Dark color, amber-brown, with medium sized compact head. Medium aroma of caramelized malts and hops. Caramel flavor with some roasted malts and a light dusty character; quite strong bitterness, with mild hop resins.
Overall it’s well balanced.

Dark red beer with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is caramel with cookies and a hint of fruits. Flavor is very caramelly but there are no hops to be found in there. Maybe this bottle was too old and the hops faded. Good malt profile, but lacking hops. Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2012
Little head, quickly falling, brown. nose with hops, chockolate milk, cream and caramel, Semifull and fine length. soft. with chockolate, fudge/caramel and a very wellballanced hoppyness. Super ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep hazy brown-ruby body with a huge creamy off-white head. Aroma is smooth caramel malt notes with peachy overtones, hints of grass and honey melon. Taste is caramel, nuts, peaches, grass, hints of resin and honey melon with a touch of burnt sugar and red berries. Bitter finish. Smooth and full body, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice red IPA on the bitter side of things. dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2012
A very fiery berr. The taste was long remembered. The combination red ale and IPQ was indeed impressive ! rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Bouteille de 50 cl. Meilleure avant décembre 2012. Bière cuivrée avec une mousse beige. Le nez est tout en caramel, il n’y a plus de houblon. La bouche est identique, les houblons ont malheureusement disparus et le malt s’est concentré. C’est sucré, visqueux et gras. Cette bière et sur son déclin.
