joeneugs (3207) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. It pours a deep ruby red color. Very dark with a fizzy khaki head. The aroma is bright and fruity with cherry, cherry syrup, rich breadiness, light raisin and molasses. The flavor is thick with rich dark fruit and bread. Cherry and raisin maltiness stand out with little if any hop character. Clean and well balanced flavors. Very satisfying.

Bork (139) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Full, heavy beer loaded with sweet fruits like cherry and raisin and finished with chocolatey malts. Very rich and filling. Not a big fan of the style and may be treating this brew unfairly.

brianza_ale (88) - ITALY - JUN 18, 2014
On tap @ BockAle. Fairly dark, but a bit clear, brown colour with ruby reflexes; nice quite lasting and slighlty tanned head. From what I remember has malty, sweet, dark fruit aroma. Malts, dried fruits, sweet (minimal hops), caramel, cherry/cake taste. Medium low carbonation, typical sticky texture, a bit of spices and a smaall hint of bitter at the end to balance. Well hidden alcohol. Extremly drinkable, a very nice german dark beer
