DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Pours a deep, reddish-brown, with an ample, creamy head. Mild, spicy hop aroma, plenty of mellow roasted malt and some root or bark accents. Buttery, sweet flavor, smoothly carbonated. Finish is OK, clean but, undistinguished. Overall, a nice, easy drinking beer.

YigSvartka (182) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
Opaque dark brown. Minimally sized beige head. Pleasantly potent aroma containing notes of chocolate, caramel, malt, dried berries and licorice. Full bodied, silky smooth, and creamy. Absolutely delectable combination of flavours consisting of chocolate, roast, caramel, malt, cherry, licorice, alcohol, and vanilla. Amazingly complex beer.

tekstr1der (110) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2015
Wow. No faults here. Perhaps itís too smooth? This miracle beverage pours very deep, pretty mahogany with thin off-white top. The aromas of plum, molasses, and malty goodness are about as good as it gets. Almost donít want to drink it. Yeah right...the same delightful notes carry through into the flavors. The mouthfeel is creamy and perfectly under-carbonated. I could drink this by the gallons. My only conceivable complaint? Could be a little stronger. But, thatís silly.

zimbo (680) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2015
Dark brown with orange highlights. Nose of chocolate& dark fruits. On the palate figs more chocolate earth with an autumnal sous bois quality. Mealy and rich but not at all overly sweet or heavy. Balanced and supple. Gorgeously beautiful. Love it.

EvanFriend (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2015
Very malt heavy, as to be expected for the style. Flavors of wood, caramel, a small hint of smoke, and coffee. Good beer.

kajser27 (157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 28, 2015
Dark brown with ruby hue, small but lasting beige creamy head. Aroma is of caramel malt, toffee, toasted bread, bready yeast. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, toffee, nuts, some dark fruit, toast, roasted and sweet bready finish. Alcohol very well hidden, a small amount of acidity in the nose and less in the taste. Medium to full bodied, bit creamy, medium carbonation.

Xstream (192) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
O man, this is one hell of a beer. Malty, rye with Caramel in a balance thatís just delicious. Rich, luscious sweet, but not too much. Great!

60minuteman (990) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle from Beer Shop Malvern. Roasted, high ABV, earthy and minty malts totally dominate here. Excellent dynamic. Dark fruit, caramel and roasted barley included. Pretty good stuff.

Zlotta (218) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 16, 2015
0,5 l bottle from bier-deluxe, best before 28/10/2015. Clear, very dark ruby with a medium large, frothy, very slowly diminishing, tan head. Intense aroma of raisins, prunes, molasses and slight hints of chocolate. Sweetish taste of raisins, prunes and molasses, followed by even more sweetness towards the finish. Medium long, chocolatey, minimally bitter finish with a pleasant, gentle alcoholic and warming note. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice sipper, but not as special as expected. Still very tasty and pleasant on the palate, but not overly complex.
