had previously made the mistake of giving swingtop bottle to local homebrewing friend prior to getting what I needed from the name, etc. Very good bier, Yes, there's and undercurrent of smokiness in the malt - not like a rauchbier, more subtle, but blending with the herbal hops it is just remarkable. Want more NOW!

Gorgeous in the glass. An earthy amber color and pock marked off white foam. A very earthy caramel with toasty edges. Tobacco spicyness. This is great! Opens up some more as it warms. More earthy aromas -- potting soil. You can feel the mineral content in your gut! Vielen dank, pivo und yogi!

Complex. Malty. Very pleasant smoked flavour. Creamy texture. Long slightly bitter finish. What a perfectly balanced German brew.

DanielBrown (3819) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2003
Bottle. Roasted chestnut colour, with a loose, tan head. This has a smoked taste, which fades into a watery bitterness. It also definitely has a tangy, metallic crispness. This beer seems to have more in common with a Vienna or Oktoberfest, than with the only Keller bier I have tried, and is fizzier than the latter. It is definitely an unusual one.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 RERATE: Becoming more and more impressed with the quality, sophistication and versatility of this beer. An impeccable balance and great flavors. Enjoyable on its own or with food. Bumping up my rating on this. Should be a top 50 if you ask me. Old rating: This one surprised me. Just a great find. Light toasted nose, rich amber color, low tight head. Roasted malt body with a very distinct metallic texture and crisp edges. Nearly a smoke beer. Lingering hop bitter. This would go great with a pizza or cheese plate.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2004 Great sound ! Kind of sulphury nose, malt too. Nice amber color, fizzy head and also fizzy carbonation. Smoked and roasted taste, with hoppy intervalls. Great.
