330ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear deep mahogany color with reddish hues and a decent off white head. Sweet nose, caramel, sugar, some malt, faint floral notes. Sweetish malt flavors, lo bitterness, lots of caramel and light toffee notes. alcohol is present. Medium bodied, somewhat medicinal, OK at best.

Icedwarf (1276) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Helder roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is sterk en licht kruidig, caramel en drop. Blijft helaas niet lang hangen.

jamaty (1872) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar oscura, cobriza. Aroma a malta y caramelo. Sabor algo metálico y bastante alcohólico en lo negativo, y caramelizada y lupulada en lo bueno. En conjunto no está mal, para comer. Sola puede resultar bastante cansina.

fly (1461) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2004
SWEET initially, malt way up front & sugary with hops on the distant hillside waving as if to say we may be there eventually. Adult candy - tricked or treated? Not really unpleasantly sweet, but edging up to it. Perhaps ever so slightly better than I’m implying, but not by a great measure. (and unlike the % listed here, this bottle says 6.6%)

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2005
Shiney red-amber beer with small ivory colored head. The smell is slight sweet, malty, nutty and has a faint spicy accent in the aroma. The taste is smooth, light sweet with some caramel notes. Also touches of nuts and the bitterness of nut-peel. It has hints of sugared ginger, and some bitter herbs. The aftertaste reminds me a bit of SUZE = a Frensh apperitief.

From a 50cl cann. Intens warm amber color with small light beige head. Sweet caramel nose with light malty accent and some alcohol sweetness in the" smell. Taste is light malty and on the sweet side, the body is a bit thin and in the afthertaste there is a slight metallic accent with a fait alcohol bitterness.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
(Can 50 cl) Clear and very dark amber golden with a small, off-white head. Odd, perfumy nose. Medium body with sweet, malty accents and - again - perfume. Very alcoholic finish. Odd, but not that bad. 130806
Earlier Rating: 1/24/2006 Total Score: 2.9
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, reddish amber colour with a delicate, creamy, beige head that leaveas a pretty curtain of laces. Aroma of malt and alcohol. Full-bodied with a very sugary sweetness. Some slightly perfumy, fruity notes are hiding in the flavour making this a rather unusual strong lager. Rather discreet bitterness. 240106

On tap at Gollem. Fruity, cherry aroma. Sugary, carbonated ale with caramel flavour. Spicy and high-alcohol taste. Syrupy finish.

Bottle, thanks to screwball. Quite nice amber color, offwhite head. Malty and fruity aroma, maybe some nutty notes. Malty, sweet flavor, some alcohol and fruits. Sweet alcohol finish.
