COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Dark Red Temptation" is a red Strong Ale focused on the malty body. It is a "Single Hop" Strong Ale too, I only used Cascade.

33cl bottle pours with a nice clear amber to copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up lots of dark fruity ester notes like prunes, cherries and raisins with a mild kind of berry fruity hoppiness well off in the background. The taste starts with a load of prunes and cherry like fruity esters and then it picks up a bit of a brown sugar note to midway. It gets into a sense of raspberry and blackberry with a floral hop cloud hovering overhead. Pretty nice sipper and it improves as it warms.

330ml bottle from Bierzweig@home. Dark reddish color with minimal white head. Aroma is sweet and caramelly maltish with some dark fruits.and raisin. Taste is mainly sweet. Body almost full with sticky palate and soft carbonation. German craft beer is a bit too sweet for my taste but overall an enjoyable experience.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass brownish-copper coloured. Huge head. Starts intense hoppy and dry, bitter background. Notes of grapefruit. Also a bit metallically, hints of caramel. Finish well balanced. Quite drinkable for its strength. Nice!

CloakedDagger (611) - - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Sweet fruity and caramellish nose. Rich body, heavy on the crystal malts, pleasantly fruity but not quite enough hops to balance the massive sweetness. 260713

kiwianer (3340) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 10, 2013
The head is ok, the body brown-red. it smells caramel, darkmalty, sweet, a bit alkoholic. The taste is caramel, sweet, barley-wine, dry-raisins, in the aftertaste raisins citrus. Complex and delicious beer! 12/13/12/12/11/12
