750 c&c from LetsPour.com. Pours very hazy orange amber with a off-white head. Aroma is caramel with some rather pungent dark fruit. Full bodied or nearly so. Flavor is smooth dark caramel with moderately dark fruit - it is much closer to dry than sweet. For some reason it seems a little boozy. Think I’m picking up a very little metallic aspect. Overall a nice drink. Ratman197 (14838) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2011

Bottle courtesy of Brandon. Thanks! Dark red orange appearance with an off white head. Toasty, caramel-toffee, a touch roasty-burnt, slightly belgian aroma.

Cloudy orange color, white head. Banana, sweet taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Phenolic scent.
Pours hazy reddish with lacing white head, bottle thanks to Brandon. Aroma has notes of some slight caramel, spice, some sour grain, touch of biscuit. Taste is an interesting combination of spice, nuts, some slight caramel, toffee, some slight earth notes, finishing bitter and slightly dry. Not bad. onceblind (9664) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Very light amber, with a big fluffy head. Smelled like fresh morning dew, with light cocoa notes. Taste profile hits fresh, with light brown malt, caramel, and tart fruity yeast tones. Light and refreshing, but flavorful; like an assertive dunkel. Pretty eccentric. Ernest (7695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2011

Not much going on in the aroma, but it’s ok. Kinda sour and overly sweet in the mouth. Overall average. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2012

Turbid reddish pour - pretty fizzy, but doesn’t kick up too much of a head - aroma has some odd meaty/smoky phenols, yeasty/doughy character, very mild esters - flavor is slightly nutty, with quite a bit of the same smoke/meatiness from the nose - light acidity - nothing all that dubbelish about it, but I guess it isn’t terrible.
