Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Lambister (348) - FINLAND - JUL 10, 2015
50 cl bottle from monopoly. Dark brown red, clear beer with a light brownish head. Malty to smoky character with some light sweet malt and toffee notes. Not my style, maybe a bit too heavily carbonated.

McWorta (1136) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 5, 2015
Dark red-brown colour with a small-medium pillowy beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, bread, nuts, toast and light chocolate, earthy tones develop. Softly carbonated, round and smooth texture, medium-full bodied. Bready-toast malt sweetness up front for a good while leading into a light dry nut bitterness. Medium bit dry finish.

Fukito (976) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 19, 2015
Nice clear copper/ brown with some golde hues and a creamy medium lasting beige head. Aroma is nice nuttiness with some coffee notes. Flavor is creamy nuttiness with some light toffee/ caramel notes and a gentle bittersweet aftertaste, fantastic balance. Medium palate, rich and creamy yet still very drinkable. Overall very well rounded, enjoyable and tasty
