From cask at Charlies. Pours clear and golden amber to brown. Light fruity nose. Flavour is sweet caramel malt with a light roasted note and a slowly increasing bitterness. Light roasted malt finish with a nice complimentary bitterness to break the sweetness. Ungstrup (38138) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2003
This beer has a fantastic amber color and a good head, though it disappears fast. The aroma is slightly fruity. And the flavor is fantastic with hints of oranges and a slight sweetness ending of with a fantastic bitterness from a great sort of hop. Nothing less than a fantastic beer. joergen (28720) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2005

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark beer. Lots of malt and chocolate but then it’s followed by bitter coffee which jars. Just a bit too much like hard work.
