Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at the Ramstein AB shopette. Pours a nice cola colored brown. Aromas of malts, fruit, and a touch of spice. Has flavors of chocolate, caramel, and a touch of wood. Kinda thin in the finish. SkyCop32 (287) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2008
I was disappointed and expected more as this was a dark color and good smell. The initial taste was malty with a hint of sweetness but lacked body and taste. Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2008
Aroma of malt. Coffee colour with a large off white head. Tastes of malt its an ok beer but not much to it. janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2008
Color is deep ruby brown. Pours with lacy, foamy but vanishing head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, fruity. Mild, sweet malty flavor is syrupy and metallic with sweet yeasty finishing. Palate is medium-bodied and quite much, foamy carbonated. 196osh (2) - Kilmarnock, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2008 does not count
A bottle. Dark attractive looking beer. Nice chocolate like flavours, not overpowering or very complex, Very drinkable.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Draft at the Brickskeller, D.C. Very cloudy pour, with a surprising degree of carbonation. Nothing oily about the mouthfeel, but rather a crisp and effervescent body. Very drinkable, modestly fruity, but not terrifically distinctive. EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle. Deep ruby/brown in colour with lively tan head. Rich, fruity, chocolate malt aroma with orange in the background. Flavour is more chocolate leading to a nice, surprising dry finish. Rich body. Wonderfully balanced beer. Flamojune (113) - Ville de Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2008
Peut etre meilleur que la blonde. Belle couleur brune, belle mousse. Un peu plus sucré que la blonde, tres fort... JonnyDr (132) - , Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2008
Deep brown beer with light head. Malty start leads to caramel/raisins and leathery finish. A decent dark abbey. Borgen (28) - DENMARK - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle. Dark beer with a frothy head. Fresh and taste a bit fruity, but it doesn’t last long .
