Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Dunkler süßer Antrunk mit wenig herben Beinoten. Die leichte Muffigkeit, die im Mittelteil aufkommt verschwindet direkt wieder, zum Ende ist eine seichte Säurenote erkennbar, die aber ins Gesamtbild passt. Vorwiegend bleibt das Bier süß und karamellmalzig. Ausgewogen, vollmundig – rundum gelungen. 8/11/9/9/11/9

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle. It pours an almost black body, really, really brown, topped by a small tan head. Butterscotch, burnt malt and coffee in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, with a coffee-bitter finish and a good dash of sweetness. Medium body. Not my kind of beer, too much butterscotch for that, but easy to drink. (080822)
