MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2014
(bottle) Clear, dark copper colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Slightly toasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, leather, a subtle fruity touch and shades of spicy hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toasty malty, slightly bready taste with caramel, shy fruity notes and spicy hops; moderately dry and bitter hoppy finish with a mildly sweet malty and toasty counterpart, accompanied by a mildly fruity aftertaste. Okay, reliable. 12.III.14

edsspoon (137) - 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..
