Deep brown muddy body. Lightly brown head. Aroma of malts (sweet cara/chocolate), wine (and some yeast). Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour of malts and some hops. Not very well balanced, bit still ok.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2011
(draught at Festival der Bierkulturen 2010, Köln) Hazy, amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Toast-malty aroma with notes of sweet liquorice and a whiff of smoke and hops. Full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Hearty malt-character with moderate to subtle notes of dried fruits; sweet and slightly hop- and roasty bitter finish with present notes of alcohol. Nevertheless a well-balanced brew. 16.V.10

maneliquor (2989) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a dirty chestnut brown with a small off white head. Decent lacing left. Smells of over ripe dark fruits and bitter coffee - lots of plums, raisins and cherries. A slight sweetness throughout. Taste comes across as burnt and bitter coffee beans with a lingering sweetness of ripened plum and raisins. Brown sugar notes in there as well. A long, dry bitterness left on the palate. Pretty average

(375ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clearish rich orange-brown, light tan bubbles. Nose is a bit funky, mildly tart fruits, oranges and vanilla. Taste is toasty caramel, vanilla, very hidden alcohol, excellent. Easy to drink. Thick mouthfeel and really creamy.

tiong (3610) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2011
375ml bottle, thanks lusikka

Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, with hints of raisin, exotic fruits and alcohol. Taste is caramely sweet with notes of toffee, exotic fruits and malts. Finish is sweet, smooth and carbonated. Full bodied. Quite good, but I’m not a fan of these kind of overly sweet dessert beers.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2011
375 ml bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.
Pours a dark brown colour with a white frothy head. Aroma of strong licorice and dark chocolate. Flavour of caramel malts, licorice, dark chocolate, hops and lovely sweet toffee. Medium/full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and a sweet raisiny toffee finish. Very tasty without too much sweetness.
