3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2016 Brown beer with a nice head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and light alcohol. Flavor has a lot of chocolate, roasted malts, is pretty sweet and a bit vineous. It all ends in only a light bitterness. Medium thickless, but nicely soft.
Similar to a schwartzbier!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
on tap version
Pours deep cherry red or dark ruby reddish. Brown, creamy, frothy and ... fast foam. Aroma of green apples or unripe fruits, maybe rhubarb. Not so many maltiness in taste, more that green fruits. Not sweet, not bitter - average nothing. A bit floury finish. No more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: malt, some chocolate and some light fruit vinous. Appearance: dark brown to red with a decent head, some suddsy lacing. Flavour: dark brown sugars some light spicy hop notes and some of the vinous complexity hinted at in the aroma. Palate: thin but easy drinking due to being lightly carbonated.

Nice one. Golden color. It’s hoppy and yeasty with well balanced carbonation. It’s preety drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep reddish- brown with sweet malty aromas with notes of toffee and dark fruit. Substantial blend of roasted malts with hints of cocoa and coffee. Starts with a silky sweet texture then dries nicely in the end. A great beer to have with dessert. Worth getting again.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured with a cloudy gold colour and an insignificant head. Aroma was somewhat malty, along with a hint of perhaps chocolate (?) and this was replicated in the taste. A nice beer.

Malty, coffee aroma. Was a cheap bottle of beer that I never had before, won’t go out of my way to seek it out, but I would certainly not put up a fight if it was put in front of me.
