33 cl bottle from de bierhal in Eine. Dark brown with large off-white head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Strong taste of roasted malts, chocolate and a little too boozy. Sorry just don’t like this one. *

Had for the first time in a Roman cellar in Brugge Belgium. Wonderful beer - absolutely perfect for time and place. Wish I could get it in the states. Probably my best beer experience in Europe.

teddybeer (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. Brown colour with a good initial formation of a beige head but that quickly diminishes. Aroma is toasty with notes of sugar and nuts. Flavor has toated malts, nuts, dry fruits, belgian yeast, brown sugar, caramel notes. The final is alcoholic with a sweet aftertaste with an average duration.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2013
When pouring, instantly you notice the dark color, but hold it against a lightbulb and you will find it’s true ruby-red color. It smells a bit vanilla, caramel like, but it has a flat taste and also a bit bitter. The aftertaste is slightly sweet. Gelijk met het inschenken zie je de donkere kleur, maar in het licht is deze robijnrood Het heeft een zoet vanille caramelachtig aroma, maar de smaak is iets platter en bitter. De nasmaak is wel in de verte iets zoetig.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2012
The aroma is malty, very sweet, hot spiced wine and cherries. The small beige head is fizzy and disappears fast, the body is dark red. A strong malty taste, light bitter and very soft metallic in the finish. The body is medium strong, very creamy with a lively carbonation.

Insgesamt ein Brune, dass gut im Abgang ist, aber im Antrunk deutliche Schwächen aufweist. Test vom 20.4.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,10,12,12,10 - 10,15
