500 ml. bottle @ home – darker brown with a red hue with an off-white head around the sides – smell is light cola, syrup, caramel, molasses, spices with a reasonably strong herbal streak – tastes of caramel malts, caramel syrup, molasses, dark fruits, herbal, sticky winter spices, plenty of toast, light bitter in the back – ok medium head – not overly impressive – ok German style exercise

(Draught @ The Man Of Kent. Rochester) What can I say ? I was rather tipsy when this stocky brew came my way ,and yes, its syrupy and cumbersome but with a generous amount of flavours goin ’ down. Notes that suggest dark malts ...giving birth to caramel . chocolate . A dash of earthy hops and notes of tar ....a very treacly ,almost winey texture never relentess on the palate . This beer is not with a "more’ish" potancy and that’s why I drink dark lager.

Malty smooth with dabs of caramel. Over carbonated to my taste with hints of aluminum (oxidation) and sulfur.

0,5 l bottle shared with McTapps. Malt all the way. After some pilsners and exports this one is something special. Malt, caramel and a bit if roast all the way. With that taste the head doesn’t matter. Winner of my Saturday night. Easy to drink but still with a full body. Great one.

Great beer. Almost like a malt beer with alcohol. Sweetish, quaffable, almost no bitterness.
