Andy_ (1000) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2015
500 ml bottle @ Prague. Originally rated 2015-04-22
Dark copper colored, almost black beer with big persistent beige head leaving lacing. Aroma has chocolate, toffee, vanilla, dark fruits, dark bread and mämmi. Flavor has chocolate, raisins, fresh fruitiness, light roastiness and little coffee. Palate is thin with strong carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste has licorice, roasted malts, bread, toffee and dark fruits. Rich aroma and flavor but helplessly too thin for this kind of stuff. Still good.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2004
Bottle. Slightly richer dunkel, but very soft. Slightly roasty/toasty, with caramelly malt, pretty simple, but well balanced, with some bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent.

Sigmund (5799) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 4, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought at Pivni Galerie, Prague. Typical dunkel reddish brown colour, large lasting off-white/beige head. Moderate malty aroma, notes of caramel and leather, maybe some dark fruits too. Low carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel, malty sweet with notes of molasses, minimal bitterness. Nice enough to drink, but I’d really like some more hops to balance the sweetness. Must be another beer for the target group "convalescents and nursing mothers".
