madmitch76 (25009) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2011
3rd October 2007
Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark brown beer. Riach and frothy ale. Malty tones, a little worcester sauce. Long very dry malt finish. Just a mild bitterness.

Medium off-white head, redish brown body. Malty nutty aroma, hints of bread and cherry. Warm, full, creamy palate, nice spicy caramel like flavour. Very nice.

Wolfbass (1168) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 6, 2011
Proprio vero il detto che finchè non vedi non giudicare, in effetti ho trovato questa birra alla spina in una pizzeria, e non le avrei dato una lira; invece ha un ottimo aspetto, un buon aroma e anche in bocca non è male.
