KajII (779) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a semi-transparent medium brown with an orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) cream colored frothy head that dissipated quickly to a small amount of residue which produced some poor lacing. The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, caramel, dark fruit (cherries and plums) and also had a mild nuttiness to it. The taste was lightly sweet with a note of toffee early on and then had a nice bold maltiness come on board with notes of caramel, dark fruit and an ever so mild taste of alcohol. The flavor hung around for only a short while with a sweet fruity taste that was left to fade away rather quickly. Mouthfeel was just above light in body and had a kind of watery texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall a brew that was quite easy to drink and had a nice malty fruity flavor...

brianza_ale (75) - 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

WillemsUrenkel (435) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
0,5 l bottle with a good looking label art design. A very dark and clear amber in the glass. Fine small head. Malt and coffie on the noise. Starts dry dark malty, with licorice and coffie, bready, not so sweet as expected. Hints of caramell in the background. Low carbonated, alcoholic warming. Nice one.

Thebullshornbar (72) - Florida, USA - APR 16, 2014
This beer shows up with quite a bit of spice accented with hits of dark dried fruit. Cinnamon nutmeg and dried fig all come to mind while the beer finished clean with a light but present herbacious hop bitterness.
