Bottle: Poured a dark black/brown with a light brown head. The aroma was floral and nuts. The taste was awesome sweet tangy nuts and caramel malt flavor. Cybercat (5834) - Georgia, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Beautiful rich brown color with a thick and persistent head. Aroma is distinctive and has a hint of alcohol in it. This beer has a strong flavor and quite a nip to it, but it is still smooth and pleasant on the tongue, with a smoky undertone. This is a beer to be sipped, not guzzled. starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Hazy rosy brown body, creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel and some alcoholic fruit. Flavour is sweet and alcoholic, with a relatively light palate. Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Pours dark ruby color with nice 2 finger head. No lacing. Smell is yeast and dark fruit. Taste is a nice dark fruit with lots of yeast and a hint of carmel. Finishes with dry woody hops. Slight alcohol burn at lower temperatures goes away with some warming. Perfect compliment to a pot roast. Recommended. muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours mahogony with lots of floaties and a tall bubbly head. Aroma is vinous, lots of sour flemish-esque notes as well, some sweet candied raisin notes finish it out. The flavor is complex as well, almost just like the aroma would lead you to belive, with a very warm alcohol finish.

Very very similar to the tremmens but with a darker color and only slightly deeper flavor. Definitely worth having a bottle. norushjohnnie (19) - Sister Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Not my favorite style but very good.
Color is deep reddish amber with a big brown-orange head. Aroma is primarily raisins and alcohol, big and strong. Flavors raisin, plum, and a hint of burnt malts at the finish. Interesting acidity, not what I’m used to. Bitterness and alcohol warmth finish it up. The mouth feel is a little bit watery but I felt the carbonation was ideal. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAR 8, 2007
750 ml bottle from 2004. Dark brown pour with a nice cramy head that lasted. Aromas were dark fruit, raisin, molasses, caramel, vanilla. flavors were similar with a lot of alcohol warming. Somewhat sweet with nice dusty flavor. Good Beer. TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2007
very good beer, offered to me by a friend who got it in a trade. Enjoyable flavor and after taste. kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Aroma of mild hops, metal, and yeast. Light mouthfeel with noticeable alcohol presence and a dry, bittersweet finish.
