Darkamber in color with a yellowish head. Has a little touch of pineapple in aroma. A little to much alcohol for my taste.

Huge tan coloured head, that didnít want to go away, on top of a black/dark brown cola coloured body.On the nose I seemed to pick up grains and not much else, let alone the alcohol. I found the taste sweet but pleasant, mainly malt flavours, more of the soft caramel and chocolate, it was medium to full bodied, well balanced with some dryness to clean it up and you donít notice the alcohol. Cheers!

Bottle...with the labels falling off. WTF? Reddish-brown, a bit hazy. Big head. Sweet, thick mouthfeel, some nice maltiness...toffee, perhaps some chocolate? Dry finish, interesting mouthfeel but something just didnít do it for me (admittedly my rating notes are kind of scant at this point)

Poured a dard reddish-brown with a huge brown/tan head. Heavy yeasty smell with a Malty aroma. Tastes of molasses and toffee with light fruits (very sweet). I couldnít get over the yeasty smell. Alcohol well hidden. However, the beer grew on me as I drank more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a good beer with a nice alcohol content that does not show in the taste. Nice and thick and a very dark brown color. There is a sweetness character to this beer. The only problem I have with it is that the label is always falling off the beer, whats up with that.

Deep ruby red in color. Large fluffy head. Aroma of stale grains and a sweetness of ripe fruit. The taste is not impressive. Bland dark malts with an unbalanced yeaty finish.

This brew has a huge alcohol, yeasty, sweet apple-cinnimon aroma, maybe some pineapple thrown in-I can taste it already; quite subdued for such a strong nose: caramel, chocolate, candi sugar, fruit, dough.....is that "Hefeklosse"? (German yeast dumpling/pear dish mom used to make)?; quite sweet with a bit of a slight dry finish. This is one brew thats go so much going for it: drinkablity, flavor, kick, charactor....itsa beautiful thing!
