Medium light brown head. Hazy dark red body. Fruity spicy roasty wooden aroma with toffee and chocolate notes. Dry-sweet chocolatey spicy wooden taste with roasty alcohol notes. Mid-bodied. Dry, faintly astringent, earthy wooden chocolate aftertaste with spicy oranges notes. Nice, but maybe a bit cloying. (0.75l bottle, gift.) FatPhil (16401) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 10, 2010

Deep red, smalll keggy head. Caramelly aroma, some roastiness too. Fairly slidgy palate. Pleasant carbonation, but a bit sharp on the tongue when combined with the biting taste. Over-spiced and just too sludgy.
Brown color with a medium off white head. Sweet malty and caramel notes in the aroma. Flavour with roasted malt, caramel and fruits and and caramel. Slightly hoppy finish. MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2009 Bottle, 7.3%. Rough fruity aroma. Hazy dark brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is mildly caramelly, a bit rough. A bit of grassy hoppiness, but overpowered by the rough caramel.

Deep ruby color, good creamy beige head. Slightly chocolaty, roasted, barnyardish and caramelly nose. Caramelly, slightly dark chocolaty flavor, light hops in the finish and some dusty roastyness. Sweetish, quite uninteresting.
(Draught at Pikkulintu) Poured red and cloudy with small white head. Aroma was malty and bit yeasty. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Tasted of malts, sweetness, lightly chcolate, saltiness and bitterness. Malty aftertaste. charlotte (5394) - rødovre, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2009
