rlgk (13365) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2005
Hazy amber color with some of the hugest yeastparticles I ever have seen in a beer. Coffee and chocolate aroma, some what salty and fruity. Malty flavor with some vanilla, fruity notes, a bit salty biut still mild. Maybe a little thin.

Koelschtrinker (12645) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Süffiger und herber Malzantrunk. Das Malz wird kräftiger, die Herbe wandelt sich in Bitterkeit. Das Hauptaroma verschiebt sich vom Malz zur trockenen Bitterkeit. Wenig fruchtig. Zum Ende trocken malzig, die Bitterkeit ist fast schon etwas säuerlich. Bekömmlich! 9/9/8/9/11/8

bhensonb (12447) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Aroma of medium dark malts. Clear mahogany color with a light beige head. Body is a bit thin, flavor is lightly sweet brown malt. There is some roasted, but not burnt, malt character. Almost creamy in a way. Reasonably moderate carbonation. After a time some stout aspects, maybe chocolate, probably coffee, show up. In fact the finish is more like a mild stout than a brown. Very, very nice ale.
