Small beige lasting head. Dark reddish brown ale. Very little aroma; faint maltiness. Sweetish-dry peppery roasted malt taste with fantastic clarity. Light mouthfeel. Dry, burnt aftertaste, slightly dusty. Very nice. An excellent lager. (0.25l draft at Akkurat.) SaintMatty (7608) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2009

Bottle, BB 05/07, thanks to lagomswedish! Poured a clear, deep garnet with about an inch of creamy deep beige head. Aroma was of sweeter chocolates and darker fruits with an interesting herbal grainy twist to it. More chocolate than the nose.. lightly-roasted and rather tasty.. back-end had lots of sweet, tacky notes that became a bit cloying.. sticky, super-sweet chocolate finish. Did I mention that this was sweet? OK feel, but came across as powerfully OK. olsvammel (7313) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2014
Sample at SBWF 2014. Malty smell, bready with some toasted dark malts. Similar taste. Malty beer. Full taste.
