Holtguy (114) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin white head, with good lacing. Aroma is malt forward, as expected - raisins and brown sugar. Flavor is robust malts and raisin, with a somewhat sticky feel. Alcohol definitely present. No hop character at all, as far as I can tell. Overall, potent and satisfying. Exceptional version of the style.

If you like malts, it’s hard to get much maltier than this. It winds up very sweet, almost too much by the end of the bottle, so stick to one. I would recommend this one although it will be overkill if you’re not fond of malt to the extreme.

Blairgus (2567) - California, USA - DEC 19, 2012
19 dec 2012, bottle. Orange/ruby, clear, no bubbles. Nose is sweet, raisins, sugar, white grapes. Med/thin body and slightly fizzy, lots of alcohol. It is sweet at first but has a harsh alcohol flavor. It's not very nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Krygh (17) - Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Dark malt aroma with some noticeable alcohol heat in the nose with some caramelization and hints of dark fruit. As you pour this beer it's a brilliant dark copper-red. The flavor is true to the Nose. A big malty lager the a significant alcohol warmth. The kettle caramelization ads a sherry-like note on top of the malty base and alcohol heat. Relatively full mouthfeel and a nice lingering sweetness, but not cloying. Over all a nice big beer that could use some time to mellow out. Top end of the dopplebock style, this is a pretty big beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
