Jonb5 (507) - Greater London, - FEB 11, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Dark bronze colour, one finger head which didn’t hang around very long, kept some lacing. Quite thick looking but not hazy. Initially there was no detectable aroma, some malt and vanilla came through towards the end. Tasted charcol and malt, was overly bitter in an unbalanced way that also killed all other flavours. Finish was bitter and slightly bready. Had a coarse edge, was well carbonated and the body was quite thick for the fairly low strength. Overall not one of the better beers out there, was just a bit unbalanced even though it mellowed slightly.

Bamsen78 (5034) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2016
Draught in a restaurant in Düsseldorf. Pours clear copper brown with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of yeast and caramel and hints of dust. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of hops and yeast and hints of dust. Mild, bitterish, estery aftertaste. Rather watery and ein bisschen zu sweetish to be really good, but definitely drinkable.

Amber color with tan head. Aroma is malty, caramel, light. Taste is caramely, malty, slightly metallic lightly bitter finish. Good drinkability, light and easy-going. Good though. But I have a predisposition for ambers.

futre7 (216) - Taipei, TAIWAN - FEB 21, 2016
Another decent dark beer I enjoyed in Dusseldorf. A lot like Frankenheim to be honest. Dark amber with an off white head. Medium to low carbonation. Taste is Malt, nuts and a slight citrus edge. Dry finish. Nice.

markschiedon (586) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2016
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. Thirty year old bottle. Sour aroma, very sour taste. There are fresh beers that are meant to taste like this, but this is not my cup of tea.
