Ungstrup (38248) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2003
The color is black with a fine light brown head. The flavor is licorice, slightly smoked, and sweet. The flavor is very sweet and slighty smoked. A good Guinness but too soft for my liking of a stout.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear, dark brown with a tint of red and a creamy, beige head. Light tartness from the burned malt in the aroma. Quite full-bodied, fruity, vinous with very burned - almost coffeeish - malt accents and a distinct, malt bitter finish. 120108
