12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and deep amber, golden, with a lacing light orange head. Wood hops aroma, a bit like wet wood. Flavour is smooth and dry hoppy yet with a nice chocolate smoothness and mild sweetness followed by a light liqourice sharpness and solid bitterness into the finish. Extremely flavourful, almost overempowering. Ungstrup (38138) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 [Vintage 2000, sampled October 2004] A deep red-brown beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with loads of overripe fruits as well as slight hints of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, wood, and overripe fruit. This beer has really aged well - and definately improves by aging. [Vintage 2003 sampled September 2004] A hazy red beer with a nice creamy orange-brown head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy which also includes notes of hop-oils and grass. The flavor is sweet is quite spicy and contains notes of berries, prunes, and fruit in the start, which in the latter part is being overtaken by roasted almost smoked notes, to give it a dry end.

Dark red colour. The head is off-white. Aroma of malt molasses and bitter chocolate. Malty and a little sweet flavor. Lots of chocolate and caramel aswell. Some bitter hops in the aftertaste. Very warming and nice beer.

Bottled (Bottled 2006). Murky reddish brown colour with a long lasting yellowish beige creamy head, leaves nice lace. Aroma is nuts, plum, raisins, caramel malts, slight alcohol and a nice touch of hops. Flavour is roasted coffee, malts, some chocolate, bittering hops and slightly spicy. A very nicely warming brew, that is enormously wellbalanced. Leaves a nice roasted and hoppy aftertaste. Travlr (25500) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2013
