MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2006
(33cl bottle, traded with Saarlander) Clear, dark amber colour with a small foamy tanned head. Shy aroma: slightly sweet and dusty toasty malt with caramel. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Strong dark malty taste, toasted with caramel and light fruity notes (dried fruits); medium-dry, malty and minimal-bitter finish.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Poured into a tankard. Pourd kind of a reddish, brownish, ruby garnet color with a think tan head. Rather bready aroma. Typical imported smell. Dry caramel on the palate. Very little hop character, and very clean fermentation character. Finishes with a bit of roasted bitterness. Easy to drink. Thanks to Saarlander.
