RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Pours an extremely dark ruby with a tan head that rises and does not stick around long but leaves a thick lacing on the way down. Nose is almost like old wood. Like a cleaned out old attic. Dusty and void of life. A mild bit of malt character there, but not a whole lot. Flavor is smooth and even. Nothing real crazy going on here. Thin malt influence. Has the body, but not a lot of character to follow. Feel is standard. A bit thin really. Drinkable, sure. It is a decent brew. Nice to try. But no home run to run back to.

Fin (8270) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle picked up from the Dodgy Deli’ Cowley Road Oxford, consumed outside my tent at Towersey Festival Poured Reddy brown with impressive beige bubbly head which quickly dissappeared. Nice aroma, some yeast but also very definate raosted overtones there and good bitter chocolate. Taste was sweet and malty but very good and with nice soft mouthfeel, bit nutty, even smokey but jolly decent.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2007
Clear dark brown with a bubbly tan head. Aroma of plum pudding fruits, gum tree bark, cocoa and caramel. Medium body with an outstandingly smooth carbonation. Flavours of light chocolate, caramel, raisins, slight oxidation and pine. Malty finish, a bit buttery too. Good stuff.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2007
Caramel and brown sugar aroma, auburn, pours a nice toffee head. Roasted malts, treacle and almonds all play a role in the taste. Medium bodied, balanced and pleasantly bitter. Very good. Thank You Radek Kliber.

Rune (9239) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2007
500ml vom Fass at the Klosterbrauerei, Weltenburg. Deep rustic brown body under a thin white head. Dark chocolate aroma. Buttery caramel come into focus followed by the taste of coarse-grain and notes of dark fruits. The quite lively carbonation gives a foamy mouthfeel (21.06.2007).

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2007
500ml. color is garnet and it pours with short off white head. light aroma overall with caramel and soft plum. nice roasty flavor with nuts and caramel making an appearance. the finish has a great hop bite and ends quite cleanly.

VilleH (31) - Vieremä, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2007
(500ml bottle) Malty, "mämminen" aroma. Brownish red appearance with a thin foam. Malty, sweet flavor, balanced and soft palate. Good but lacks of character.
