Swing-top bottle. Toffee malt aroma. Reddish brown color with minimal head. Toffee malt and grass hops flavor. Nicely made - not especially exciting though. Koelschtrinker (20208) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Malziger Antrunk, im Mittelteil deutlich würziger werdend. Hier leicht herb, auch dieser Ton wird mit der Zeit stärker, und schokoladig. Prickelnd, mild-aromatisch, im Abgang werden die meisten Aromen milder, hier noch malzig-würzig, trotz der Milde angemessen aromatisch. Die Herbe ist nun hintergründig.

bottle from a local Rewe. Hazy brown colour, mid-sized off-white head. Caramelly start, slightly sweet with a touch of honey and chocolate, also shy fruity hints. Hoppier in the finish. Smooth and easy-drinking beer. Lore (2661) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2015
reddish dark amber colour, moderate sized off-white head; aroma of bready-dried fruity and caramel notes with some minimal ash; taste is the same with sourish notes; correct beer for moderate price harrisoni (18402) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines and drunk at home. Clear dark brown red beer with a lasting cream head. It’s a little sweet if I’m honest. OK though. Some sweet malt, not much fruit, some dark fruits, not great depth but to be honest it’s fine, not as good as the Faust Schwarz before it. Not much hop, ok carbonation. Fine.

Thanks to the Doppelbock for this bottle. A very sweet smell, some ginger, light malty. Overall a nice aroma. A small off-white fizzy-creamy head, rather short lasting. The body is -no surprise-red. Startet sweet, but a few seconds later it gets a lot more bitter. The duration is rather long. The body is medium, very dry with a soft carbonation and an moderate astringent finish. A nice and interesting beer. Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2011
The beer in the glass is dark and slightly hazy. The smell is sweet and roasted malty. Starts with lots of roasted malts, slightly sweet, with hints of caramell. The aftertaste is very malty sweet. The further course gets more mild and palatable, the sweet malts grow up, very much! Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2011
500 ml bottle. Pours rather brown then red (as its name suggests) and a bit hazy. Probably a little hint of redness. Nevertheless it looks quite good because of its big and frothy head. Smells spicy, floral/grass or even a bit roasty. tastes really spicy, a bit roasty too. medium bodied and average carbonization. at the end palatable bitterness but not so much taste of the hops. quite good. mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2011
Reddish brown body. White head. Moderate lacing. Smell is sweet smokey malt. Taste is the same with notes of nuts and a mild hoppy finish. Mild carbonation with a thin creamy mouthfeel. good beer. PeatyPete (1048) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2015
Hazy dark red colour with off-white head. Aroma of caramel and dark fruit. Taste of chocolade, caramel and slightly sweet malt.
