JanEric (1211) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2009
Ambercoloured, white head, staying for an 0,5 cm. Hints of caramel in the nose, also toffee and especially pepper. Caramel in the taste, some sweets and fruit and hops. Long finish, nice.

edelbrauer (61) - Rgen, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2009
chestnut brown, little, quick disappearing head, fairly inviting, very nice aroma of red fruits, bitter orange, sugar and caramel and cheese. flavor is balanced between sweetness, and dark caramel malts with just a hint of roastiness, that gives a little bitterness. the alcohol is never evident and expertly built in. an inoffensive, balanced and rich brew

SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - JUL 23, 2009
reddish brown, tan head. sweet aromas of malt, phenols, esters and red berries. same flavors but the berry sort of turns into a lingering chemical bittenress.

330ml Bottle at home 22/10/2007 Some carbonation. Beige head. Berry fruit and hop aromas. Amber mid brown coloured fruity and strong in alcohol with some bitterness and dryness in a crisp warming malt finish.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle. A hazy deep red/brown beer witha small and fast disppearing white head. The aroma is malty and lightly hoppy, with notes of dark fruits, caramel and a little bit of alcohol. Decent nose, but not extremely complex nor powerful. The flavour is quite sweet, sugary, with many fruity notes. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, long finish with almost medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Correct, but not exciting.

zakkbironia (112) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 16, 2009
Beautiful red colour that shows this beers quality. Id say amazing colour . Very nice taste with nice foam. perfectly balanced beer. One of the best I think. No more to say, try it out and youll see my point.

GreenWall (54) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
Like a dubbel with a shot of brandy in it. Not bad, at that. (Warming, spicy (cardamom), dried fruit, smooth; brown, garnet highlights, no head)

Beer5000 (6328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 27, 2009
330 ml bottle. Good looking reddish brown body with a big off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, brown sugar and fruit. Flavor is sweet malty, caramel, slightly roasted sugar, spices, fruit, some bitterness and alcohol. Its quite complex but easy to drink. Excellent balance between sweetness, bitterness and alcohol with a pleasant finish.
