Aubrey (3455) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Bottle, served in a wine glass at Cafe Claude in Gros Islet, St. Lucia: Dark amber and mostly clear with a reddish glow. Fizzy head thinned out quickly. Sugared apple nose. Smooth and sweet malts, though not cloying. Notes of candy sugar and spiced apples. Big notes of raisins and dates. Alcohol was hidden fairly well -- just a little nip here and there. Dry, carbonated finish, with only a hint of bitterness.

jonas (5882) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2003
Bitterhop and caramel nose. Lovely chestnut brown, low but stable head. Sweet dark malt flavors, a bit too dominating perhaps. Smooth texture, rich body. Ok.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2003
Brown sugar, malt aroma, ruby, hint of copper, small toffee head. Good malt flavour, nice bitter aftertaste. Light bodied, not overly sweet. A very nice treat!

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Brownish red, some hjops in aroma, but mostly sweet malt. Same profile for the taste. A nice French beer.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2003
I was told that this is one of the best French beers. That really tells something about France and brewing. This beer is very boring. Brown. Sweet and cloying. Rather light bodied. Short finish.

KOTBA (17) - GERMANY - JUL 5, 2003
the best beer all over the world for girls!!! sweet tasting with dark appearence. Surprising that Heineken produces a beer that tastes well.

pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2003
Very soft, low carbonation. Dark fruit and chocolate sweet palate. Not a thirst quencher, but a good alternative to a french cafe beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2003
Bottled. Tawny brown, almost red, pured well. The head was light lacy and stayed throughout. Fruity (berries) & quite sweet, with a tart finish.

pivo (2605) - GERMANY - MAR 22, 2003
On tap: light cherry fruitiness, cloudy choco-brown color. Syrupy, toffee malt body with black currant tones in the middle. Nice sweet finish. Think body and a texture that fills all corners of the mouth. Pretty full, good dessert beer that is not too heavy.

YogiBeera (2511) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2003
on tap at Tango du Chat, Paris: Malt and cherry nose but weak. Murky brown with hints of red. Flat carbonations, brussels laces. Fruity, from the smell I would say, cherry. Medium finish. Nice and refreshing, ok. Nice place with served olives and peanuts.
