Koelschtrinker (20395) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 26, 2011
Mittelstarker, etwas säuerlicher sowie honigartiger Antrunk. Das Malz ist zu Beginn erkennbar, verschwindet im Anschluss aber eine Zeit lang. Mild, säuerlich getreidig, herber werdend. Erst zum Ende wieder etwas malziger, wenn auch nur begrenzt intensiv. Wenig aber erkennbar schokoladig im Abgang, Porter-ähnlich. Wenig bockig, dafür aber auch recht süffig. OK. 8/8/9/8/11/8

Bottle (thanx to Allen!): Hazy, reddish amber coloured, smaller beige foamy layer; sweet toasty-caramelly nose with a touch of toffees; moderate to solid sweet-sourish flavour, medium bodied; very shy hops in the aftertaste, sweet toasty-caramelly finish with alcohol and some fruity-infectous traces. Still O.K., but a bit over the top...... MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2009
(bottle, 33cl, 7.0% abv, with kind permission of Allen) Cloudy, amber colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Sweet and moderately yeasty toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, cacao, marzipan and berry-fruits. Sweet flavour with a faint acidic touch, almost full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toast-malty, slightly yeasty and berry-fruity taste with notes of caramel, cacao and vanilla; moderately sweet and slightly toasty bitter finish with a subtle fruity background. There are harbingers of an early infection, otherwise likeable stuff.19.XII.09 yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2009

Bottle, thanks Allen. Cloudy red, golden cream. Fat berrylike aroma. Solid yeasty fruit base akin to belgian ales, strawberries, some port. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Hit the spot for me. Embrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 25, 2009
Bottled 33cl. My version was at 7 ABV. It pours an amber beer with a nice creamy light beige head. Good head retention. Sulphury nose with hints of lemon, lime and malt. Sweet taste. Good malt presence. Faintly metallic. There is quite a bite to this beer. Nice lacework. Caramel, lime and lemon showing up. Warming alcoholic finish. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2005
hazy amber colour, firm little head, aroma of caramel and butter, also some notes of vegetables, swet with a good malt body, long malty finish with a late touch of alcohol fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2005
Beautiful amber color; the head is quite creamy. The aroma is very simple, with light sweetness and fruitness. As a bock, it’s ok but doesn’t have any interesting characteristic; reasonable structure, some malt, light alcohol, strong caramel. Drinkable but too simple.
