omhper (19976) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2004
Bottled. Ruby colour, coarse head. Aroma of solvent and plastics. Sweetish with notes of almond. Hard, clean malt profile. Artificial lacquer-like finish. has dropped from a wonderful beer to near undrinkable liquid in a few years :-( Could this have something to do with the new owners?

On Tap at some tiny dive of an Irish pub near the Dam square, Amsterdam. Clear dark brown beer, tiny white head. Light dry palate. Creamy malt, some ninerals. Crisp finish. That’s about it - depressingly average.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2003
Dark amber color; generous, frothy head. Average aroma: malt, roasted malt, caramel. Not bad flavor, with roasted malts and nuts, but too thin, and short final.
