Advertised in the Ferdinand bar as Seven bullet stout, so I was suprised to see a copper coloured beer, with a small off white head being poured for me. Anyway, not a worry. Aroma is very floral, with some caramel. The body is very full and has great balance, with some spices, grapefruit and crystal malt. The finish is a little sweet, but enjoyable.

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2006
One of the highlights of my Czech beer experience, and the beer that changed my mind about the Vienna style. This beer is very dark red. It has a thick head that lacesthe glass and never completely fades. Aroma has caramel, malt, fruit, and hops. Malt flavor with tannic red wine; dry like wine with a similar mouthfeel. Excellent palate. Very good.

Pours a clear bronze with a tanned head. Sweet and malty with slight aromas of fruits. Quite dry with a dry finish. Medium to full bodied.

Hansen (6199) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2005
Amber colour, and a real fine big head. Not much aroma. Flavor is a bit funny, some czechish-notes, mixed with some acidity.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) A "Kräuterbier" - that is a beer presumably with added herbs. Clear, pretty, dark brown with a small, beige head. Lots of caramel and malt in the flavour. And the exact same characteristics are found in the flavour. No traces of the herbs though - and they don’t appear on the list of ingredients either. 280705

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2005
[At Křbenhavnske Řldage 2005] A hazy red beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with some notes of metal, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and a dry metallic end.
