MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
(bottle, from bierkoning) Clear, ruby colour with a mid-sized, slowly lacing beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty aroma with caramel, cacao and subtle fruity notes. Sweet flavour, medium to full body, smooth carbonation. Moderately roasted malty taste with caramel and soft underlying fruity notes; sweet, malty, slightly alcoholic finish with faint bittering hops. Tastes like an average dark Bock.

from crackedkettle.com - cloudy dark reddish-amber with no foam remaining; sweet malty nose with lot of caramel and red fruits, a touch of candi sugar too; very soft palate, sweet and medium-bodied; finishes moderately dry and quite bitter; the aftertaste is a bit bubblegum-like with notes of figs

Bottled. Clear amber coloured. Rich beige head, lacings. The aroma is that of fruits and malt. The flavour is malty with a sweet taste to it.

pivnizub (9400) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2006
Bottle (traded with joss) Clear amber coloured, small foamy layer; fruity (ripe berries), sugary aroma with a touch of toasted malt and molasses; stronger sweet flavour, sticky MF; ripe fruit in the finish with a very small bitterness in the aftertaste. Not really bad, but rather one-dimensional......................

ALLOVATE (2650) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2006
From the bottle at just on cool, and into a shallow chalice. Deep, ruby red body with a cappuccino-style, frothy beige head that left some signature lacing down the glass. Appeared bright but a quick inspection in the lights showed this had a bad case of the floaties - like pureed fruit. Thick, layered and sweet, vinous nose holding a lot of fruit, spice and medicinal alcohol beyond its modest ABV. Ripe plums and cherries, top-soil and dust and just a little chocolate fill out and are quite pronounced. Very pleasant. In the mouth it is woody and dry, slightly pasty and dusty like the nose. Body is quite light, unexpected from the full-throttle aroma, but it is soft and creamy. Cocoa, shredded dark chocolate and almonds upfront, almonds also in the finish. Feint metallic note in back with some driftwood and merlot-wine dryness. Dry, woody, vinous finish that shows just a little smoke and burnt fruit. This wasn’t too bad at all. Alarmingly light in body, but otherwise quite a tasty after-dinner beer. (30cL, BBE 06/07, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2006
Amber, reddish colour with a small thin off white head. Malty, toffee sweet aroma with an alcohol note. Malty and caramel sweet flavor with a light floral note and a hoppy bitter finish.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from the Rake, se1. I asked for something dark and spicey - was handed this little wonder. Raisin in colour with a flat head. Nose of black cherries, brown sugar and raisins. Sweet-ish taste of raisins, plums and spiced rum. Malty texture, slightly bitter finish. Damn fine beer. I’ll be seeking this one out again.
