Ibrew2or3 (6985) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2012
On tap at the Pilgrim Hotel in Soest – Westphalia, Germany in the Pilgrim Hotel’s own glassware where it has a clear deep amber body supporting a full tall mocha like head. The faint aroma offers up vague glimpses of dark fruity esters and little else. The taste is slightly punchy with carbonation and it unveils some caramel malts, a hint of roasted malts and then growing into a mild level of prune and plum like sweet dark fruity esters. Nice flavor that went well with the meal.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle @ Weihenstephaner, Freising. Clear, dark red brown appearance with a tan head. Fairly mild, a touch fruity, a bit nutty aroma. A bit toasty grainy malty, light fruity cracker flavor. Not bad but a bit disappoint=ing.

Jado (545) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2012
Poured a clear brown with red highlights and a thin off-white head. There wasn’t much on the nose. The taste is driven by malts, with some dried fruit and caramel characters coming through. Carbonation is pretty light. The body is solid, but this is very easy drinking. Could definitely go for another.

Leighton (11308) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
Tap at Weihenstephaner, Berlin. Pours clear auburn with a rich and creamy, sturdy off-white head. Light toasted malts in the nose with subtle dark fruit notes. Medium sweet flavor with berries, big raisins, some toast, herbal and leafy bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Slightly dirty bitter bite to finish, then sweet raisins, dry toast, and faint caramel. Well balanced. Very solid beer in a lovely setting.
