downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 Bottle from Landbierparadies, Nurnberg. Deep chestnut colour with a big, frothy off-white head. Spicy cinnamon and caramel aroma. Light mouth feel with some chocolate malt and a decent dry finish. [3.1] Good. Second tasting - from the barrel at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardeners, Lambeth 16/5/08. This had far more depth of aroma and flavour, with the spice more prominent, some earthy bitterness and a great dry finish. Excellent [3.7].

Ernest (6149) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber to medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, molasses), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of earth/peat, brown sugar, toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Very neat brew...aroma is kinda like a Scotch ale, very peaty and richly malted. Doesn’t drink as richly as it smells, but it’s balanced well. Not far from 4+ status.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Draft at Franconian beer festival and there described as a dunkles vollbier. Dark red-brown, short-lived but nice tan head. Full-on malt aroma is very friendly. Quaffable, very nice mouthfeel. Good pumpernickel raisin bread flavors. Dry finish, almost too dry but makes it more moreish. Very nice.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Mahagony color with creamy peige head. Sweetish, toffeish, toasty, nutty, caramelly and a bit buttery aroma. Toffeish, toasty and nutty flavor with some buttery notes. OK, would be better with less butter.

EithCubes (4724) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle by 03.10.2012. Some nutty, earthy tones, maybe some chocolate/mocha in the otherwise weak, sweet nose. Dingy ruby-brown body with a rocky, creamy tan head. Taste is sweet, some caramel but much more toasty toffee and earth, nuts. faint fruit. Subtle scratchy bitterness, watery body, fun to take at a high speed.

jfb (3683) - GERMANY - AUG 13, 2010
(bottle) pours a clear dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy butterscotch and toffee, with some very light hints of toasted malts and gingerbread spice. flavour is the same, quite heavy on the butter, but somehow fittingly so, with some heavy grainy notes and a hint of chocolate. medium body and carbonation.
