Sandorf (50) - - JUL 21, 2012
Metallic cherryish (maybe yeast) sour aromas. Dark brown with a hint of red.cloudy,. An above average amount of tan foam. Slightly sour start, but a lightly bitter aftertaste will dominate. Agressive medium carbonation which won’t last, gentle but long finish of dark fruit coffee .Medium body.

probstblueribbon (3401) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
330 ml bottle at Central Bierhaus. Clear deep ruby mahogany with a thin tan head. Tight nose with some tangy fruitiness, lightly metallic, a little bread crust, faint dark dried fruit. Medium+ body with full, velvety carbonation. A like more than the nose, but still a restrained beer, a little dark dried fruit and brown sugar, a little bright fruitiness, light esters; fairly dry with low bitterness and a kinda vague malty finish. Weak.

janubio (567) - SPAIN - JUL 20, 2015
Dark brown colour, with red relections to the light. Small off white head taht leaves ring and lace. Aroma of dark fruits, raisins, cloves, coriander,, chocolate. Medium body and carbonation, I would like a thicker palate on this one. Taste of cloves, raisins, chocolate, sweet but a touch of bitterness. Good, but it could be a bit soft.
