Bottle @ thewolfs pre-festival tasting, Kolding.
[thank you, skortila/caesar]
Pours deep orange with a big, frothy, off-white head. Sweet aroma, lots of tones of caramel, good overripe fruitiness. Super mouthfeel, very creamy. Flavour is pleasantly yeasty, good, fat, caramel, quite dry and with a slight fruity edge to it. Good brew.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2008
ZBF 2008. Cloudy charneol colour. Cookie malt and nut aroma. Nutty, cookie malt flavour and light sweetish. Bit bitter, from spices perhaps. Subtle acidity.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2008
This was really good, but I did expect just a little bit more out of it, but for what it was I found it really impressive. A sweet bready malt background, with some coffee caramel candy flavors, some red apple skins. Very quaffable, but I just wanted it to be a little more full-bodied.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 [Bottle] Poured at a blind tasting at the Cellars. Bready yeast and sweet caramel-toffee aroma. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a large tan head. Silky smooth mouthfeel, with a very sweet caramel flavor. Very little bitterness.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Dark cloudy amber body, a thick creamy beige head, film clings to the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel, and apples. Bitter on the back of the tongue, fruity sweet of apples and pears.

beastiefan2k (3372) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottled on April 28, 2007, consumed almost exactly one year later. It pours beautiful with a medium sized, srong, head. The color is a dark brown, too dark to see through but a few clear light streaks in there as well. Aroma is strong with at first sweet raisin, then sugary dark sweet bread, and finally just a hint of earthiness at the end. The great part is it is not sticky sweet or overly sugary, just an earthy baked goods with dark fruits, type of sweetness. Taste is kind of turned upside down with a very strong mineral and seltzer like mouthfeel. It seems to really cover up a lot of the dark fruits and sweet black breadiness. This makes it really drinkable without sweetness getting in the way. The downside is the mouthfeel comes off a bit too lively.
750mL capped and wrapped bottle, Rodenbach GC smaller tulip.

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 750 ml bottle into fluted goblet; purchased at Green’s, Atlanta. This was delicious. Head is initially large and fizzy over a brown, dubel-looking body. Smell is of seltzer, light grapefruit, malted milk powder, and toasted water crackers. Lots of gentle but well defined malty flavors: golden raisin plays with honey and honeydew melon to keep the feel light and crisp. Finishes sweet and a little bit dry, "feathery" as Sammy put it (good description) and a bit peppery. Certainly very quaffable, not as full as others in the style, and I liked it.
