gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2007
From bottle courtesy of Immy. Copper pour with ring of off white foam. Nose is vegetable malts with sweeter malt in the flavor. Not too bad, but the nose really messes this one up.

Got this one from LCBO Spring 2017 collection. Not bad, not as good as the previous one. A good company while watching the Zookeeper’s Wife.

After a few days in Germany I must say this is the best beer I’ve had here until now.

Mahogany colored, clear, with a one finger high, light mocha colored head.

A lot of caramel malt, fudge, raisin, plum, brown sugar, dark rum, bread, a hint of banana and dark syrup.
Smooth carbonation and full body.
Great beer!

En rigtig god bock. Stør sødme og en del maltsmag er der også i den. Lettere karamelsmag fra malten anes.

Straight from bottle. Lots of caramel, brown bread, toffee, light grass. Medium sweet and almost medium bitter. Medium bodied.

4.2
jakeskia (29) - Kanata, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Although a little on the sweet side I really enjoyed this beer mainly for the fact that on the nose those notes of molasses, raisins, dates and loads of spices then turn into a root beer/sasparilla on the palette.

4.5
Subliminal64 (184) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
Poured from bottle into lager type glass. Smells malty and sweet. Pours a dark brown with slight red tint. Head is light and foamy and disappears quickly. Some lacing that slowly disappears. Taste is sweet, malty and complex. Near perfect balance (liitle sweet). Good carbonation. Aftertaste is a little sweet. Overall I loved this beer. You would never know the ABV is 7.2%. Will look for this one again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

phfyysik (1275) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 9, 2017
Pours brown with medium yellow head. Aroma is caramel, some sugar, sweet fruits, sweet cookies, apple pie, some cinnamon. Taste is caramel, toffee, dried fruits, some raisin, malts, some cake notes, light roast, gingerbread, roasted white bread, cookies. Nice beer!

3.3
tandembrauer (1488) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 13, 2017
Shared bottle at Arne and Ulrike’s. Pours clear dark copper with off-white head. Aroma of dark bread, dark dried fruits, vegetables. Tastes pretty sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied, bitter finish.
