BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
This review is of two 500ml cans bought for me from IKEA in the UK, both BBD of 18 May 09, drank during a bad lager evening on 14 Mar 09. Poured into my ’La Chouffe’ tulip glass (four times). Large off-white head sat on top of a dark amber, clear body. It looked fine and the glass showed it off to its full potential. An aroma of tea with sugar was what I thought of as my nose approached the beer. Then some molasses and treacle came through. The taste was strange, the tea smell gave way to a mild coffee flavour and some toffee sweetness, I didn’t like it much. The body was weak, a bitter finish in the mouth didn’t help its cause and I was pleased they had been a free gift and I hadn’t paid for them. Promised so much at first, but sadly lacking once tasted and when compared to other dark lagers.

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2011
0.5 l can my friend Matej brought from Germany, thanks! It poured reddish brown body with tiny head that even couldn’t stay up long. White grapes, some caramel aroma, slightly sourish and vinous. Bitter and very slightly sour flavor rather than sweet, some caramel and wood. Thin bodied with very short, interestingly, sweetish caramel finish. Shows also some bitterness here. Fine in a special way but oh so watery.

armando629 (2408) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 9, 2011
0,5 l can from a swedish food store of an IKEA.
Amber-reddish beer with a small lacing off white head. Caramel and malt both in the aroma and flavor, some mild hop and fruitiness. Drinkable but you cannot say any exciting about this beer...

Tja, vad ska man säga? Ger mig inte in på vad den doftar eller smakar, mer än att den smakade ok och doftade ok och det får räcka. Ett helt ok julöl, men inte mer, så kan man sammanfatta detta öl.

Abio (1569) - Waasland, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2010
0.5L can. Pours out brown-redish. Medium head, colapse pretty soon to a small one, sticks ok to the glass. Smell is earthy sour-sweet, caramel, lots of fruits. Taste is red fruits, earthy, spices. Not bad, expected worse. Taste is sweet. Had worse beers for sure.
