Red,brown, with a tan foam. Aroma of sweet maltyness and coffee. Nice full body, and nice long bitter finish. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
0.33l bottle. This one pours a deep deep ruby-brown body with a quickly fading and heavy sidesticking beige head. The aroma is not to bad, it has some light burned caramel notes, banana both sweetness and fruitiness, thin chocolate paper, cardboard hints and it also has a flower-water touch over it. Not horrible at all. Average to lively carbonation level and it has quite a nice oily to light sticky mouthfeel. Flavors even better than the aroma with lots of sweet caramel, tones of dates and raisins also and it’s quite malty but still well balanced with bitterhops before it ends quite mouthdrying. I’m sold on this one. Did not expect it to taste this good. Oysteib (112) - NORWAY - NOV 24, 2014
From bottle. Dark redbrown colour. Dark aromas. Quite sweet, will well rounded bitterness at the end. Maybe too sweet for some, but suits my taste. A bit thin, though. CH-303 (2252) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUN 30, 2008
