Bottle. Poured no head, but this could have been my fault. Otherwise a lovely deep ruby with some floating sediment. Smells like dirty socks. The flavour improves on this, but is still a little sharp and a little soupy with an astringent finish. Complex, but on balance not really worth it.

[33 cl bottle, Poggio] Deep red, slightly opaque body. Good off-white head. Licorice, caramel and roasted grain in the nose. Taste is fruity and sweet, with raisins and nuts. Dry, slightly yeasty finish. Medium bodied. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2006
Sweet yeast/malt aroma with notes of dried spice. Clear red/brown with a huge, lasting head, that left lots of lace. Very full, roasted malts, raisins, prunes and hints of nuts in the aftertaste. Easily drinkable and I love the stories about Charles Quint adt the mug :)

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
bottle. clear copper-red with a medium white head. aroma has loads of rye bread, caramel, and nuts. malty bread flavour is dominant...mostly sweet and yeasty. it’s straightforward for the most part. drinkable yet lacking depth past the sweet bread.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 26, 2005
Not as good as I expected. It is good, and dark. But it was not so alcoholic in taste as I expected. It was nice after all.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2005
Bottle shared with jerc at Smokeless Joe. Hazy amber-brown with a medium tan head. Mild but well blended aroma of brown sugar, cherry and warm alcohol. Sweet, sugary flavour, quite warm, leading to a dry finish. Pretty nice stuff.
