330ml bottle - a deep ruby with a very thin white top, a rich aroma of cake fruits, cherries and raisins. A nice oily feel to this, malty in taste with a boozy kick afterwards, nice lingering bitterness. Niiiice. Lives up to its name.

Case (247) - GERMANY - APR 5, 2014
Dark brown pour, no head. Heavily malty aroma, plums, raisins, licorice. Taste is exceptionally fruity with sweet dark fruit. Very sweet with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. A bit like a Doppelbock on steroids. Full bodied, alcohol is hidden well. Nice!

Aroma of malts, dark fruits, raisins, plum, chocolate, molasses. Flavour is very sweet, dark fruits, molasses. Sticky mouthfeel, finishes dry. Love the aroma, but the sweetness is a bit too heavy for my taste.

Flasche 33cl, 5 Jahre nach Abfüllung abgelagert. Schaum steht wie eine Mauer. Wuchtiger Körper aus dunklen Früchten, Schokolade. Über allem schön ziselierter Hopfen. Der Hammer, spielt in eher in der Abt/Quadrupel Liga. Weltklasse!
