Dark brown color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is fruity malts white a good balance. ozzatoadisback (223) - ITALY - FEB 17, 2017
Light brown, reddish hints, lots of bubbles. Average mocha head, ok retention and some lacing. Aroma shows delicate roasted malts (with a touch of ground coffee), caramel and slight fruitiness. Average intensity. Taste is obviously malty with caramel and dark bread, again a slight roasted malts note and delicate dark/dried fruit hints. Overall pleasantly sweet with just the right amount of roasted malts to bring enough balance. Slighty warming with still perfectly hidden alcohol. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation (pretty high per style i guess), quite creamy but still goes down very easy. Overall, nicely warming while still perfectly balanced and highly drinkable. Very good. SaintMatty (7603) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2017

330ml bottle. Pours out a dark brown with some ruby highlights topped with a small tan head. Nose is earthy wood pit fruit toffee grain and some booze. Taste is more of the rich malts pit fruit toast some wood and a chocolate sweetness. MrBeerFanatic (1076) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2017
My label looked different then the one pictured here (lots a blue and gold). Pours a dark red with a quick head. Aromas big caramel and toffee with some nuttiness. Flavors sweet caramel, toffee light nutty, and just a ting of alcohol. Medium sweet. Decent. madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2017

November 2016 - Bottle share at CBC Islington. Thanks to Padraig for this classic! As ’Augustiner Maximator’, 7.5%. Dark reddy brown, translucent with a dense foamy tan head, leaving thick lacing. Aroma is toffee and quite a lot of Horlicks. I’m a big Horlicks fan, so I like this vibe. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is dates, wheat, more Horlicks, some white pepper and booze in the finish. A tasty beer, maybe a touch thin-bodied. (3.6)
