Erzengel (5526) - Wuppertal, - MAY 28, 2012
Angenehmer, sauer-dunkler-dickflüssiger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süß-malzig, leicht sauer, dabei sehr vollmundig. Schmeckt nach mehr als die 4,8%. Der Hauptteil ist lang anhalötend, voll, dunkel-dickflüssig und angenehm leicht säuerlich mit toller Holznote. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine dunkle, (röstmalzige) Holznote, dabei eine angenehm süßliche Säure. --> sehr interessantes Bier!

AdamChandler (3590) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2014
small bottle bought in belgium. gushed and I lost 1/3 of the bottle. huge head, thick bubbles that left a nice lacing. Totally an oud bruin in appearance. dark brown with red hues. The nose is pretty week, I get red grapes, some other tropical fruits and malt vinegar. Taste is also pretty weak. thin cherry soda, cherry cola, kiwi and pineapple with very little else going on but it is easy drinking.

tom10101 (3906) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Dark ruby red with a huge slowly diminishing beige head. Aroma is of balsamic vinegar, oak, caramel and light red fruits. Taste is of caramel, vinegar, light ketchup, light oak, ketchup and hints of red fruits. Thin body. Watery. Moderate carbonation. Caramel and oak finish. Not really complex. Too much vinegar and too much caramel. Weak.
