Light copper body, very nice creamy head. Herbal, creamy head, some toast, touch farmhouse like funk, bready. Some wood. Very nice mouth feel, excellent round and full flavoured malt malts. Great unique taste. Both historical and very modernistic feel. A characterful and daringly brewed ale with loads of flavour. Love it, big surprise.

Léger ambré, col fin blanc-cassé.
Arôme est plaisant au nez bien malté, grillé, et caramel, rétro sur une pointe de fruité rouge.
Palais est malté, caramel, léger houblonné qui ajoute cette touche d’amertume. Petit côté grillé, sucre caramélisée persiste et franchement bien réalisé. Garde aussi ce profil fruité rouge, malté pour une bière complexe facile à boire avec ses 7%. charule (2288) - New York, New York, USA - APR 16, 2013

Bottle from a trade. Many thanks! Dark hazy orange colour, beige foam. Sweet nose, notes of caramel and dark fruit. Bittery hoppy finish. Nice! CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle shared by Noodleuser: pours a clear dark copper amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny hoppy nose with lightly sweet biscuity malty notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet dark caramel notes with a smooth grassy hoppy bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Zlotta (3737) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle at RBBWG 2016 in Antwerpen, bottled in December 2014. Sweetish-malty aroma of caramel, honey and vanilla. Sweetish-malty taste of caramel, honey and vanilla, followed by a short, slightly bitter, spicy and slightly alcoholic finish. Medium body, slightly creamy to oily mouthfeel. Nice! kraddel (8762) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2016
Sampled at RBBWG16 . Thnx for sharing ! Pours clear, dark amber. Small white head. Smell is malty, taste is bitter, sharp grains ( ambermalts ). OK GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
750mL. Clear tea amber pour with yeast floaties. Weak head formation. Nose is nutty, hoppy, mild maple, dark cherry, prune. Taste is again quite hoppy for style, even piney, mild maple, orange candies. A bit medicinal with spruce, pine, orange cough syrup. Not cloying or sticky, quite the hop bomb for style. More in the imperial red category than Old Ale.
