UPDATED: JAN 12, 2019 Can @ Toranomon Hills tasting. Brown pour without too much foam there. Bit cloudy. Toasty nutty nose with a light tart edge. Raisins and dark dried fruits. Tastes sweet, some chocolate there but also tart and with light cocoa. Raisin cookie character really there, not too sweet either, quite nice actually. Dry.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2019 Pours clear dark amber. Aroma of bred, raisins. Taste is malty, roasted, bread. Idiosynkrasie (9560) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2019 355ml can. Almost black, dark chestnut colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Spicy, slightly fruity and nutty, chocolately, dark malty aroma, predominant notes of cinnamon, hints of dried fruit, cherry, raisin, prune, hints of chocolate, chocolate cookies, vanilla. Taste is slightly soapy spicy, fruity and chocolately dark malty, notes of cinnamon with a soapy touch, hints of milk chocolate, dried fruit, raisin, cherry, plum, a touch of ginger and vanilla. Slightly unbalanced (cinnamon overload), works nevertheless still well in the nose, but reveals a mismatch in taste that leads to a soapy effect. Iznogud (6230) - CROATIA - DEC 30, 2018
