ganache (6088) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Swing-top by 28.12.2012. Nose is very sweet toffee, deep ruby pour with a rocky tan head. Taste is relatively dry with red fruit around the edges, caramel and toffee in the middle, just a bit of grit and chocolate to give some heft to the medium body. There’s a mild bitterness that rounds things out. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2012

Dunkler Karamellgeruch, süßlich. Vollmundig malzig-kaffeeartiger Antrunk, hier bereits trocken. Dann flacht das Aroma ab, das Malz wird ebenfalls trocken, die Kaffeenote dagegen bitterer. Deutlich weniger vollmundig als zuvor. Mehr Konstanz wäre schön! 13/9/10/8//9

The flavour has notes of roasted malt, light coffee, dark syrup, a little green bell-pepper, and the finish is slightly dry with a hint of coffee. jfb (6984) - GERMANY - APR 2, 2011
