Bottle poured. Cloudy amber brown with a generous frothy tan head and great lacing. Earthy aroma with hints of cherry and noticeable floral hops. Light body with a sweet creamy texture. Beer is sweet with a satisfactory aftertaste. All in all a solid beer.

Moravius (572) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
Flasche (75 cl) vom Bierzwerg-Onlineversand, 1 Jahr gelagert. - Tiefes Rotbraun, leicht trüb. - Herrlich komplexe Nase mit fruchtig-würzigem dunklem Malz und leicht weiniger Fruchtigkeit. - Im Antrunk volles dunkles aber nicht schweres Malz mit Röstnoten, aufgelockert durch würzige Noten und blasse, herbe Fruchtigkeit (Mandarine). Gut rezent, schlank. Trockener, fruchtig-herber Abgang, zart säuerlich und mit einem Hauch von Marzipan. - Ausgezeichnetes Dubbel mit ungewöhnlicher aber angenehmer würziger Herbe. Stark aber nicht süß, schön herb und erfrischend. Bei Erwärmung wird es noch reicher und komplexer.

bastarda (103) - Freiburg, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
Courtesy of bartlebier, thanks a lot. Earthy mineral aroma, some white pepper, warming up to some fruitier notes, roasted malts showing up, very well hidden abv, great drinkability with more roasted malt flavours, under layers of ripe sour cherries leaning into marzipan with a hint of bitter almonds, ending with a subtle sourish note over a layer of earthy peppery yeast aromas. Beautiful.

Kauge (256) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle (€ 3). BB 9-12-2015. Very murky and dark reddish brown colour with expectedly massive beige head. Retains, laces. Nose is very sweet, caramelised sugar, nondescript fruits (kinda like tutti-frutti), plum skin, yeast and malts, a note of alcohol too. Later acquires a gluey note. Taste is caramel and toffee sweet, dark fruits, a kind of plum wine note there, bubblegum, malts, alcohol only hintingly present, mixed in with those plum wine notes. Quite some bitterness too, increasing in the finish. More bitter as it warms. Dry on the palate, body and carbonation just right. Good drinkability despite the 7%. It’s among my favourite widely distributed beers.
