Brown with clear red shine, big bubbled head stays long, leaves laces; Huge nose, deep, first loads of grapefruit (like the carbonation blows in your face), later notes of soil, dark baked white bread, loads of character; Quite bitter/ acidy body, a bit to the watery thin side; Long but again watery thin finish that has a chewy bitterness and the same aroma as the nose. I find that the character of nose and body isn’t all that coherent. MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 9, 2006
(bottle, with many thanks to joss!) Clear dark ruby brown colour with a stable foamy beige head. Sweet toasted malt aroma with caramel, chocolate and herbal hops. Sweetbitter flavour, medium body, very smooth mouthfeel. Sweet toastmalty taste with caramel and herbal hops; medium dry lingering toasty and hopbitter finish with a lasting aftertaste. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Tasty, with a hint of spice. Pours a golden-brown with good head. Finish was okay, but not as long or good as I was hoping. pivnizub (10912) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle (best regard to joss): Dark amber coloured with red sparks, small, stable beige head; stronger aroma of roasted malt with a touch of coffee (almost a smoked aroma); slightly sweetish flavour with some bitterness in the wings; slightly sweetish, but later dry "roasted" malty and bitter finish. A light bodied goodie......... entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Brown pour wiht huge head boiling over the glass. Dark fruit, roast malt aroma. Weird smokiness to the flavor that I didn’t enjoy, long lingering finish. Stronger flavor than I expected.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 Pours a nice brown color with a large fizzy head that diminishes quickly. Has an aroma of sweet malts, coffee and caramel. Flavor is malty. Slight smokiness to it along with caramel and dark fruits. The mouth is fairly thin and fizzy but refreshing as well. Pretty good. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2006
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a smallish foamy head. Aromas are very malty. Sour malts with some yeastiness too. Prunes too. Smoke was the first thing I got on the flavor. But it was minimal. Very roasty malty flavor. More dark fruits. A touch of spiciness on the finish and a bit of dust. Very good Ratman197 (15636) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2006
