omhper (24774) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy chestnut brown. Roasty malt aroma. A dryish beer dominated by roasty malt, creates strong coffeelike flavours. A careful hop rate lets the malt flavours dominate and results in low bitterness.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Very dark brown beer with a thick tan head. Sweet malty beer with a bit of spicy hop aroma. Flavour is a bit chewy, but not all that interesting. Slightly spicy, a bit herbaceous and vegetal. A touch of chicory and faint fruit. Doesnt really come together.
