Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Dark brown color with a deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light, full sized tan head that lasts for a decent while. Smell malts, dark malts, leaves. Taste malts, dark malts, leaves, brown sugar, slightly sweet. Average body and soft carbonation. Meh.

Rating #1012 - March 1st, 2014 - Bottle from Coop - 4.7% - bought this because some guy orders 4 cases from me routinely - had to give it a whirl. Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is mild coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable for a light, roasty lager.

caramel, bread, grass, raisin, red, brown, clear, minimal head, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter
Dark ruby pour with tan head. Foam disappears quickly. Biscuity sweet aroma with light grassy hop. Caramel sweet with hints of sourness. No real bitterness. Carbonation is very light. Thin, watery body with a slick mouthfeel. Finish is quite sweet with no bitter aftertaste. A very nice beer if you’re not expecting bitterness. I like it.

0.5l bottle. Dark brown/ruby body, light brown head. Plums, reisins and a hint of roasted malts in the aroma with maybe some caramel. Taste of caramel, dark fruits, minimal roastyness and little bit of floral hops. More like a dunkel for me than a schwarzbier, but I like it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle to weizen glass.
Appearance: Transparent red color with an off white mocha head.
Aroma: Biscuit, cookies, crackers, a bit of caramel/brown sugar. Some spicyness and dark fruit but not much. Slight sour element.
Taste: Sweet biscuit, some slight sour rye bready flavours, elements of dark chocolate. Definitely sweeter than I expected.
Palate: Well rounded, good body though carbonation is on the low side I think.
Overall: Pretty nice beer. Didn’t expect the world but it actually is quite nice.

50cl bottle in Zagreb. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue and an off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, toasted malt and hints of caramel and raisins. Sweet and fruity with a light bitterness. Ok, but a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste. (2013-05-19)

Good light ale. Very light palate but surprisingly decent taste profile out side of the sweetness.
The sweetness is instant yet not overpowering. A grainy, nutty taste and just a hint of bitterness at the end.
It's a simple beer with a very light palate yet good aroma and decent taste .

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2013 Ambrée très foncé avec une mousse moyenne stable et beige. L’arôme de malt et molasse, peut être un peu de toffee. Le goût est pareille. Très, très légèrement amer en finale. Facile à boire, peu carbonée, et onctueux.
