22 fl oz bottle, thanks to thewolf. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue and a tan head. Fruity hops and light liqourice note in the aroma. Flavour starts sweet and soon shows a solid caramel malt base before the hops kick in and give a light spiced liqourice fruity flavour. Medium malty sweet and light hoppy finish with a medium dryness. Ungstrup (37648) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 20, 2006
A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is very hoppy combined with strong notes of caramel: The flavor is very sweet, but at the same time extremely dry, with an end that contains light woody notes. A nice powerful Scotch Ale. anders37 (26650) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2011
