PlutonowyMan (109) - POLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Strong head, beige. The aroma of sweet, malty, roasted plum, raspberry and a minimum of alcohol. The taste is slightly bitter, like aroma feel prunes, fried. After heating the bitterness is stronger, as well as alcohol. This is a minus, because it destroys the pleasure of tasting. At the end it’s just alcohol, too bad.

RafeAU (330) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2015
Brown-ruby pour, frothy lasting head. Tastes a bit like raspberry cordial - sweet and a little artificial. Some flaky sediment. This was okay, not bad, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

aenima (300) - Askim, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2015
Bready and some what caramelly aroma. The taste is similar but with raisins too. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Decent but more flavours and complexity would have been appreciated.

lello4ever (217) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Di colore ambra molto scuro con riflessi rossicci, ha una schiuma leggera e frizzantina. Il malto la domina sia nell’aroma che al palato, le note dolci, come quelle del caramello, sono quasi le uniche presenti. E’ piuttosto alcolica, ma fresca e dissetante. Approvata.

Dark, sweet, great tones of plums. This beer is great for cold winter nights.

TtV (208) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Deep dark brown with a reddish glow. Small off white top that fades quickly. Aroma not very special. Some sweetness and citrus recognizable. Taste is vaguely sweet, but there’s a peculiar spicy touch to it. Not very comforting. Alcohol is clearly present too.

thirstyrabbit (1362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle. Red amber body, medium head. Aroma has prunes and figs. Sweet caramelly taste with brown sugar. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side. Finish has fresh cucumber. The aroma was promising but the taste didn’t follow. So so.

didierlewallon (216) - ponferrada, SPAIN - JAN 15, 2015
Cerveza de color rojo oscuro con una cabeza de color blanca. Aroma a malta, levadura, frutas oscuras y especies. Sabor a malta tostada, caramelo, a fruta rojas, con un toque a lúpulo dulce. Buena cerveza.

jmgreenuk (5616) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 8, 2015
Tap at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Charles Quint Ruby @ 9%. Poured a clear dark copper colour with a frothy light tan head and some clingy lace. The aroma is yeast, wild red berry fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet with some sour and bitter notes too. The palate is yeast, over ripe red berry fruit, dry dusty mineral. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

On tap under the name "Charles Quint Ruby". Brown with medium yellow head. Mild, but watery sweet taste with touch of caramel followed by soft bitterness.
