DSG (6534) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Re-rate 10/2/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks troubles. Dark amber to brown. Malt, chocolate and oxidation in the nose. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, some fruitiness, a bit of chocolate, light acidity and a bit of oxidation. 5/3/6/3/12=2.9

Bottle sample at a tasting. 6.66% Thanks bierkoning for getting me this one! Pretty color of red-amber with a huge beige head. Aroma of lots of malt, some figs and raisin notes and some yeast. Sweet malty flavor with some butter, some fruitiness and a long bitter finish with some spicy hops. Medium-bodied. As I drink more of it the hops get more dominant over the not-too-great maltiness and I seem to like it better. 7/4/7/3/14=3.5

Clear amber red body with a rocky head that hung around for a while and left clumps of lacing. In the taste there is caramel and some burnt notes, a little sweet, medium body, hints of raisins and in the aroma I pick up some lemon.

ggaughan (100) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle picked up at the brewery store from a Sep 2008 visit with my brother. The beer poured a brilliantly clear, off white head, massive and fluffy. The aroma was slightly citrus and a nice malt tone as well. The taste is very pleasing. Nice toasted character and some caramel notes and also a good bitterness on the tongue. Definitely worth picking up if you can find.

Bottle, 6.66%. Weak malty and yeasty aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour has some rough bitterness and graininess. There is also some yeast. Good maltiness. Quite citric, a bit like too much aroma hop was used.
