Ultra dark pour from bottle. Npt much head. Serious malts and booze Deep burn. Good but thick as all hell Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2014
Odense catch-up from the cellar. 2011. Dark red chestnut colour with a tiny off-white head. Fabulous rich malt aroma with dark bread, biscuit, dried fruit and vineous alcohol. Disappointlingly thin and watery fruity and malty flavour, with plenty of alcohol gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2014

12oz 2011 extra received from Lymph a while back in a pretty awesome trade!! Big props to Robert... Very generous guy. Pours a hazy mahogany... very little head and no real cap or lacing... Pours thick like a watered down Aunt Jemima... Should be much clearer and have some sort of head on it.
Wow... This smells like a doppelbock on steroids. Boozy dark malt with rum soaked fruit.. plum and raisin... Incredibly rich.
Flavor is very rich, but not on the same playing field as the nose.. a bit fruity like an English Old Ale.. dark sorta cherry/orange essence (odd, I know) along with a slight chocolate element not present in the aroma... EtOH and brown sugar on the finish... a little oxidation reminds me of tawny port.
Flavor is thick and mildly syrupy... actually close to tawny port :-) but with some very minor carbonation.
Pretty proper... HUGE, but proper. I truly appreciate it Robert... Thanks buddy. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - DEC 26, 2013
A ruby body with a minimal tan head. Seemed watery and lacked carbonation. Aroma was a mix of fruity esters, some alcohol and mild caramel malts. Flavor seemed to be very tart and the alcohol was almost booze like. Not a good balance of flavors. A thin mouth feel and a boozy finish. charule (2257) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from Kuhnhenn. Poured hazy red brown with min creamy head. Light boozy caramel aroma. Med carb and bod. Super sweet taste. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to FlandersNed. Last bottle of a long bottle share at my house... Dark brown, red color. Mostly hazy. Thin, minimal off-white head. Minimal dots of lace. Lots of caramel malt in the nose, dark fruit. Bigger body. Smooth, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, especially for the ABV, a bit of a bite, some moderate to bigger sweetness, not very pleasant. Not very pleasant at all right now. Caramel malt and chocolate is a bit prominent right now, not very pleasant. Overall, just OK, and a bit tart. WTF? Not good. More I try, the more repulsive it gets. Lightly tart also. Not pleasant.

A reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with treacle, plums, interesting. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with dark fruits, molasses, alcohol warmth, very very smooth. On tap at Beer Authority.
