Naka (714) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2008
On tap at Sharp Edge. A dark brown opaque brown color with a medium beige head. A deep malty aroma of dark fruit, smoked brown sugar, and a bit of a yeasty character. Taste of apples, plums, caramel malts and sweet brown sugar. A medium to light body that leaves a little bit of sweetness on the tongue.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2008
On tap at Sharp Edge. Woody musty aroma, mild oak and light sweet grain, caramel malt. Dusty. Apple skins. Not much in the way of hops. Hazy brown, with no head. Murky. Medium body with medium fizzy carbonation, a bit watery. Starts sweet with light caramel, apple skins, and brown sugar. A little woody. Sweet and a bit watery with a light dry-nutty finish. OK, but just lacks a little something.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 9, 2008
Dark brown/black in colour with small toffee coloured head. Weird acidic aroma. malty flavour with hint of rasin. Always good for a challenge.

ZBF2008: From tap. Pours dark brown with a lacing off-white head. Aroma is light fruity and mild malty. Flavour is light fruity, mild caramel malty with a light note of roasted malt. Cane sugarish lingering finish. Light yeasty note.

MiP (14257) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle, 6.5%. Very slow gusher. Malty aroma, but a bit rough. Darks malts and brown sugar. Cloudy dark brown colour. Small light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet with some nice, mildly roasted notes. A little creamed coffee, some sweet dark bread, quite some brown sugar. CO2 finish. Reminds me of a hvidtøl for grownups.

Really only 150 ratings for this? Bottled shared by jarspag from the liquor store down Whistler Way which had the weakest selection of wintertime brews this side of the Mississippi. Looks like Duchesse in the glass, hazy burgundy. Aroma lacking any punch, with some malty and fruity undertones and an acetic finish. Depth is missing overall, I’d rather drink Alexander Keith’s IPA....wait...no I wouldn’t.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Pours a dark chestnut brown with thin beige head. Aroma is very strong consisting of oak and dark fruit. A bit more sour than I had expected. Oak flavor overides the dark fruit and smooth maltiness.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bottle. Soda pop like pour with quickly dissipating fizzy carbonation. Aroma and flavor mostly dark fruits and caramel. Flavor fades quickly and the mouthfeel is thin and uninviting. A decent beer at best.

Bottled(330ml). -Dark brown coloured, medium sized pale brown head. Roasted malt, caramel and hoppy aroma with notes of milk chocolat, burnt sugar and smoke. Also quite fruity. Sweet finish.

This reddish-brown ale poured with a decent beige head. The flavor is indeed subtle, as the brewer claims, with some fruity notes over a caramel malt base
