Brown to dark amber color; creamy head. Malty aroma, and caramel. Strong caramel taste, with some hops, but too much caramel (bitter) to be good. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown with minmal head. Quite malty with a delicate choclate edge. Raisins and dates perhaps. Low bitterness but enough to keep things in balance. Medium bodied. Three years ago I would have loved this for it’s heavy maltyness - now I just like it. HenrikSoegaard (14237) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle. Creamy white excellent fully lasting head. Nice redorange colour. OK aroma and nice flavor. Very bitter finish. Oily palate. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Brown with ruby highlights, quite clear, decent head faded fast. Aroma was a bit roasty, with a touch of apple and sulfur. Flavor matched the aroma, and some chocolate notes came through as well. Struck me more as a bitter than a strong ale. Perhaps it is better on cask. TheBeerGod (6233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle. Ruby body with a small tan head. Nose is fruity (berries, light apple, hint of cherry), malt, and light wood. Light flowery note as well. Taste is malty and sweet with a dulled fruit flavor - sort of like unsweetened apple chips. Light cocoa, flowers, and some toasty notes. Body is medium with a dense carbonation. Finishes with more fruit notes, cocoa, toasty malts, light caramel and a bit of wood.

Bottled. Chestnut red low head and condition. Fruity raisin nose with a roast barley hint. Fruitcake and toast in the mouth and a swet malty finish. Doesnt seem as strong as the abv suggests. tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2005
Caramel and chocolate in the aroma. Clear dark brown with low but persistent off-white head. Caramel, chocolate and nuts in the flavour with light finishing bitterness. Medium body with fair carbonation. Bottle. Entered from notes. onystrom (1335) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2006
Beautiful clear red amber color with great head. Hoppy and slightly bitter aftertaste. Avarage. DCJack (185) - Alabama, USA - JUN 3, 2006
just fairly enjoyable
typically light palate with almost no stature or presence.
notalush (5883) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Completely clear brown pour with no real head to speak of - aroma of roasted nuts and caramel - light fruity esters, some cocoa and hazelnut in the flavor - kind of a bready, yeasty finish - decent - if it weren’t filtered and pasturized it would probably be a lot better.
