Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is sugary malty, slightly spicy, grainy and a bit roasted. Flavor is very sweet and decently spiced. A bit dusty and with some cardboard. Slightly alcoholic. Intense, but out of balance. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2012

Deer red brown colour on a crystal clear body, with a tall and thick tan head sitting on top. Very good retention.
Aroma mostly of caramel, malts, old straw.
Taste also of caramel, light toffee, malts. Quite sweet.
Thin body, carbonation is a bit high. Sticky on the palate.
