Mild flavours of caramel, very smooth, not too bad a drop. Could drink a coffee on a hot day.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2013
Deep red/brown, thin cream head. Aromas of roast malt, caramel, brown sugar and a slight whiff of metallic lager yeast. Nice flavours of caramel and roasty malt with a residual sweetness. Hollow mid palate with a touch of bitterness towards the back of the palate. Good with pork knuckle. Perhaps just a touch too sweet by itself.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
50cl bottle from the brewery. Pours a deep brown colored body with a slight reddish hue. inch thick, creamy and frothy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat sweet and bready caramels with a decent roast and some dark fruits. Flavor is similar. Decently roasted and bitter with a bready, somewhat sweet caramel backing. A few dark fruits and a touch of oxidation before this finishes dry and leaves a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a soft, active carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkel. Fairly roasty and bitter, but sweet enough to balance. Not bad.

RichardW (1551) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle, beers of Europe. Pours a deep reddy mahogany colour. Sweet bready malt aroma, red berry flavours, fizzy palate, with a caramel and brown sugar. I think it gets better with progress, perhaps could do with a bit more body but otherwise another good beer from a fine brewery.

Grzesiek79 (3307) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Dobre, ale przyznam sie ze spodziewalem sie piwa sporo lepszego. Piwo jest dosc aromatyczne, zlozone w smaku, karmelowe, daktylowe i spokojnie ulagodnione na finiszu. Nut chmielnych nie ma ale wiadomo tu nie o to chodzi. Slodowo karmelowy smak jest tresciwy, a piana sredniej wielkosci ale w miare trwala.

Bottle. Notes of dark bread, syrup, banana, caramel and sugar. Not that drinkable.
