Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Pours a clear ruby colour with a small size head and good carbonation. Smell is very fruity, sweet fruits like cherries and raspberrys there, like a mix of kriek and framboise. Taste is very fresh and clear, has the raspberrys there too, but no cherries. Goes down with a nice bit of warmth.

Bottled. Nice red dark color with a persistent beige head. Aroma is fruity with notes of malt, flavor is spicy notes of red fruits. Mouthfeel is long and amazing, some spice and bitterness.

joe19612 (2756) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2008
Sweet and sour taste, with a note of tropical fruits and spices, especially banana. Finishes off rather flat. Pretty well balanced, with no strong alcohol tang, though this is a fairly strong ale. A pleasant beer.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2008
Dark red beer with a thick rocky off-white head. Aroma of nice malts, spices and dried fruit and alcohol. Flavour is caramel, citrusy and some spiciness. The alcohol is hidden well. Nice finish with a bitterness that lingers.

floydian1 (1414) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 8, 2008
Hazy dark red-brown ale with 2 fingers of off white head. Yeasty nose of roasted malts and chocolate. Sweet fruity palate with a warming mocha-like finish. Smooth and full bodied. Hides its alcoholic strength well. Unusual but I like it.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 18, 2008
Bottle, 33cl. Pours translucent dark mahogany, with short-lived off-white head, some lacing. Cherry, malt and yeast on the nose, and very sweet on the palate, too sweet in fact. A shadow of a beer in comparison to a genuine secondarily fermented beer, and added sugar is no substitute.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getrnke in Darmstadt. Pours a darkish red/brown. Aromas of spice, coriander, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor has an alcohol taste to it, mixed with a nice smokey dark fruit. Also has strong hints of spice and orange.
