Ungstrup (38141) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2003
A black beer with next to no head. The aroma is slightly sweet - boring for a stout. The flavor is a soft sweet, slightly roasted flavor with a little smoke in the aftertaste, but no bitterness. Its thin for a stout, but all in all an OK beer.
