Bottiglia 355ml ordinata su domus birrae e bevuta a casa. Ambrata scurissima con schiuma evanescente. Frutta matura e alcol al naso. In bocca tantissimo corpo, oleosa, carbonazione fine. Malatata, amara e complessa, sentori di frutta matura, finale eterno e pieno di sfumature. Un nettare.

12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and dark fruit. Taste is roasted malt, caramel, raisin, plum, cherries, and a bit of alcohol. Rich and warming. Good.

Bottle from mikem409. Pours a cherry-cola-like reddish brown with a small head. Aroma is super malty, lots of raisins and other dark fruits, molasses. Taste is very sweet, with a strange light "tartness" (not your typical tartness, but it’s the best word I can think of) that really fills my mouth on the finish, although that fades as the beer warms. No alcohol to be found whatsoever. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Interesting.

Odd beer for me. Zero aroma. Sewage toffee pour taste was mostly vinuous and alcohol. Some toffee. Palate was med thick.

’11 bottle from Sean - thanks! Very dark brown pour with a dark tan head that quickly fades to a ring on the edges of the glass. Aroma is thick, sweet, and dense with plum, raisin, toffee, dark fruit, maybe some candied sugar, and alcohol vapors. Taste is licorice, plum, fig, raisin, alcohol bitterness, and lingering sweetness. Coating mouthfeel. Classic Kuhnhenn gnar-style malt masterpiece. Good one.

jstraw (1915) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Dark mahogany with scant, tan head, no legs / Rich, full, sweet nose of caramel, dark fruit, coffee, chocolate / Medium to full body, but seems thin for its density and abv, chewy, sweet & syrupy, good hop balance, big abv well masked / Flavors of roast coffee, caramel, raisin, date, / This a good beer, but I question making it as a lager as the body just doesn’t hold up, and the flavors are somewhat washed out. This cries out to be an ale, a barleywine.

hoffback (37) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2013
Doften är maltig, blommig och parfym. Viss torkad frukt typ russin. Smaken är otroligt söt och rätt sliskig med inslag av malt, russin och madeira. Nej detta var ingen höjdare. Alldeles för söt och avsaknad av karaktär.

Staffan47 (862) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Oerhörd maltsötma och godis i bouquet. Spritig. Viss maltsötma men inte i närheten av världsklassbockar. Syntetiska inslag. Dock passerat "bäst före"

2011 vintage bottle pour..medium to dark cola like hue..not getting much of the red tint as indicated on bottle..nose is quite intense with all kinds of things happening..they all seem to mold together to produce a memorable aroma..wood..vanilla..black cherry.dark fruit..mouthfeel is unique as expected..surprisingly slick..malty sweetness hits and then comes a slight wave of sourness to keep everything in check..surprisingly fairly medium bodied.very little notice of the extremely high abv on sip but it does provide some warming heat on the lingering finish..happy to score this rare bottle from deciccos a while back...busted out for 300..
