Very dark brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma was roasted malt, dark fruits, clove and banana. Quite sweet but with lots of plums, molasses, apple, banana, chocolate and smoke. A slight touch of alcohol in the finish. A very nice beer

33 cL bottle (#061887). Pours hazy brown with a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. Very little head, but it was off-white to light brown and crispy when poured. Carbonation keeps working in the glass. Strong dried fruit aroma with dark portwine like notes. Thick mouthfeel. Dark roasted malt, strong raisin flavour into strong sweetness with a solid alcohol base beneath. Slight clove spiced from the middle towards the finish. Long lasting alcohol lifted finish with dried fruits and roasted malt. Very nice, complex flavoured but still very clean and accessible palate.

The aroma is sweet of raisins, fruit, plums, and very faint hints of wheat. The color is a clear brown and it has a beutiful light brown head - and is served in a very beutiful glass. The flavor is very sweet with notes of raisins, wheat, plums, and other fruits - a little too sweet for me. It ends on slightly wheaty note with the alcohol hitting you right in the end - but then it gives you warmth in the cold of winter. It has a good palate.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Bottle # 060899. Dark brown getting darker the closer you get to the bottom of the bottle. Tall, light brown head that fades pretty fast. This beer not only has a sediment, it has huge lumps of yeast whick takes a long time to settle. A nose like port wine or perhaps even cognac? Extremely powerful and full-bodied with an extremely tense and complex aroma, where everything seems to be concentrated. Very sweet and thick fluid - almost has a hard time getting out of the bottle! A truly world classic like for instance "Samiclaus". Excellent! But one bottle is plenty.... 290405

Cloudy dark brown beer. No head. Light dry palate, turns softer quickly. Dark toffee, unsweet and a little spirity and spicy. Banana, well buried. Soft spritzy minerals before the dry finish which has a spirity warmth. Decent but not sure it deserves it’s reputation.

2013-03-14, purchased in 2010 but with bottle number 2006/07286; 7-3-8-4-15=37
American export label, no ABV info
Dark brown color, the head is short lived. Caramel and wheat aroma, with impression of Parmigiano Reggiano. Full bodied, with good caramel flavor, sweet but lean, light oxidisation, some wheat, hint of nuts, moderate bitterness and just a tiny alochol perception.
Balanced and better than the fresh bottles; I don’t know if it’s 3 or 7 years old, but some aging improved the beer.
2011-01-11, bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt, bb 30.10.15, 12% ABV, 7-3-6-2-11=29
Dark amber to mahogany color, with dark ruby reflex; the head is short lived. Mild aroma of caramel and bubblegum, light banana and alcohol. The mouthfeel is fizzy, there is caramel flavor, just some residual sweetness, light banana and wheat flavor too, and unfortunately a light sourness, a sign of infection, quite rare in Germany. Difficult to appreciate.
2004-07-30, bottle, 11% ABV, 6-3-8-3-14=34
Muddy dark amber color. Malty, sweet, strong; too high alcohol punch. Some liquorice, candies, caramel, Weizen character… Too much extreme.
