hauxe (165) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2016
Pours brown with a small, somewhat fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The aroma, quite subdued, is of hops and roasted malts, with a cherry note. Body is relatively thin, with quite a bit of carbonation. The undertone is of roasted malts, but this does not subside into being a sweet, malty brew like a lot of darks; the hops balances it out. Still, the overall the overall taste is rather dull, with notes of paper. In general a dry, mild bitterness dominates from beginning to end. Decent.

imdownthepub (12161) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Keg at The Brewhouse & Kitchen, Dorchester, Dorset. Dark brown with cream head. This was a slighly sweet and fruity beer, fairly light on the palate, highly carbonated with a wet cardboard note. Some nutty, vegetable notes. Just okay.

King_Alex_II (910) - SWITZERLAND - APR 18, 2015
The color is clear dark wood brown with a whitish foam head. The smell is very thin. The taste is watery but round with a dryer aftertaste. Lightly roasted nut aromas with little else. It’s an okay beer, but not something you have looked for.

MrHangover (3671) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is malty, nutty and quite faint and almost watery. Flavors are thin, medium bitter, light carbonation over a malty base. Rather bland and uninteresting, yet good drinkablitly. Short, light bitter aftertaste.. Decent.
