Feb 2013 – room temp bottle. Very mild, mid body, weak coffee, slight caramalised sugar. OK, not very exciting.

NordicV (1086) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2013
Rödbrun öl med beige skum. Doft av malt, mörkt socker och kola. Även smaken är maltig och något för söt för mitt gillande.

RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear ruby brown in color with a creamy tan head. Toasted bread, light nuttyness, dark forrest and earthy notes. A bit of some burnt notes and just some hints of smokiness in taste. Salty licorice in aftertaste with hints of hard fudge as well.

zenkis (539) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 13, 2013
Pours deep red wine intensive reddish, white-off cap. Pleasant spoty lacing. One nose this bro comes fruity-berry, bit yeasty(ale-y in short), far away roasted malt, chocolate, only minus-not very intensive; a very light sour, a bit creamy, very light sweet, pleasant bitter from hops and a bit from roasted malt - all this in flavor. Indeed it has malty profile but very balanced with other parts of brew, creamy texture. O.A. - ale-y dark beer with roast and fruityness notes. Liked a lot. Must resample comparing with same style bro.

KeefOz (835) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2013
Poured a translucent dark beer with a coppery red tinge with a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that diminished moderately quickly. Laced OK. Low carbonation. Aroma of sweet molasses (brown sugar), malt and roasted grain. Taste of sweet malt and brown sugar followed by a moderate hops bitterness. Light body (a bit thinner that I was expecting). Long smooth sweet finish. Quite nice.

500ml bottle. Pours deep brown with moderate head. Malty and slightly zesty aroma. Rich malt flavour with moderate bitterness, some spice and toast. Light smokiness but not too heavy. Pretty enjoyable.
