Ruby close to dark black. visible carbonation. White foam that quickly is reduced to a thin layer which lasts until practically drink the cup leaving some lace. Aromatic and complex. On the nose aromas of malt, candy, bread and some alcohol, with fruity notes of dark fruits like plums, figs, raisins and berries such as blackberries and raspberries. certain nuances are also appreciated wood, even very subtly smoked a trace. Just hop intuits. malty character on the palate, dominated by toasted, caramel and fruit, mainly dark fruits with vanilla nuances. The flavors are well blended, not resulting in water or excess alcohol, although alcohol appears suddenly and is present but without bothering with a moderate burning at the end Swallow, helping to provide a dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable despite its intense flavor, alcoholic volume and body. kustie (1214) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2016

Dark red-brown, small tan head. Brown sugary malty aroma. Medium full body, a little alcohol. oily texture. Rich sweet malty flavor with caramel, toffee, a little red fruit. Excellent. chinchill (5067) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2016
345 ml bottle served in a lager glass.
This is a good looking beer with a deep, dark, reddish brown body topped by a tan head than quickly reduces to a thin top coat and ring. Spotty lacing.
Sweet malts dominate the aroma. The flavor brings in some boozy elements, as expected, but no higher than usual for style or 9.2% ABV. Lots of toffee and some dark dried fruit notes. Light-moderate sweetness seems just right for style.
