Bottle 0,5l bought at Tesco Kensington Feb 08. Dark brown - almost black colored. A large creamy head when poured from a distance. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt & coffee. Well rounded roasted impression. Sweet bitter finish. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2008
(Bottled) Very dark ruby brown with a medium, firm and tanned, mostly fading head. Toffee-caramely aroma with some strawberries and dark fruit. Flavor of caramely, lightly roasted maltiness, dark fruit, low bitterness, hints of blackberry, slightly metallic finish. Medium-bodied, slicky palate, medium carbonation. Clearly some effort has been put into this, but the result is still quite dull and boring. I wonder why there are pictures of hops in the label, as I couldn’t find any inside...

500ml bottle bought at Cornelius Beer and Wine in Edinburgh. Pours a deep, russet coloured topped by a light brown, frothy head. Both smell and taste have got a malty character, slightly roasted and moderately sweet. Medium bodied and soft carbonated [24.10.2008] rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2010
Pours reddish black with big beige head; aroma of roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee with strong sweet baked notes and touch of berries; medium body, quite a low carbonation; flavor is slightly roasted with touch of caramel sweetness and sourness of berries, mild bitterness in the finish.

Pours opaque black with a decent cream head. The nose is a mixture of mild chocolate and biscuit flavours. The taste confirms that this is somewhere between a bitter and a stout. The palate is medium to rich in structure and texture and the finish is not bad - it kind of cleans. Overall, not bad but a bit ’caught between styles’ for me.

Pours dark red color with a small head. Aroma of caramel, ripe fruits, some sweet malts and toffee. Flavor of caramel malts, ripe fruits and hay. Decent.
Bottle, 500ml. A dark black colour with a large brown head. Aroma is malty with cherry and floral hops. Taste is roasted malt with cocoa, a little floral hop and some hint of coriander. A burnt, citric, herbal finish. Nice, but not outstanding. joergen (28108) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2007
Clear red brown coloured with an off white head.
Fruity aroma of malts and caramel.
Light roasted flavour of fruits, caramel and hops.
Hoppy finish. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Dark brown with a red hue and a creamy head. This mix between a Porter and an Old Ale has a sweet aroma with notes of roasted malt, caramel and coffee. The flavour has sweetness, notes of roasted malt, light coffee, caramel, candy sugar and dried fruits. The mix is OK, just not one I would buy again.
