Bottle with a new label where 2017 also is present and alcohol content 5.3% from Alko, Finland.
Semi lasting fluffy brown head.
Clear dark red color with a small but nice sparkle.
Very nice Munich malty aroma and taste. Very well fermented to give a dry malty taste with just a tiny malty sweetness and a balanced body and bitterness.
A very enjoyable beer that is perfect for mild meat dishes. Tranquillity (2570) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2017
Bottled. Clear brown body, big beige head. The aroma has malts and some berries. The taste is watery with some sweetness.

Draught at The Ave, 1/14/17.john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Dark mahogany with ebony tones, high clarity and a light tan head atop showing moderate retention.
Lots of chocolate and caramel in the nose signifies it’s going to be quite malty. Very light minerality, hints of roast, vanilla and a bit of stale coffee-like oxidation. Not much balance, being basically all base malt-driven with no hop notes or any other acidity to speak of (no dark fruit, melanoidins, etc...). No alcohol noted.
Sweet, rather insipid and not overly balanced. Caramel is sticky and dominant, with vanilla, chocolate and moderate oxidation lingering on the finish. Some light roast attempts to balance but fails miserably. Too sweet, stale and rather lifeless, to boot.
Bottle. Dark brown in colour, with reddish tinge. Malty (quite chocolatey, slightly roasty, some caramel). Fruit (berries). Sweet with slightly sour edge. Not bad.
minihame2 (790) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Clear, dark brown colour with a foamy tan head. Malty aroma, dark bread and some of that cellar aroma as well. It’s a bit light on the taste but it has decent malty flavours. The finish is a little bit watery. Light body, low but soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Alright.
