MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2009
(bottle) Dark ruby coloured hue with a thick beige foamy head. Sweet and moderately roasted malty aroma with notes of berries, chocolate and vanilla. Sweet and slightly burnt bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Moderately roasted malty taste with a tinge of caramel and chocolate; sweet and burnt bitter finish with a subtle acidic note, which I cannot explain as “vinous” (11.VIII.09).

33cl bottle. Deep, opaque ruby with a large, mostly disappearing tan head leaving a scattered lacing. Roasted malts, hints of chocolate and fruity berry aromas. Dry on the palate with woody, roasted malt flavours with a lasting dry bitterness and a chocolate aftertaste. Medium body, medium carbonation and a slight alcoholic warming sensation.

Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2009
An almost black colored beer, with a firm thick beige head. The aroma of sweet malts with coffee and dark fruits. The taste is sweet, like vanilla with some roasted malt and dark fruits. It’s a little syrupy. The aftertaste is bittersweet.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2008
[Shared at WLV tasting 4/5/08] Pours murky brown with a thin head. My notes say, and I quote, "feet smell" and a "6" for aroma... so yea I guess feet smell like a 6. Flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, brown sugar and a touch of hops. Average body/palate slightly thin.
