A mountain of a beer, this is a chestnut red, malty, full-bodied beast with a lightly hopped aftertaste.

Kavu (4102) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2010
Pours coca cola brown with a light head. Some sweet malts in the aroma and the flavor. No hops at all. Not a bad beer as itself but it says itís an IPA and itís a very bad IPA.

22nd June 2008. Loses itís identity with a mild uninteresting malty start followed by flimsy watery hops. Not well joined up at all.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2009
0.5 L bottle from The Whisky Shop, Edinburgh. Fingerthick, lightly tanned cream head. Brilliant, nut-brown body. Dry aroma of nutty, light peppery, dark malts. Slight sweet, caramelly, toasted and light peppery malt flavor. A faint fruitiness and some sour notes. Very mildly hopped. Mid-bodied with a powdery mouthfeel. Malty-bitter, mild spicy finish. A decent and straightforward bitter.

yespr (40418) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle at YNWA. Pours dark brown with a small white head. Dark roasted and breadish aroma. Roasted breadish, light caramelish and rather dry base flavoured. Smooth roasted and beadish flavoured finish. Nice one.

thewolf (12078) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours deep ruby-red with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, some heavy DMS, subdued grassy. Light prickly carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, soft grassy hops, a bit of the same DMS. Wonderful roasted, chocolate finish. Shame about the aroma.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2009
500ml bottle. Amber with a dense off-white head; sour fruity aroma; rather thin with creamy toffee malt flavours and a dry and smoky finish. Rather basic but drinkable.
