50cl bottle from bier and zo
Thick white head. Clear amber pour. Lots of caramel. Very nice MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2009
(bottle) Hazy, copper-ish amber colour with a beige and dense foamy head. Sweet and strong Bock-like cara-malty aroma with notes of caramel, subtle fruity notes and almost ethereally spices. Sweet flavour with a balancing bitterness, full bodied with a calm carbonation. Robust (cara-)malty, slightly toasted base with caramel/toffee, liquorice, subtle fruity elements and again almost ethereally spicy notes; sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented, delicately toasted finish with an inoffensive, but very present alcoholic burn in the warming sense. A hearty, very flavourful brew. 28.IX.09 tderoeck (9724) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2013

Clear deep orange to amber beer, big fizzy light beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, malty, sugar, red fruits syrup, bubble gum, honey. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malty start, red fruit jam, sugary, some citrus, bitter hops, strawberry jam. Aftertaste: caramel, sweet malts, honey, red fruit jam, little bitter, some toast. I liked this beer a lot, my fellow tasting buddies did not.
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Clear dark brown body. Dry and burned barley malt aroma. Pleasant smooth barley malt flavor with a suitable amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2009
bottle, Waitrose Sidmouth 2008. Dark brown colour with a small head. Fruity nose. Very smooth, deeply malty with raisins, plums and shy hints of citrus fruit. Very malty indeed with a well-rounded malty finish. Delicious.

Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a clear dark amber colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is rich caramel and roasted malt. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a super liqourice nutty caramel palate. Super smooth and very tasty. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Deep golden-amber pour with a thin head. The aroma is great. Lots of stewed fruit, apple and some pale malt as well. Strong and bracing with a nice warming peppery character. A little bit of orange and a lot of bready character. Slightly sticky mouthfeel and a great balance of malt and hops. Slightly minty with a nice chewy palate. I was in the perfect mood for a beer like this one. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2010
[2652-20091211] Cask. Sweet heavy grainy malt aroma. Clear, dark amber red body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sweet thick syrupy grainy malt flavour. Medium body is bitter and thick. Not bad, fairly golden and pridey.

Copper-colored, the foam is a bit dirty white. Aroma was rather inviting, malt toffee, apricot, nuts.
The relatively high alcohol content of 8.5%, passed through a bit in the flavor. The beer is sweet, body was quite full. Bitterness is pretty high on the beer. gunnar (9094) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear copper with a small frothy, fast diminishing off-white head. Aroma of caramel, deep red fruits and apricot marmelade. Taste is moderate sweet, sugars and marmelade, with some wood and weak alcohol burn at the finish. Sticky mouthfeel.
