UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 Bright red-tinged brown; sweet nutty aroma, some raisin bread. Sweet bready notes, brown sugar. Sweet finish. Straightforward and somewhat light. Rerate in May ’06 yields a similar sentiment and a slight reduction in score due to lower appearance score (no head).

Clear deep brown with milk chocolate aroma and earthy overtones. Sweet malts with Nutella and chocolate, but not much hops. Good body but would be better with more floral hops added. Thanks to Piscator.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 2012-07-08. Dark mahogany brown body witha modest beige head. 3+ Flavour is nicely malty, sweet, nutty toasty malt accents. Just enough bitterness to balance it. Mildly nutty toasty malt aroma. Average plus to medium bodied palate. 3+ pretty solid take on the style. 7/4/7/3/15-16 - 3.6 Bottle shared by Radek
2007-12-24. Very dark brown body with a small tan head. (3+) Muted aroma of malt, lightly toasty. Similar flavour with light nutty accents, toasty malt and moderate caramel. Average palate. A quaffable but unremarkable take on the style. 6/3/6+/3/12 - 3.0 Bottle, source not recorded.

Dark brown beer with a fine-grained tan head. Wonderfully rich smell of roasted almonds, vanilla, and faint chocolate. Flavour is similar, with sweet nuttiness and chocolate. Has a nice slightly bitter coffee finish and a rich creamy body. This is another very good beer from this brewery.

Bottle - Caramel malts and nutty note. Dark copper with a rich beige head. Light malty notes, caramel and slight nutty notes. A decent beer for sure, but nothing particularly interesting.
