3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber and a creamy, nice head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and dark fruits. The flavour is rich, full, smooth, malty, fruity and full with a nice bitterness, that develops further in the finish. A beer that is worthy of it’s name.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Clear amber coloured. Beige dense head. Spices (vanilla), nuts and malt in the aroma. Flavour is sweet and furity and feels rather creamy. Marzipan notes. Alcahol is very dominant in the short as well as the long run. Is quite onedimensional imo. Something about this beer, I dont like. Probably the immense alcahol taste.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Amber with a small but creamy head. Has a wonderful sweet aroma from toffee and butter. Flavor is sweet as well, some toffee, and turns into a salty and bitter finish. Really good...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Reddish amber coloured, mid-sized, quite firm off-white head, visible carbonation; rich fruity (dryed fruit) aroma, a tinge of molasses, a touch of port and caramel; full bodied, rich sweet flavour; long lasting, warming bitter-fruity finish, becoming dry towards the end with a developing aromatic-hoppy aftertaste; well hidden alcohol. A very rich, complex brew, quite easy quaffable, from a first-class brewery !

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Vinuous smell with some berry fruit thrown in. Dark brown colour with little head or lacing. The mouthfeel is very full with a buttery smoothness, blackberries, caramel and a wine like flavour. This beer is very good but belies its strength in that it's not a particularly warming beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Hazy, copper-ish amber colour with a beige and dense foamy head. Sweet and strong Bock-like cara-malty aroma with notes of caramel, subtle fruity notes and almost ethereally spices. Sweet flavour with a balancing bitterness, full bodied with a calm carbonation. Robust (cara-)malty, slightly toasted base with caramel/toffee, liquorice, subtle fruity elements and again almost ethereally spicy notes; sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented, delicately toasted finish with an inoffensive, but very present alcoholic burn in the warming sense. A hearty, very flavourful brew. 28.IX.09
