Dorqui (2115) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 2, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Canned 0,50L. Creamy and adherent nut head, optimal persistence. Limpid brown color, rather fine bubbly. Determined and smooth scent with notes of coffee, braced malt and smoked wood. Enough pungent taste with a determined and extended bitter. Soft and little alcoholic final of good persistence.

turbothy (1130) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2006
Pours reddish brown with small dissipating head. Good malty aroma. Nice flavour, but tends to get a bit too sour when it warms up.

IThinkImBuzzed (18) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Bottled. Poured with a nice thick head. Aroma was a sweet malty scent. Beautiful dark brown color. The type of nice malty flavor I enjoy. Mouthfeel was nice on the tongue, but heavy down the throat; there was a thick sweet,malty aftertaste that stuck to the back of the throat long after taking a sip. Not bad at all, probably better if paired with a meal.

StueyD (1304) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2006
A dark, chocolatey brown beer with a frothy beige head. A strong toasted malt nose with sweet caramel and wheat elements towards the end. The taste is slightly bitter sweet, with malt and caramel the prominent flavours. There is a slightly winey, acetic aftertaste.

tenghave (402) - Taastrup, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 Købt på ferie i Tyskland (50 cl flaske). Øllen er en klar maghogni farvet, og har en sød brændt smag, uden at det dog bliver for brændt. Har en let bitter eftersmag. Smager af mere end øl med denne alcoholprocent normalt gør. Har ikke voldsomt meget kulsyre. Skummet er flot lysebrunt, men holder ikke ret længe.

Rastacouere (6144) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2006
Only 4 mths old 500mL surprisingly enough. Lasting foamy beige mousse covers a chestnut body with orange reflects, blooming with carbonation. First sip keeps the goodness from the aroma on, with gentle fruit acids enhancing drinkability while elegant alt-like leafy noble hops and nutty dryish malts escape anything close to heavy sweetness. As the sipping continues, you figure you’d rather keep on with heavy sips and the notion applied rewards you with delightful lacing coating the glass. The carbonation slows down as it warms, diminishing the roasty feel and accentuating the competence of the fruitiness construction - grape, plums, berries . Finishes smooth, tongue-cleansing. Light-medium body doesn’t show any wateriness, but definitely feels lagery in its leanness. Very enjoyable, well extracted malts that stretch more toward roastiness and bready toastiness than sweet caramel and bring forth deep, almost vinous pleasurable fruit notes.

mjg74 (2606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Bottled. Pours a medium amber sort of color. Sweet chocolate aroma. Some roasted maltiness as well. More sweet chocolate flavor upon the first sip. Lots of roasted malty bitterness to balance out the sweet. Finish is bitter and roasty with a hint of sweet. Nice dunkel.

thedm (4984) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 27, 2005
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and copper brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of malty sweet . Its mouth feel is initially smooth sweet malt with a lingering mellow palate and a mild sweet malt caramel aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty sweet notes and was yummy. A nice all-around session brew.
