Bottle (#079237) shared by Cuso, thank you! Hazy deep amber colour. Aroma plum, caramel, light alcohols, diacetyl. Taste is soft chocolate, toffee, lightly fruity. Light background bitterness. Finish is long, sweet, balanced with some bitterness. Late roasted character. pivnizub (10615) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle(#017208):Amber coloured, stable and lacy and creamy off-white foam, nuts or almonds, dried fruits and/or raisins and a touch of port-wine in the complex nose; moderate to solid sweet flavour with a slight bitterness, full bodied; more bitterness in the still sweet fruity-vinous-caramally finish. Heavy and nice… Lagerboy (2206) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
500 ml bottle # 016783 Clear medium copper, smaller creamy tan head settles and mostly fades. Musty aroma of strong sweet malt. Sweet malty taste, caramel, toffee, some fruitiness, backseat earthy floral herbal hops, a lil’ boozy and slightly oily. Soft carbonation, medium-full bodied, lightly hopped. A little disappointing.

500ml bottle from the brewery. Pours copper with a thin white head. Aromas of apple pie, poached pears, dark sugar. Taste has a touch of booziness, and a very faint bitterness, mostly just sweet and sugary though. Nice, got a few to age so will be interesting to try again in a couple of years.

Bottle, kindly donated by Scopey, many thanks. Dark amber colored beer with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, herbal notes, piney hops. Taste, toasted malt, caramel, biscuits, ripe oranges, tangerines, aromatic hops. Long hoppy bitter finish. Tasty. Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Copper-brown pour. Thin off white head. Aroma is sweet with some malty fruit. Flavor is really nice and the mouth feel is perfect. An overall sweet beer with caramel, alcohol, and spice. It’s hard for me to describe. Really nice all around. Erzengel (8725) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
Rating from 2011: Rot-Braun ergießt sich das Bier ins Glas, beige-brauner Schaum.
Der Antrunk ist vollaromatisch, Strongaletypisch, leicht holzig. Aromenreichtum, der sich im Hauptteil noch weiter entfaltet.
Hinzu kommt eine toll herbe Note, die zu dem holzig-weinartigen Ton des Bieres passt!
Reife rote Kirschen, Pflaumen,
Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, intensiv, vollmundig. Den Alkoholgeschmack ist nicht zu merken!
--> Sehr leckeres Ale!!
Toll, aromenreich, schwer!

Reddish brown in color... Aroma of caramel, fruity esters.... Flavor of caramel malts, pretty bland, with minimal bitterness on palate... Slightly boozy... Subpar

50 cl bottle @ home. Bottle #020914, BBE 12/2012
Aroma is slightly sweet with strong grainy notes, toffee and some moldy notes. Flavour has toffee, woody notes and English hops. Finishes with unpleasant alcohol tones. Definitely a disappointment, 2008 was a lot better at this age.
