33cl foiled bottle pours with a clear mahogany colored body that has ruby red hues and supports a thin tan head. The mild aroma offers up caramel malts, whiffs of cherries and chocolate malts and then faint vague hoppiness. The taste is similar with caramel malts mixing with some sweet cherries and raisins and then picking up a dash of chocolate malts toward the finish. It gets a little metallic from time to time (maybe the metal foil has leached through the glass into the beer? Na, kidding). Decent.

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - DEC 21, 2013
(33 cl bottle) dark brown, opaque, with a moderate beige head. Aroma is moderately roasted, with hints of dark chocolate, dark bread, licorice, coke. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Medium body. OK. I’d prefer ist less sweet and/or more aromatic.

kappldav123 (5158) - GERMANY - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass very dark, almost black. Starts soft malty, not as strong as exspected, modest dry. Mild roasty background. Some fruity hints of raisins. Finish mild-malty with some earthy notes. Not bad!

Pours deep brown with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is of molasses, toasted grain. Taste is malty-sweet up front with a little bit of roasty notes, but kind of diminished. Finish is indistinct.
