hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle with a best before end date of 6/2009.Small semi-fizzy tan head with poor retention, one ring of lacing, very little carbonation, hazy, and a reddish hue. The aroma was malt, caramel, sweet, and dark fruits. Ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel and medium in body. This beer has a nice balance, easy to drink, worthy of a try, and I would drink this one again. Surprised at the overall low ratings.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 13, 2008
From a 750 ml bottle. Light garnet colored body with a medium tan colored head. Toffee and some plums come out in the initial nose. There is a nice brown sugar hint in here hiding behind the other lightly fruity smells. Bits of toffee mix with some coffee for the first taste. As one drinks more, you start to get iced tea and a waxy feeling finish.

Fukito (723) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 21, 2008
bottle, september 08. Clear, rubby copper color witha medium, creamy cremé head. Aroma is fruity with a caramel and banana touch. Some spice, quite restrained. Flavor is ripe fruit, bananas and a slight coffee touch. Slightly phenollic with a short earthy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, some chewy malt and easy drinking but with a sudden watery finish. Ok, easy drinking dubbel that could do with a bit more personality.
