davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 16, 2008
Appearance: dark amber to dark mahogany color. Great head, lasting with beige color. Aroma: intensive in yeast smells and dark-malts. Liquory aromas; too raisins and banana reminiscences. Flavor: very yeasty and toast-malts taste. Caramel, sugar, wood, toffee, dark-raisins and, maybe, figs touches. Slight clove reminiscences. Light dry medicinal hoppy final. Palate: medium body. Medium to high carbonation. Beer with medium complexity taste.

Pour is dark chestnut with a thick tan head. Aroma is crazy spicey...cinnamon and other christmas potpourri shit. Flavor is similar...but with some belgian candy sugar and some sweet bready yeasty malt. Mouthfeel is kind of carbonated and a bit light.

Clay bottle - Pours flat deep clear red with a small thin head, aroma is of dried fruits (but faint) and the flavour is sweet fruity and malty. Nice but a little flat.

Ceramic bottle poured into tulip glass produced a nice tan head and dark brown body. Taste and aroma of fruits (raisins/plums), spices, caramel, and hints of chocolate. Smooth with a nice fnish.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2005
Bottle. Dark chestnut reddish hue with light-tan bigbubbled head. Phenolic aroma. Flavor is dry with some chocolate and slight roast. Heavily carbonated and a bit thinbodied. As I poured the last glass, huge, sticky lumps of sediment came into the glass. I like my yeast, but not in these excessive, disgusting looking, quantities.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 15, 2005
Rich, malty aroma. Dark brown appearance with decently thick beige head. Smokey mocha flavor. Sticky mouth feel, like there’s a substantial amount of sugars hiding in there. An enjoyable beer.
