COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Moravius (605) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2013
Flasche (33 cl). - Tiefes Rotbraun. Schwere, dunkle Malzsüße, ergänzt durch üppige dunkle Frucht (Kirsche, Sultaninen). Noten von Likör, Bitterschokolade, Nüssen, Holz. Sahniges Mundgefühl; schwer aber nicht klebrig. Im Abgang eine ungewöhnliche, erdige, holzige Herbe, die an einen deutschen Doppelbock erinnert. - Großartiges Bier, das ich wegen seiner reichen Fruchtigkeit einem Doppelbock vorziehe.

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
330ml bottle. Wow. That’s how I’ll start this. Pours a cloudy dark chestnut brown with some sediement floaters, and a good sized creamy beige head. Aromas of raisin, dates, brown sugar, molasses, and dark bread. The taste is sweet, with black licorice, molasses, prunes, a light menthol note, alcohol, and dark rye bread. Excellent.

juanenka (252) - valladolid, SPAIN - OCT 27, 2013
Botella. Aroma dulce con notas de frutos secos, algo de levadura, algo de café. En boca perfecto equilibrio entre roasted malts, levaduras y dulzor con un final ligeramente amargo y dulce largo y complejo. Una agradable sorpresa

StoutHead (715) - DENMARK - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear red with a huge head, and despite my careful pour it had a LOT of sediment in it. Aroma is of malt, various fruits, molasses and a hint of smoke. Taste is of sweet malts, lots of different fruits, spices and honey. Starts out sweet and has a long sweet aftertaste too. A hint of bitterness and tartness in there too. Very complex and very enjoyable to drink. Fantastic.

MarcoDL (2395) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2013 One of the richest and most complex beers I ever had. Taste is very versatile and develops a few seconds long after you sip. It has fruits, spices, chocolate and special malts. Brilliant beer.

From a 33 cl bottle enjoyed at the beach in Avon NC. Pours a cloudy brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with a hint of banana. Highly effervescent mouthfeel. Creamy texture. Hits of red fruit. Complex and tasty.

olsvammel (3578) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Bottle from a bottle shop in Belgium, bought in 2011. Fruity smell, lots of different kind of berries, cherries, raisins etc. Very high carbonation, way to high for my taste. It hid the flavours at first so I had to roll the glass for a while to get a decent level. After that I got the same fruity taste with cherries, almonds, some sweetness. Very nice beer.
