Cloudy brown color with tones of red, rapidly fading beige head with large bubbles. Malty, fruity nose, lightly roasted, sour notes. Roasted malt taste, hints of caramel and earthy hops. Medium body, lively carbonation, watery texture. Not my favorite style.

Beautiful, dark brown, clear body with a head that is just slightly off white. The banana and clove notes that are expected are accompanied by some caramel and toast notes. The flavor is slightly sweet from the darker malts with the caramel providing a nice base for the yeast esters. Would like a touch more carbonation on this one or a more lively mouth feel. Finishes a little sweet with the caramel from the malt shinning through.

I’ve had this beer a few times before, but I can’t think of a better place in the world to rate this aside from Hong Kong. Aroma of raisins, roasted malt, prunes and tonnes of caramel. Medium-bodied; Strong rich caramel flavour at first with a lot of prune and raisin flavour coupled with some dry malt and a bit of bitterness from the roasted malt at the finish. Aftertaste shows a solid sweet flavour with a good amount of roasted malt and even more caramel and prunes to balance out the maltiness. Overall, a nice dunkles with a solid profile and a rich caramel sweetness. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased at Flavour in the United Centre in Admirality, Hong Kong on 21-June-2014 for HK$15,80 sampled in my hotel room here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong on 22-June-2014.

Near-black beer with a decent foamy head with a subtle chocolatey aroma. Flavour is chocolatey as well with a a touch of caramel and dark, slightly toasty malt flavours. Full-bodied and a light aftertaste make for a surprisingly refreshing beer.
