mikeschuld (55) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Good caramel and malt aroma. Thick creamy head and very clear. Very nice roast and caramel flavors. A bit thin and leaves mouth dry at the finish, but I could drink this all night.

nephirem (68) - CROATIA - FEB 12, 2016
Pours a clear dark ruby color with short lasting slightly off-white head. Smell is faint, bread, yeast and caramel. Gets more intense as it warms up a bit. Thin body with medium carbonation. Watery texture. Taste is bittersweet. Aroma of malts, yeast, bread, caramel, toffee. Dry finish. Overall, a bit too thin and watery. Aroma doesn’t come through strong enough. Could be better.
