COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

edsspoon (302) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Pours ruby red with a thick off-white head that disappears to a ring. Aroma is dark fruits, nuts and a touch of alcohol. Taste is fruity, malty, dry, very sweet and a lightly bitter aftertaste. Some hints of spice and banana. The flavour seems really nice but also very lacking and kind of watery, which is a shame.

Bue en bouteille. Belle couleur, peu de bulles. Arômes caramel et café discrets. Peu de corps donc longueur en bouche très courte.

Belle étiquette pour une bière avec tres peu de bulles, un goût assez plat, arôme de caramel, café torréfié et chocolat amer.... Disparu rapidement, ce petit tour est pas mal, mais pas assez intense pour moi..

veceo (318) - CROATIA - MAR 17, 2014
Clear dark amber color, thin white head. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Watery texture came as a unpleasant surprise. Light creamy sweetness with caramel malts at first, and light hoppy finish. I expected more from this.
