wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Tasted on 7/1/13 from a capped 12oz bottle sent to me in the Easter Bunny BIF. Pours completely opaque dark brown, nearly black, with an average tan head that leaves average lace, along with tons of clinging to the glass. The nose is sweet with strawberry syrup, plenty of milk chocolate, and a nice vanilla aroma. The flavor is the same as the nose, but all of the flavors are on the dry side, with a nice dose of bitter dark chocolate. The body is full and creamy with average, but very smooth carbonation, and a long dry strawberry and bitter dark chocolate finish. This is very pleasant.

Mr_Pink_152 (1554) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
355ml bottle from favourite beer. Deep cola black, and the sweetness gives it an almost cola taste. A touch too sweet for me.

MichaelAwesome (5176) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
Na, das ist doch mal wieder ein Bierchen mit Herz und Verstand. Milch und Suesse kommen gut durch, waehrend Sueffigkeit mehr als gegeben ist und hervorragend mit den gebotenen Aromen harmoniert. Ein mildes, einfach zu trinkendes und mehr als befriedigendes Piwo.

larsga (6523) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 6, 2015
Big brown head with great cling. Just barely translucent clear deep dark red body. Fruity chocolatey aroma with perfumy sugary notes. Mildly artificial aroma that feels like the beer is going to be too sweet, but otherwise great. Sweet earthy perfumy fruity taste with cocoa notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy fruity mealy aftertaste with lingering dusty roasty notes. Very interesting beer, and well put together, but too artificial and too one-sided for me to give it higher marks. Wasn’t too sweet, after all. (0.355l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

McTapps (5182) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 5, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep black colour with a low head and smooth body. Aroma of chocolate, sweet espresso and icecream - delicious. Taste of vanilla icecream, chocolate, strawberries, sweet malt, milky coffee, sweet espresso and cake. Smooth and delicious to drink, enjoyed it.

Idiosynkrasie (4575) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2015
355ml bottle. Dark, brownish-black colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Artificial, sweet-ish strawberry aroma. Taste is sweet, artificial notes of strawberry, a touch of vanilla. Quite horrible.

Koelschtrinker (12031) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 15, 2015
Sehr süßer künstlicher Antrunk, Karamell. Malzig bleibend, süffig, die Überdosis der künstlichen Aromen nimmt ab. Wenig würzig. 7/4/6/7/6/6
