Bottle. An amber beer with some floaties, and a beige head leaving nice lacings. Caramel-sweet aroma with some spicyness, maybe lacking complexity, but quite nice. The flavor is sweet,with dried fruits, spices and bitterness. Effervescent, full-bodied beer, quite sticky in the mouth. A nice one. (080412)

Bottled (BB 06/2008)
Dark brown color, nice creamy tanned head. Strong metal and lemon in the nose same time with caramel and prunes. Medium-bodied - a bit empty, carbonated. Strange metallic flavor also. Otherwise quite enjoyable: fruity but dry with hints of licorice, late hoppyness and some fruits and roasted malts.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber-burgundy colour. Aroma is light, with treacle notes and a slight peach fruitiness. The body is light, but offers a vibrant character. Toffee and light orange notes abound, but are drowned out by too much alcohol in the finish.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Citti, Flensburg. Pours a clear redish brown with a BIG beige bubbly head - filling up most of my tulip glass. Aroma has dark dried fruits, and a little toffee. Quite low in carbonation compared to the giant head. Flavour is surprisingly roasted with an undertone of raisins and plums. There is a definite dark bitterness to the end - perhaps a little chocolate even.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. ceramic bottle. Aromas of sweet dark fruits and caramel malt. Near opaque color, but brilliant ruby red using halogen. Beige head that frothed and laced. Medium bodied. Mild carbonation. Sweet berry and raisin flavors. As the sweetness leaves, a mild bitter arises. The finish begins sweet, but as the sugars rinse away, a mild bitter stays. Dark fruits come and go. Very drinkable brew.
