Draft. Copper in the glass with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is somewhat musty yet sweet with a large malt backing. The flavor finds caramel and honey with a hint of roast. Light in body. carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2008

short notes, old reviews
reddish, copper pour, somewhat mineral taste, not so creamy. AvidDirtman (25) - , JAPAN - JUL 9, 2008
This beer seemed desperate to get out of the can and into my glass. Strong smell of moldy beer cellar. A dark mahogany wardrobe-like colour. Pleasant on the palatte, smooth and got a smidgen of cinnamon to boot. A little watery at first but got more creamyness on the middles and after. Coffee and Dry Raosted nuts with a slice of burnt toast thrown in. Not a bad brew, probably couldn’t drink many of them though. DrFunk (80) - Sorumsand, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2008

Deep red and clear with thick white head. This is a great beer when you’re not up for a hop-fest. Very easy drinking and a true classic Kevman (28) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2008
I love a beer that I can sit down to, and not have to worry about a long aftertaste, and a funny smell. This is that beer, great smell, creamy mouth-feel, it’s just.. Good! Nice sweet flavour, and the colour is amazing. A dark brown that brightens into a reddish-gold colour. I will suggest this beer to anyone looking for something different, my only pet peeve is the $10.00 for 4 cans.. Other than that, great!

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 I would say, this is definitely a good weekend treat. It is a tad overpriced in this country, but it definitely goes down smooth and very flavorful. Love the roasted malt flavor and is definitely a great beer from a macro brewery. The only thing I find unpleasant about this brew, is the metallic odor that is noticed prior to tasting, but it thankfully does not translate to the actual flavour itself.

can. faint aroma, looks real great clear, brownish, large thick smooth whipped cream like foam. Taste is vanilla, faint sugar and honey, some hop bitterness in the end. aftertaste is a combination of honey and hops. refreshing session beer. my only complaint is a small hint of a sour taste barely noticeable.

Can with Nitrogen-smoothener. Pours nicely with that special show going as the beer settles. Very creamy and light to medium malty with some degree of sweetness. Hops are totally absent and I think that drinking too many of this particular beer will make you hate it. scanovajr (675) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JUN 14, 2008
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a beige head. Aroma is sweety and malty, some smoked notes. Taste is very malty, notes of caramel and roasted malt. A good surprise for a macro. A imple and good beer. kfl (71) - DENMARK - JUN 11, 2008
Can (with ball) 50cl. Pours a cloudy reddish- brown bottom with a large brown creamy top which changes into full reddish-brown body. Small off-white fully lasting creamy head. Light sweet aroma with hints of caramel. Pleasant, balanced taste which finishes slight dry and bitter. Overall: Looks fantastic when poured into a glass - unfortunately the thin, boring flavor can’t live up to the looks.
