Dark brown with a nice tan head, good retention. Nose is figs, raisins, caramel, toffee, marzipan, yeast esters. Flavour is so well balanced, notes of banana, dark fruits, sweet malts, brown sugar, bubblegum. Slight hint of alcohol, but for the abv it’s really well hidden. One of the best.

Ich werde das Bier nicht ausführlich beschreiben; die große Mehrheit kennt es eh schon. Daher bleibt nur zu sagen: Weltklasse. Eines der besten Biere der Welt, dazu Preis-/Leistungs-Verhältnis sagenhaft. Einfach nur toll.

I have nothing to add, that other raters have not already written. This beer is simply the best.

Very smooth, slightly sweet malty taste fading to bitter with just a hint of the alcohol. A very good brew.

Old bottle (3 ish years, I think). Very dark brown with nice tan head that dissipated. Smells like good dark bread, dark fruits, and a hint of sour. Smooth for such a high ABV. Nicely balanced. I see why people like this. (and I like it too.)

Vertical tasting. Old bottle (4 years, 4 month old) Nose is sweet bread, dark fruit, brown sugar. Taste has lots of fruity esters, sweet chestnuts and figs. Soft mouthfeel. Dark and cloudy in appearance, minimal head, but it sticks around. Newer bottle (1 year, 10 months old) is obviously similar but differs as such: Nose is less intense, lighter and there is some citrus and peppery notes and less bread in the smell and taste. More carbonation and head. And a lighter, almost reddish hue. This monster holds up really nice, but I prefer the fresher liquid.
