thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Aakjaers, Esbjerg.
Pours clear red amber with a fine, medium, frothy off-white head. Good duration, and fine lacing. Rather spicy and earthy aroma with a sweetish toffee touch. Fine, frothy creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sadly a bit metallic, lots of sweet caramel thickness. Light citric bitter. If the metallic notes weren’t there, this would be really great. Still, with that slight off-flavour, it’s very nice.

750ml bottle-Thanks to Joe/jwc215 pours a bubbly light tan head and ruby/mahogany color. Aroma is musty, barnyard, medium/dark fruit, medium malt-sweet. Taste is dark fruit, medium malt-toffee, secondary spicy hops then husky grain towards finish.

Koelschtrinker (11056) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Brotiger, leicht malziger Geruch, zudem geringfügig alkoholisch-süß. Brotig-alkoholischer Antrunk, erst süß, dann bitter bis würzig. Der Mittelteil erscheint wie der Nachgeschmack sehr aromenreich, würziger werdend und komplex. Malzig-würziger Abgang. Test vom 21.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,12,11,14,13,12 - 12,10

clear amber, large smooth offwhite head. Sweet malty, nutty aroma, crisp. flavor is quite smoked or roasted, malty, a little sweet. maize, fruity notes, alc shows clearly when warming up. this reminds me most of a cheap strong beer, but with some interesting comlexity added in, unbalanced.

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. Amber with white head. This proved to be quite a sweetish, caramel beer, toffee but with a yeasty spiciness and light lemonade note. Pleasant and easy drinking, quite decent.
