freretoc (441) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 23, 2014
Bu à le pression en 25cl, une couleur brune et pas de mousse, en bouche elle sent surtout le sucre, le sucre candy même à peine le malt, mais c’est vraiment trop trop trop écoeurant, au bout de deux gorgées je voulais la jeter !

Transfering data from personal beer file. I drank this beer a long time ago. I’ll update this rating if I have the chance to drink it again.

ferencmato (46) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle. Dark ruby-brown with huge beige head. Strong sweet and fruity aroma, some honey, caramel and hints of alcohol. Taste of raisins, caramel, honey. Dry roasty bitterness after a while, but well balanced. Smooth, low carbo. Nice warm feel in throat as a bonus. Definitely not a summer beer, this was made for cold winter evenings.

BREWMUSKCLES (2154) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2013
nice and fruity, bright with caramel. shortly after it does become a bit cloying. two stage sweet and then sweet with a bit of tart but not actually sour. easily satisfy then back off.

Shark_Pants (130) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2013
Dark brown, almost black pour. Aroma honeycomb, yeast, raisins, chocolate. Taste is sweet honey and malts. A lot of sweetness, not much dryness & bitterness to balance. Not too bad but I agree with the cold serving recommendation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1494) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with light white head. Aromas o raisins, figs, spice, and roasted malts. Flavors of rich chewy toffee, dark fruit, nutty brownies and light spice. Slight sweetly. Quite warm with alcohol on the tongue and aftertaste, but very nice.
