Brown head. Half-sweet. You can taste the yeast. Decent beer. Best "bruin/brown" (brune) bier I’ve had. Can also taste minerals in this one.

Pours brown with a few floties and a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, toffee, alcohol and dried fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm, toffee and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Kosmokrator (516) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Ale scura, schiumosa, profumata e dolciastra; note di caramello, frutta candita, spezie e cioccolato si distinguono nell’aroma e nel gusto. Corposa, liquorosa ma tutto sommato di facile beva. Una strong ale classica ma intensa, da riprovare alla prima occasione.

RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottled. Pours brown in color with a frothy off-white head. Bready, dark bread, malts in aroma, some yeast notes as well. Same bready malty flavor. One dimensional, nothing more nothing less.

Sweet flavour, full bodied with a soft carbonation.

olio (6508) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013
75 cl bottle. 2007 vintage.
Seems to be ok, no contamination detected. Sourish fruits, dark berries, yeast and spices on the nose. Same thing on the flavor with toffee and brown sugar also. Quite nice and nicely aged.
Maybe a 4.0 rating for this vintage bottle.
75 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20090404.
Pours dark copper color with a medium head. Aroma of caramel, dark malts, ripe fruits and spices. Flavor of spices, dark malts, dark ripe fruits and some yeast.
