pours dark amber, bit cloudy. Medium head with lingering lace. medium carbonation. Malty sweet nose hard to describe the smells present, but certainly malt forward. You can tell its a strong beer, alcohol is eminent. Not my favorite style and that proves true in its offering

ForlornHope (247) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours ruddy amber with no head at all. Sweet aroma of burnt sugar and liqueur orange. Sweet taste with a slight bitterness. The booze is evident, with more orange marmalade flavour. Sappy malt leads to a sticky palate. Only average at best.

12oz bottle on 18-Nov-2014, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Clear copper red colour with a tan coloured head. Aroma of sweet fruit, malt and caramel. Sweet caramel and malt up front, with the taste profile moving from strong ale yo tripel as the glass warms. Nice sweet finish.

Schlumpfhunter (39) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2015
Farbe: Bernstein Schaum: wie ein gutes Weizen, top. Nase: fein gerösteter Malz, säuerlich Geschmack: sehr mild und rund auf der Zunge, malzig, süß. Im Abgang dann wieder die Röstaromen und ein bisschen Getreide dazu. Ganz leicht kommt noch was Bitteres im Nachgeschmack dazu. Sehr runde Geschmacksnoten, überhaupt sehr vollmundig ohne wirklich schwer zu sein. Ich schwöre, das geniale Glas beeinflusst die Bewertung nicht, aber ich könnte darin baden!
