Pyobon (900) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
(Bottle) Great looking beer, very dark but ruby red when held to the light, with good tan head. Pleasant aroma - red berries, toffee, raisins. Full body with creamy carbonation and some stickiness. Good, and different, taste - quite light and fruity like a soda at the start, but this quickly gets replaced by a dark toffee sweetness and by finally by burnt sugar bitter notes. Unusual and very pleasant.

adster (164) - HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2014
Gyorsan fejlődő, tömött habkoronájú és egészen mély vörös, inkább már fekete színű főzet. Illatában a pörkölt maláta jegyeit hordozza egy cseppnyi méz aromájával, mely ízében is fellelhető, csakúgy, mint az aszalt gyümölcsök és némi kékszőlő jelenléte.

generallee08 (621) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2014
It pours a very dark brown color that has coppery highlights. The body is nearly opaque and it forms a big tan foamy head that has very good retention. It also makes nice lacing on the glass. The aroma has sweet, fruity and spicy character with just a hint of hops. The flavor has a wonderful natural sweetness from the honey and malted barley. Dark sweet fruit notes of raisins, figs and plums mix with coriander, bitter orange peel and a touch of earthy yeast. Hop flavor is very mild and adds just a hint of bitterness. The alcohol adds a nice warming quality and it finishes slightly dry. Its palate is medium to full bodied with a smooth creamy texture that is tempered by its lively carbonation

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2014
D’un brun des plus foncés ayant une mousse mince, mais compacte et qui persiste en laissant une couche d’écume qui s’accumule ŕ la parois du verre. Ça sent le caramel, les herbes folles, les épices, les bananes et la crčme. C’est subtil tout ça mais ô combien agréable. Ça goűte les fruits secs, les dattes, les raisins avec des épices et de l’alcool qui termine en douceur, laissant derričre lui une traînée sucrée et acidulée, ou peut-ętre légčrement amčre. Plaisante ŕ boire. M.A. 060615 (1080-210514)
