Dalle (1145) - Skrping, 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 its heavy maltyness - now I just like it.

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 (6168) - 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.

rauchbier (3867) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2002
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) - Vancouver, British Columbia, 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.

Beautiful clear red amber color with great head. Hoppy and slightly bitter aftertaste. Avarage.

notalush (5836) - Denver, 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 werent filtered and pasturized it would probably be a lot better.
