33 cL bottle. Pours deep reddish with a crispy and dense slight orange head. Aroma is dark malty, sweet and complex yeasty spiced. Heavy carbonation. Strong fruity and alcohol lifted initial flavour. Followed by a thick roasted and cane sugarish flavour. Has a nice blend between sour and sweet notes. Warming finish in which the dark malt notes keep lingering.

The aroma is sweet malty with clear notes of yeast. The color is a hazy dark amber and it has a fine head. The flavor is malty and complex with caramel and yeast. The alcohol runs prickling over the tongue and gives it a good mouthfeel. A lovely beer. joergen (29353) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2005

Bottled. Dark brown colour, huge brown head. Aroma is hops, malts, caramel and some earthy notes. Flavour is sweetish sour fruits, caramel, earth, hops and slight roasted malts in finish. Complex beer with a rather creamyish foamy palate. Hides the alcohol quite well, mainly the alcohol shows as a nice warming feeling when entering the stomach.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Cloudy amber with giant light tan head. Aroma of pumpernickel bread with raisins. Taste of malt and licorice. Complex and full of character. 4.1 cgarvieuk (26077) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2008
2008 bottle on 21 December 2012, courtesy of Greg at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown - thanks! Aroma has prunes, raisins, dates, figs. Taste has winter fruit, figs, prunes. A totally different beer.
Bottle at home ... Lovely scarlet red ... nice firm off white head ... week sweet liquorice nose ... Fizzy slightly tart sour ... definite nip on the tongue as Linus_Stick said ... liquorice in linger ... It foams in the mouth .. which in a lot of ways hides the flavour ... a little grapefruit dryng in linger omhper (25800) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2003 Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. madmitch76 (25791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011
Hazy, reddish brown. Woody nose. Dry and hoppy solidly malty. Peppery, rounded mouthfeel and some vinou qualities. Salty bitterish finish.
Old rating, bottled.
Deep ruby and lively with rich, firm head. Vinuous nose. Sweet and lean with rich toffee flavour and some lactic acidity. The finish has notes of cherries and a short sting of bitter hops. Complex and really tasty. (9/5/8/4/16)
