Head is large on a regular pour (not at an angle.). Deep brown copper color. Nothing outstanding as far as the aroma, however there is hints of fruitness. The front of the taste is fruity caramel malty and very fizzy with touch of hops and alcohol at the tail. Itís well balanced as far as taste to the alcohol, which is hidden well, but it seems to lack something in the taste to give it an outstanding character. Itís very good but there is nothing about it that makes it great...Simply put. Its thin somewhere...

Pours a deep amber/ light brown and hazy with a medium head. Crystal malt and lots of blegian fruitiness in the aroma- figs, raisins, plum etc. Flavor is a bit sweet at first with some candi sugar in there along with more caramel like malts, and ends with just a bit of hops. Gets a bit warm in alcohol towards the end.

Fruity banana nose with light hints of it in the flavor which I thought was weak. I tasted some alcohol there. It was a murky brown with a thin off white head and was fairly smooth.

Redish amber colour catches the light. Thick head with great retention. Toasty, hoppy, scent. Taste is creamy head, then nutty with a dry finish. A very wee bit sweet, with a taste that reminds me of almonds.

Amber Brown with a thick foamy head that had excellent retention. Strong fruit scent (banana?). Verry fizzy with a strong bite on the tongue. Flavour was not very deep but pleasant.

330ml brown bottle. Deep amber/brown. Large fluffy tan head. Chocolate malt aroma, trace of iron. Flavour - dark chocolately malt, dash of spiciness, slight alcohol warming deep in the throat. Lingering malt aftertaste.

RBSG 2005... Poured a copper brown color with a light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spices, banana, and caramel malt. Taste of tart grapes, raisins, citrus, yeast, and light alcohol.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2005
Nice looking mahogany with a large fluffy tan head. Sweet nose with dark fruits and a very small hint of chemicals(chlorid?!). Strange, though not really annoying. Comes back a bit in the taste, together with raisins, fudge, caramel and grapes. Sharp palate, alcoholbite in the aftertaste. Strange.

JonMoore (2022) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2005
Dark but clear, deep reddish brown, plenty of carbonation with a huge off-white head. Caramel and soft roast malts in the aroma. Effervescent, full bodied mouthfeel. Taste is caramel and malts to begin turning quite bitter. Alcohol becomes apparent in the finish. Different, but very good.
