Pours a really nice ruby-tinged brown, just like that raspberry syrup at IHOP. Well balanced. These guys are a great complement to Amsterdam's beer scene.

Nothing wrong with this one but also nothing that realy stands out. Nice head, good carbination and flavor of burned malt and caramel. Not too sweet. A bit one dimensional. Decent bock.
