bosta (211) - SLOVENIA - JUN 25, 2016
From a tap. Pours clear dark reddish brown, with a medium beige head. Sweet aroma of dark sugar, caramel and slight roastiness. Flavour is simmilar. Mouthfeel is sticky and has a bitter, sweet finish. Not Bad.

Can. Beautiful dark ruby, very clear with nice white head. Aromas of caramel and malts, moderate but very pleasant. Light to medium body, sweet with slight bitterness in the finish, pretty drinkable. Really enjoyed.

ciemnobursztyniwe, dość duża piana ładnie koronkująca na szkle, w aromacie lekki karmel, w smaku podobnie, piwo jest lekkie w sam raz na letnie popołudnie

Dark ruby, moderate head. Aroma somehow reminds of a belgian dubbel: caramel, spices and dried fruits. Taste is sweet with low bitterness and molasses aftertaste. Interesting

phfyysik (517) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2016
Sweet nose with caramel, malt and some sugar. Taste is also quite sweet, dark caramel follows from nose, mild bitterness. Not too much carbonisation, surprisingly. Good to drink.

Deep, dark brown colour, soapy tan head. Sweet malty aroma with lots of syrup. Strong malte taste, a bit bitter towards the end. Soft but weak mouthfeel, minimal carbonation. Decent.

TorbenJensen (1439) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2015
The beer has a nice sustained and light brown foam. The strong scent of caramel from the hard-roasted malt. In the flavoring mixes are also a little fruit, as best I can recognize as orange. Furthermore, a light touch of hop. Taste is first marked by sweet caramel malt, then it becomes slightly fruity in flavor before it all ends in a very light taste of dark chocolate and a pleasant light hop bitterness persistent and very tasteful. Although the terms of taste is very far from other bock beer styles it nevertheless has a great richness that makes it very suitable to enjoy to food or simply as an aperitif.
