Clear amber with medium off white stable head. Lacing. Aroma.. quite malty, caramel, bit fruits. Sweet with moderate bitter finish. Nothing extraordinary, but enjoyable nicely balanced brew.

Hanoi (376) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Nose is appealing; smoke, caramel, burnt sugar, woodchips. Appearance is a ruby red. Taste is poor relative to the exciting nose, notes of smoke, coffee, a touch of molasses, and a slight sour apple finish leading to sweetness. The nose is nice, but the taste too shallow. i suspect it suffers from being being bottled and pasteurised, I would want it draft, but would not return to the bottle quickly.

StoutHead (611) - DENMARK - APR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep clear red color with a one-finger off-white head. A bit of malt in the aroma and not much else. Taste is of malt, caramel, nuts, burned wood and smoke. The aftertaste is of malt, smoke and perhaps a bit of licorice. Very smooth and quite good.

NordicV (1128) - 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 (2404) - 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.
