BenDover (203) - Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours a deep ruby-brown, with ridiculous amounts of dense tan foam that leaves behind some nice lacing. Aroma is of roasty malts, bittersweet chocolate, maybe cherries and figs. Flavor is sweet and malty, some coffee, a noticeable alcohol burn, and turning bitter and roasty at the end.

Bamsen78 (3315) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear very dark ruby with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of fruit and caramel malt, with veggie notes. Sweetish flavour of fruit, caramel and malt, with bitter, hoppy and possibly roasty notes. Bitter aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence. Okay, enjoyable, but rather too veggielike and fruity for my taste.
