A nice, full-bodied beer. Good head. The only detracting thing is the somewhat metallic aftertaste.

harrisoni (14715) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2008
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Beautiful ruby colour with thick beige head. Good syrupy malty aroma. I liked this, ok not enormously complex, but I like the up front straight forwardness of the syrupy malts, it looks fantastic. Yes it has some lager yeast/malt flavour, but as the bottle goes down, it’s great. Very drinkable. Some syrupy sweet malt on swallow.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle, 7.4%. Very sweet aroma, brown sugar and dark malts. Very dark brown colour, seems clear. Small bubbly head. The flavour is quite malty, slightly roasted and creamy. Good, but slightly watery compared to the really good Doppelbocks.

asheft (2674) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
[bottle] Nice aroma of rich malt, complimented with fruity hops and perhaps a touch of sherry. Clear, very dark garnet with a ring of off-white foam. The flavour is all that the aroma indicated: potent and a bit spicy malt with a healthy dose of German hops. Bitterness is gentle, yet sufficient to balance the residual sweetness. A bit of ethanol apparent. Dried fruits as well as some nuttiness. Medium to full body and warming. The sweetness is not cloying at all in this beer.
