nuplastikk (4871) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at Dexters. Deep brown-red stained glass body, hints of light shining through the corners. Massive beige head that is in no rush to settle. Sweet raisin-prune aroma, as hint of cocoa. Smooth body, almost watery, not much hop character. Smooth and easy on the palate, quite enjoyable. Kind of like a Dubbel meets the body of an English Mild. Nuttiness, nutmeg. Comes together well, nice beer.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2012
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of black strap molasses, brown sugar and roasted malt. The flavor follows suit, with the roasted malt complimented nicely by the sweetness from the brown sugar and molasses. The alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

MrFecesious (1144) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2012
"hmmm. No sir, I don’t like it" It’s not terrible. Pours deep brown with average tan cap. Retains alright. Smells of muted molasses/licorice and dark fruit. Taste of some chocolate, dark fruit, bit of coffee. This is very much a miss. Just seems so weak/thin than what I was expecting.

SirLimpsalot (2463) - SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2012
Mjölkig doft, aning lakrits annars ganska tunn. Ingen stor eftersmak och egentligen ingen speciell öl alls. Intogs på Akkurat till 395 kr flaska - inte värd.
