(bottle) Almost clear, amber colour with a copper shine and a dense mid-sized and tanned foamy head. Bready and slightly toasted malty aroma with caramel, vinous fruity and alcoholic notes. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toast-malty, slightly bready taste with caramel, subtle fruity notes of raisins; almost dry sweet-bitter malt-accented and slightly fruity finish with a tinge of alcohol. Likeable and warming brew. 19.IX.10 Hermod (8220) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2010

500ml bottle. Pours really dark brown with a small head. Aroma is sweet, sickly malt. Taste is sweet, again, raisins in there somewhere, but the sweetness is overwelming. Medium bitter finish. jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2010

Very sweet taste of malt, chocolate, licorice and a bitter-sweet finish. Almost a little too sweet for me, and I like sweet. madquacker (1165) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2010

Dark reddish brown colour with small off-white head.
Dark fruits and some dark hops in aroma.
Dark roasted malts, dried fruits and some bitter hoppiness.
Dark ale, not my favourite type of ale.
Draught. Bitter & Twisted Beer Festival. Pours a really nice golden brown with a slightly reddish tint. Small tan head that fell away pretty quickly. Really nice caramel and toffee aromas. Some nut and toasted aromas also. Flavours are quite malty with plenty of toffee. Dome bitterness on the finiish but nicely balance. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Nice beer.
