Ungstrup (35711) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and prunes. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and prunes, leading to a dry finish where the prune note lingers. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottled (thanks Bov!). Deep rubyish brown/close to black colour, mediumsized brown creamy head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, slightly roasted malts and some spicyness. Flavour is smoked wood, some caramel malts and yeast. A mild, but quite wellbalanced brew.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a rough beige head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body with plenty of roasted malts and dried fruit - even an oaky touch. A little low in carbonation and the bitterness is subdued. Quite lovely. 220808

Tasting at Bruces pad. Thanks to Bruce for this one. Opaque dark beer, good pale tan head. Softish airy palate with light carbonation. Airy - creamy dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Gets papery in th mid. Light dry finish. One dimensional and a touch papery.

Courtesy of Philippe (Bov)
Black color; big head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, hop, very light liquorice and yeast. Medium mouthfeel, quite dry; aggressive roasted malt flavor, too much for my taste; some malt and caramel too. The final is too dry and too bitter. Not bad.
