Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Dark brown color with beige foam. Very balanced, slightly sweet aroma. Profiles are highlighted by raisins and coffee. High carbonation. In the mouth, hints of coffee, chocolate and some raisins. Very tasty. Medium bitterness.

ABS (478) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolets BU. Annoying, blue foil covers the cap. Pours medium to dark brown. Lots of bubbly, white head. Takes some time to settle. Malt, metal, caramel, wort scent. Some candy. Low on carbonation. A bit below medium body, surprisingly. Mouth feel reminds me of a dunkler bock. Sweet, some sourness and some bitterness. A bit unripe cherry, malt, caramel, some metal, some pear aroma. Not a favourite.

No matter how I poured this, got a large billowing offwhite/light tannish head. Body is brown. Initial sip was very carbonated and prickly on the tongue. Set aside for a few moments as thinking it was served too cold. Tasting raisins, but also a bit sweet. A bit of sour in there. Tasting the chocolate malt as it warms. It is a bit boozy. Definitely better as it warms a bit. Can feel the alcohol on it. Was expecting something a bit more. Good beer, but for the price there are others I would go to instead. Glad I tried it but will move on.

mikkos (197) - FINLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Dark ruby with a huge head. Aroma of sweet sweet malts and yeasts with a bit darker tones. Taste is a bit stingy at first, maybe the beer was too cold. Gets better after a while but still doesnt quite deliver. Yeasts, dark malts, sweet. Mouthfeel is rather light. Smooth finish. Good beer, but I was expecting just a bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
