33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 26.06.2010
Aroma is somewhat malty with toffee, some syrup and roasted notes. Flavour has toffee, nuts, some roasted notes and hints of coffee. Easy‐going stuff. I thought this was supposed to be ale?

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Danke an den Doppelbock für die Tauschabwicklung! Süßer, etwas bitterer Geruch. Wässriger Antrunk, nur minimal ist das Malz zu erkennen. Der Mittelteil ist etwas hopfig und passt nicht zum Antrunk. Im Nachgeschmack kommt das Malz dann wieder zum Vorschein, wieder ist es etwas wässrig. Disharmonisch. Test vom 4.2.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,9,10,9,9 - 9,00

lusikka (6027) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2010
330 ml bottle. Rated @ 16.7.2009.
Pours a decent dark brown colour with a small white head. Aroma of hops and malts. Flavour of slightly toasted malts, hops, chocolate and vegetables. Light and ruined version of Koff Porter. Medium bodied with a thin mouthfeel. Decent brew anyway.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2010
Dark, ruby brown color, medium-sized tan head; sweet, slightly roasted aroma; body from thin to medium, mouthfeel a bit watery with some carbonation; flavor of roasted/burnt malt with coffee notes and some bitterness in the finish - it also tastes a bit sour, I don´t know should it.

330 ml bottle, local shop. Very dark colour, smooth taste, chocolate. Works nice as a dessert beer also.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 5, 2009
It is almost black with a red hue and a light brown, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and syrup. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, syrup, caramel, and the finish is slightly dry and citrussy. It is uncomplicated, smooth and easy to drink.
