Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, reddish color with a small beige head that fades away quickly. Smell of aspartame and artificial sweeteners. Flavor is very artificial, full of notes of diacetyl, aspartame again. Yuck! Best steer clear... Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2012
33cl bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Dark red to purple to dark brown color, small off-white to beige head that diminishes instantly. Smell and taste malts, sweetness and animal food. Not good. Low body, low to medium carbonation. DutchDrebus (6193) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle thx to myself @ home. Ruby red to brown colour with no head. Smells sweet, sugary, malty, some red fruits and raisins. Tastes sugar water, full on malty.. Like a German malt drink. Soft carbo, thin body. Me no likey. McTapps (6976) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep brown-black colour with steady and smoothy head. Very creamy texture. Taste of rich malt, bittersweet chocolate and some mild hops. Very sweet but nice though. MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. After starting my oud bruin-life with a heineken the day before I had high hopes in that one. Well, I expected a nice Malzbier with some sweetnes and alcohol. I got a not sweet enough Malzbier with not enough malt and too much alcohol (which I couldn´t taste at all). Just mediocre.

Bottle of 300 ml at home. ABV is 3.5%. It pours a very dark brown, non transparent beer with a thin, brownish head that dissapears slowly but steadily.
Aroma is sweet, slighty fruity, maybe raisins (?)
Taste is also very sweet, I get some caramel flavour and it leaves behind, after each seep a very thin sour aftertaste that combines well with the overall sweetness.
On the body is quite thin, carbonation is almost non existent but I believe it has a high drinkability. Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2012
Ein Malzbier, dass recht vollmundig und nicht so klebrig ist. Für 3,5% Alk. absolut empfehlenswert!

Delicious, sweet, mild brown beer. Would be a perfect dessert beer with a cake or pie. dark brown with almost no head. Sweetness of prunes and raisins. Different style and unique to the Netherlands.... deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - JUL 11, 2012
33cl bottle @home.
Thin off white head. Clear dark amber pour. Nice enough but a bit too sweet. No discernable bitterness. rok1024 (1272) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUN 26, 2012
