33 cL bottle. Pours red/amber brown with a good creamy light brown head. Aroma is sour while the beer still is too cold, becomes more malty, yeast and spiced as it heats up. Flavour is first slight berry-sour, going strong malty, sweet to dry and then yeasty. Finish is clearly spiced and alcohol makes an appearance.

eyesandsmiles (179) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 25, 2007

iosonomarco (41) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2007
Appena aperta si libera un intenso e persistente aroma dolce, molto fruttato e caramellato. Gusto dolce, caramellato, con retrogusto amaro molto ben bilanciato. La gradazione alcolica è mascherata bene. Finale dolce

thewolf (11188) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep red amber with a nice full head. The head dissipates to a thick film that stays throughout your drinking. Aroma is sweet - caramel and molasses. Some metallic in there as well. along with some spices. Flavour is slightly sour at first, then adds caramel. Feels very full as you drink it with lots of warming alcohol.
