BigMomma (226) - Leuven, - JUL 31, 2012
Details: 25cl bottle
Tasting notes: Pours a hazy deep red color with a bubbled white head. Sweet full aroma of malt and caramel, some toffee notes, a touch of dark chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty, proceeds to a gentle bitterness with some roasted touches, quite a dry finish. Mouthfeel is quite thin but not disturbing, however the flavors would come out better if it was a bit fuller. Together with the long dry finish however does the thin mouthfeel make the beer very drinkable.
Conclusion: A decent good drinkable beer with a long lasting dry finish.

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle. A soft malty smell, light bitter, like cola without sugar. The medium large pale beige head is creamy and foamy with a normal duration. The body is nearly black. A light alcoholic and malty taste, some coffee. The body is medium strong and creamy with a lively carbonation.

paulvanpelt (535) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
Kastanjebruin bier met rode gloed, nauwelijks een schuimkraag. In de neus wat karamel en mouten. Verder aroma van groen fruit, fris. Smaak is licht bitter, medium zoet. Vooral erg waterig. Weinig aan.

Sweet, not too bad for a supermarket beer. Does get boring after a little while, and a little too sweet.

25 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Jumbo Tiel. Dark brown with a minimal off-white head. Caramel aroma with some roasted malts and some coffee. Sweet taste with some bitterness. Short finish but otherwise decent enough.
