Thanks to kappeldave123 for this beer. Dark caramel and toasted nut color with a thin brown head. Nose was dead on snack pack chocolate pudding (thanks Kagg!) with bready malts. Flavor of molasses and chocolate with a smooth soft finish.

Bottle. Dark brown colour with a beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet, roasted malty flavour with hints of coffee. Slighly dry and bitter finish. Medium bodied, smooth and easydrinking beer. I enjoyed it. Nothing special, but still a quite nice brew.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 bottle thanks to KAggie and zinister. First American to rate this. Yes! This poured dark brown with a cola-like texture. Smell was roasted malt, but had some funkiness to it that I couldn’t put a description to. Taste was of roasted malt and molasses. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin with a dry finish. Interesting. Definitely different.

Nice mid-tawny colour.The good off white head looked as if it would hang around for a while, but after my first swig it seemed to give up and died very quickly! The nose is quite rich and malty with more than a hint of spice, there are some nice floral hops at the back ...a big plus point. A fairly full bodied brew with a good malt presence, but well balanced by a distinctive hoppy bitterness, a crackin’ beer. This was bought by my wife (who constantly moans about the amount of beer I drink) at one of those continental markets that appear from time to time in a town near you!!!

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown reddish, clear. Medium thick creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt, bread and apple wine. Palate is medium thick slick, carbonation mouthful and smooth. Taste is rather malty, little bitter and dry as well, with some roastiness, grass and winey tartness in there also. Aftertaste is short with some hops flavors. Drinkable, a bit harsh at first. Average at best.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Straßenbahn. Clear, brown body with a rocky, off-white head. Lasting and lacy. Malt comes through big in the nose - big black sun tea presence. Some faint raisin notes. Bigger raisin in the flavor, actually all I can taste, but not in a bad way. Light-medium body. Malt forward with light, but balancing bittering hops. Avoids being cloying. Raisin lingers a bit with exhalation. Really quite like this beer!

Dark body, almost completely, but clear. Head is brown and small. Big caramel aroma with some coffee and roasted malt. Thin to medium body, actually more thin than medium. Soft carbonation, sweet taste. Decent Dunkel.
