4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cL bottle, 2005 vintage. Pours slight darker orange compared to helles. Dark roasted and dried fruity aroma. Fullbodied. Flavour is sweet raisin like and with a mild malt base. Solid warming finish. Far more complex in flavour than the helles - but also with a slight oldish feel.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
[Vintage 2003 sampled 25 november 2003] This is a fantasticly amber colored beer with no head. The aroma is very powerful with notes of fruit especially apricot. The flavor is also sweet with strong notes of apricot. This beer is great as a digestive. All in all it is plain great.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Vintage 2000 - and probably stored for 2-3 years.Probably one of the worlds most sophisticated beers. The altered citizenship from Switzerland to Austria hasn’t really changed any of it’s qualities. Mahogany in colour. Extremely big nose as soon as you open the bottle. Figs, dates but mostly...raisins! Almost like a good portwine. This is simply yummy stuff and one of my absolute favourites. 291204

Amber colour with yellowish head, that disappears fast. Sweet aroma with notes of alcohol. Very carbonated. Very sweet flavour (almost cloying) with notes of honey and alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Reddish copper colour, small head. Aroma is alcohol, vanilla and caramel along with some yeasty hints. Flavour is alcohol, sugary, caramellish and warming. Pleasant to sip from, but was not hard drinking fast either. It gently rips your senses and suddently you note you are not sober anymore...

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. 2001 version sampled in October 2001.
Pours red-brown and thick.
Super malty with syrupy sweetness. Will by all likeliness gain by 10-25 years of aging.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Super strong deep rich taste with a fruity undertone. Spritzy characteristics and a bitterish porty finish. Nice!

Lovely dark copper ... with very light lacing and little bubbles ... sweet cherry fruits nose... rich sharp alcohol ... some toffee ... quite a lot of pine ... fair bite .... syrupy ... just too alcoholic ... but an ok nip.

Beautiful darker amber color, but almost no head, disappearing quickly. It has a mild aroma of caramel and alcohol, too light. Fairly good body strength; the mouthfeel is just a bit oily; caramel flavor, sweet but less than I remembered, with light fruity touch (pleasant) and quite evident although not obsessive alcohol presence.
It’s a bit too simple, missing some character/edges, it seems to have mellowed a bit from a couple of years ago, not necessarily for the better.

Amber color, clean, with a generous compact head, reducing to a thin layer. Mild aroma of Lager, malt, caramel and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Round body, sweet malty flavor, with some caramel and a hint of liquorice; the alcohol is quite well hidden, while the bitterness is on the low edge. It really reminds me of Eku 28, just less thick and cloying. Pleasant for sweet beer lovers, but without much interesting characteristics.

Beautiful ruby-amber color, poor head. Strong sweet aroma: malt, caramel, cookies, Christmas spices, liquorice. Extremely strong, malty, well hopped, caramel, Porto wine; chewy; evident alcohol. Long, bitter caramel final.
Exaggerated! Cloying as after dinner; better with spicy food.
