Underdogs88 (325) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2015
A moderate amount of malt sweetness on the aroma with light notes of fruitless. A crystal clear dark Amber appearance with an offwhite head with below average head retention. Flavor is malt forward with notes of biscuit, toast and dark caramel. Fruity esters are moderately high. Finish is dry. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's labeled as a wee heavy and a 90 schilling, but it's definitely not a wee heavy. It's a 90 schilling. It also has a little too much toast flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toffee malty aroma. No hops on the nose. Appearance is a deep amber with a long lasting white head. Crystal clear. Flavor is heavy on kettle caramelized toffee notes. No hop flavor or esters. Mouthfeel is smooth and full with medium a carbonation. Overall, a classic wee heavy, but the malt flavor is one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sudomorph (1141) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby mahogany with a thin head than fades to a ring. Aroma has notes of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, slight alcohol, and is mildly woody. Taste is balanced well with notes of non-sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and a bit more of that woodiness. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a fuller, more robust mouth feel and a mildly dry finish. Overall pretty tasty with a solid malt forward flavour.

rauchbier (3870) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle, from Bargain Booze. Deep red brown, thin short lived off white head and good condition. Big fruity nose with hints of figs, strawberry, burnt toffee and a faint tang of citrusy orange. Soft and sweet in the mouth with figs and toffee, some earthy background bitterness and a muted mulled wine spiciness mingled with hints of orange peel. Warming finish with some berry skin bitterness and a sticky sweet toffee note lingering, some retronasal alcohol reminding you it needs sipping rather than swigging.
