Bottle - Clearbrown color. Medium, frothy head. Herbal and grassy aroma with distinct sour yeasty notes and light sulphurous, resinous feel. Crisp grassy hops initially, Moderate sweet molasses, caramel and liquorice mouthfeel leading to crisp herbal, slightly roasted bitternes. Light to medium bodied.

villevav (373) - FINLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Dark brown, slightly hazy, brown head. The aroma is dominated by sweet rye bread. The taste begins dry with medium bitterness, but becomes gradually sweet and a bit salty towards the finish. The taste is supported by medium carbonation and a medium body. All in all, it is bit of an odd bird: too strong (6.3% ABV) and too sweet for a dark lager, but too straight-forward and too light-bodied for a doppelbock.

adster (554) - HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2014
Csak sejteni vélem, hogy a hordó aljához volt szerencsém a kóstolás során, a sör alapvető jellegzetességei azonban egy kellemes ital benyomását keltették. Némi aszalt szilva aromája, finoman pörkölt, gazdag malátás, enyhe kávés jelleg uralkodik lágy ízében.
