Luvystypotables (1694) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Not sure what beer the deScription is for but it is not the beer I tasted. Weak aroma of fruits and nuts, pours a clear reddish brown color with a short lasting off white head. A watery body with a weak nutty taste and a slightly fruity finish.

theread (58) - Wagga Wagga, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Dan Murphy Wagga. Poured nice red colour but the head was thin and didn’t last too long. Nice caramel and dried fruit taste but not as strong and lasting as I would have expected after being told about this one. Easy to drink and could cause dramas with the 5.8% alcohol as it could sneak up on you if you had a few.

bastarda (439) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
shared with Konfuzzi Dec/15. aromas of dark caramel malts with a nice hint of wood/oak. Tastewise quite a let-down, too watery, diluted caramels, flat, boring.

Fisler (408) - Bamberg, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2015
Schöne rote Farbe, zügige Perligkeit. In der Nase Röstmalz, Pflaume, Karamell. Im Trunk kräftig malzig, leichte Frucht, mittig alkoholisch, im Abgang nochmal stärker Malz. Sehr schön rund und doch komplex. Sehr lecker.

Looks good and is smooth, but doesn’t strike me as a good red. I can’t detect it on the nose or tongue. It should have a,little bite, but this thing is too caramel right through. One pint pour.
