Good brown redish body, with scarce withe head, great aroma mixture of roasted malts, the taste is gently bitter wit a pleased end of caramel and alcohol, a good example of Duthc ales. DuffMan (10728) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2008

Brown beer with thin beige head. Flakes of yeast is not very temptating. Aroma is very sweet: mallts and sugar. Flavour is not aroma-like but sweetness is appropriate, roasted and rather bitter. Surprisingly watery to drink because sugary aroma and flavour normally makes body to more dence. Changes better when beer is warmer. This is too typical beer without anything personal. wyzzywyz22 (2752) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2008
Bottle, de Wildeman, Amsterdam. Dark brown colour, thin white lingering head. Malty,chocolate, raisin.aroma. Taste is more of the same, quite sweet and smooth, but lacks a knockout punch somehow. austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2008
Dark brown, small beige head. Lightly malty aroma with some spices and pear. Flavor is quite syrupy with little peppery spices and fruits, mainly pear. Finishes drier with little bittering hops. Light to medium bodied, a bit sticky palate. Thin and overly sweet. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2008
Brown and transparent with minimal head. Brown bread aroma with some yeast and a touch of corn. Slightly sweet with some bready malts. Some sweetness and brown sugar but otherwise quite bland.
