A dark rich beer that shows glints of red. The taste is clean, slightly sharp with a hint of blackcurrant.

Tumman ruskea, mutta punertava olut. Muodostaa päälleen valkoisen vaahdon. Tuoksu on marjainen, toffeinen ja paahtunut. Maussa on marjaisuutta ja paahtunutta mallasta. Jälkimaku on kuivan katkera. Keskiverto määrä hiilihappoja. Mukavan juotava ja maukas olut.

dogbomb (939) - ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep red/brown, with a nice red corona. Off-White fluffy head. A roasty nose, but a mouthful of chocolate-coffees mixed with mild blackcurrants. There’s a hint of a sprucey hop, and the finish is long, bitter and dry. Rich, complex and a real enjoyable experience.

lusikka (6184) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2012
500 ml bottle. BBE 07/2012.
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick, slightly creamy and natural white colour. Aroma of slightly toasted malts, floral hops and light citrus. Flavour of toasted malts, fruits, bread, strong floral hops and nuts. Medium bodied and probably the richest mouthfeel for such a low ABV beer. FInishes nutty and bitter. Very nice.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2012
On cask at brewers pride, ossett. Pours ruby with a white head. A smoky start which is very bitter, levels off to a smooth dark fruit finish. Smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2012
from le Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - clear reddish-brown beer under a solid creamy and persistent beige foam; nice lace; toasted aroma of biscuit and caramel; moderate malt backbone and a low carbonation; quite dry and bitter with a long earthy and cookie-like finish

Hermod (3129) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
50cl bottle from Bierzwerg. Poured dark amber with a lasting dirty white head. Hoppy, very fruity aroma with some caramel as well. Flavor is caramel, fudge-like candy notes as well as fresh fruity, hoppyness. Long lasting caramel finish, slightly bitter also. Medium bodied. Another great beer from this brewery.

MalcolmTucker (727) - SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with hints of red and a 1 finger head. Dark fruit, bready malt aroma. Rich dark fruits, toffee and great maltiness in the flavour. The finish begins with some bitter, citurs hops before rich fruit takes over again. This beer had great amount of flavour considering its relatively low abv.

laiti (5606) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2011
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 06/2012
Aroma is rather nice with fruity hops, bready malt and hints of vanilla. Flavour has bready malt, fruity hops, some vanilla and peanuts. Nutty, dry and leathery finish. Very nice for a 4,4% ABV beer.

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 16, 2011
First tasted this in the Three Judges, Glasgow in April 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin white head. Juicy date fruit in the long malty aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Complex dark malts deliver a rich maltloaf base with syrupy raisin fruit and caramel notes evident in the mouth. Slight prickle of hop resins give a short bitter bite to the aftertaste. Buisness as usual as strong malt returns in the fruity finish.
