Aroma is malty and traditional but a touch on the mild side. Flavor is more rich with a hint of smoke very nice, Bittersweet with some Carbonic Tang. Body is on the thin side but not too bad nice finish good beer overall.

Zlotta (3505) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2017
0.355 l bottle from 'BierPost.com', bottled in October 2016. Clear, dark reddish brown with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of caramel, toasted nuts and milk chocolate. Rather sweet, malty, slightly roasty taste of caramel, toasted nuts and milk chocolate with hints of dark fruits, followed by a medium long, slightly roasty, quite bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite sweet and not overly sophisticated but easily drinkable and saturating.

Brown and opaque with a thin cream head. Deep malt aroma, caramel, and a touch of shoe leather. Toffee and dark red fruit with a touch of heat.

tricksta_p (4879) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2017
Bottle from Flink Gegist, Delft. Aroma is big caramel malt, toffee, toasted malt, burnt sugar, touch of dried dark fruit with a hint of peat and coffee adding some subtle complexity. Flavour is pretty sweet with a light bitterness in the finish. Body is above medium. Very decent example of the style.

L_Lovecraft (657) - - JUL 9, 2017
Malty and caramel, dark ruby with a thin ocher head, light/medium body, not too carbonated, taste is similar with strong notes of caramel, some fruity notes and a good bitter final...quite balanced but not my favorite wee heavy.
