Warning! Early amateur rating! Soft and medium sweet beer. Juicy malt with a dry finish. Not bad!
Bottle @ home. After cleaning up from the gusher this poured with a slight murky brownish red, large tanned head. Aroma is very malty with some fruity and/or wine. Flavour is quite full and sweet with malt, caramel, spices. Some bitterness in the finish. Plus something weird I can’t place. Metalchopz (3445) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
Bought this 2 Litres jug with flip-top a couple of Christmas’ ago and cellared it. Pours a ruby-amber colour with an nice beige creamy head that has good retention. Mildly carbonated and lacing is left behind. Beautiful nose with fruits (on the red apple side), nut, brown sugar and darker malts. OK, maybe it was more than a couple of years... as I taste a little sourness (which I assume is not usually there). Other than that, same stuff found in the aromas. Nice hazelnut finish. As always, I do like these Christoffel brews (but with a big bottle like these, you have to find the time for it). Unfortunately, I took too long. mickmac (488) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2010
Bottle. Average sized, quickly diminishing, brown foamy head. Very strong caramel-toasty aroma. Tastes balanced with a slightly roasted bitter finish. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated.

330ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, caramel, and some honey. Poured copper/brown/ruby in color with a tiny, tan head that disappeared quickly except for around the edges. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny and small particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, caramel, and honey. Medium body. Thin, slick texture. Soft carbonation. Malt, caramel, and honey finish. Very one-dimensional. kwik-lime (1998) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
Malty with hints of nut and caramel. More hop bitterness present as you go through the glass. Quite good. HenningSR (31) - Copenhagen V, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2010

From l’autre Oeil. Pours amber/ruby. Small white head. Really, but really vinegar-ish armoa, with some plum (... old plums) notes. A hint of malt (caramel) as well. Taste was a little bit better (apple and cherries; caramel; some bitterness), but stil way too acid for me. Some might like it, but as far as I’m concerned, this is utter failure.
