Hazy brown. Slight muscovado note and hints of brown sugar, but otherwise thin. Perhaps somewhat oxidized, at least that’s the impression I get but still nice brown sugar notes. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle thanks to Joss who schlepped it himself across the pond. Simple dark malt aromas and flavors. JorisPPattyn (10113) - BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2007
Very dark foxy-amber beer with an even, dense, creamy-yellow head. Short sharp greenery smell, followed by sweet, thick cake nose with molasses or treacle and chocolate. Bready, sweet, cake & short sourish (lactic) whiff in each sip. Quite rich, velvety MF as for a rich egg- and chocolate filled cake dough. Bit of rum & raisins too, or it is as if they would fit in naturally. Little near-bitterish finish, earthy. Alcohol remains mainly hidden, but there’s some telltale warming. Ah - sweet one, but nice one. Dessert Bock, if any. jonas (8278) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2007
Bottle. Chocolate cookie malt aroma, minerallic hop notes. Ruby red, creamy low brown head. Sweet somewhat sirupy base, a hint booze, light herbal counter. Medium, slightly sticky body. Molassis aftertaste.
