Hanuta06 (446) - Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Allendörfer. Aroma: lightly caramel malty. Appearance: small, frothy, light-brown, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red body. Taste: moderately sweet, caramel initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, dry texture and lively carbonation. Overall: a very unique beer. It’s sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. Very good flavor and interesting appearance. I’d like to try this again.

Bottle. Dark amber colored with a creamy tan head. Already very sweet in the nose with strong aroma of caramel and honey. The taste is extremely - I would argue awfully - sweet and overpowers everything else. There is not much aroma or flavor but plain sweetness. However, it becomes slightly less sweet in the finish. The body fits the style as it medium to think with medium carbonation. This is even for the sweet German Porter overly sweet.

Bottle from trade with Erzengel, many thanks! Dunkel rötlichbraune Farbe, ordentliche leicht beige Schaumkrone. Geruch süß malzig, Malzbonbons, etwas Cola. Geschmack süß röstmalzig, Zucker, Malzbiergeschmack, nicht so toll!

asheft (2989) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle-thanks cgreb! 4.6 abv. Sweet bread crust aroma with some spicy Hallertauer hops notes. Clear mahogany under a persistent, tan, flannel blanket. Very sweet bread crust and tangy almond flavour with some fried fruit and no bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, sticky sweet finish. Not a porter by any stretch of the imagination.

Zuckerwasser mit etwas Malz und vielleicht ein wenig Schokolade. Suess, recht sueffig, aber irgendwie auch etwas eklig. Naja...

McTapps (6502) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from local T & S. Pours out in a deep black colour with no real head and medium to sticky body. Awful aroma of sugar and malt. Taste of sweet malt, brown sugar, white sugar and caramel. Awful sugary beer with some roasty hints. Awful beer.
