Bottle. It pours a small, beige head over an unclear reddish body. Some alcohol in the aroma, along with caramel maltyness, dried fruits and some hoppyness. Citrus hints, pine cone notes and a lightly spiced touch. Itís full-bodied, lightly warming and quite silky on the palate. Nice balance between maltyness and bitterness and hoppy flavors. In comes the alcohol and adds more joy and smoothness. Overall, maybe a bit on the sweet side, but I still think itís a really pleasant and tasteful beer. 120324 Dedollewaitor (16055) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 10, 2011

Bottle from Bottle Barn - hidden in a row of DoppelWeizen in the back cooler. Priced at $3.99 for 22 oz. Canít find a date, but with that price it canít be too young. Dark clear ruby color with a frothy 3-finger tan head. Aromas of dark fruit and caramel. Very smooth aroma. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Rather vinous -suggests dark sherry-, with raisins, dates, caramel and some decent hop. Itís so rich thereís almost a coffee note. The heat is not present until way into the finish, and even then itís not bothersome. Despite the sweetness in the finish it has an astringent effect on the membranes. Like thereís oak. Really good dark ale. Too bad N. CA is having a warm dry January, but Iíll suffer with this winter warmer. Gladly. Gratefully. gunnfryd (14815) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2012

Bomber poured a hazy brown with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of brown sugar, dark fruit and hints of carmel and toffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of maltiness, toffee, light molasses and a hint of dark fruit with a lingering semisweet finish. Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear ruby color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark fruit bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Nice aroma. Alcohol sweet blends nicely with the maltiness. Healthy mix of the two, with decent hops to complement. Goes down tremendously well. Lubiere (13771) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2004
Deep red brown copper ale with an alchohol and fruity aroma, wth strong floral hops notes. Sweet malt and floral hops, with strong notes of plums or prunes. More hops in final. Rich bodied with alcohol warmth coming well.
