Clear, dark red beer with a filmy head. Smell s of earthy malt but not much else. Taste is malty too but with rich fruit and some caramel there too. Really nice and hearty.

prawlie (1572) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Londis. Sort of an English bock. Quite nice but it lacks the complexity of something like Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock.

At first I was not a fan however with in 2 or 3 mouthfuls the true taste come for a 7% beer very mild fruit and hops

allmyvinyl (10295) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
500ml bottle from B&M home store. Pours clear dark mahogany brown, some red chinks shining through, thin, short-lived off-white head. Aromas of treacle, raisins, light metallic note. Some prunes too. Taste is liquorice, molasses, treacle. Faint herbal hops, that donít quite clean up the sticky finish, but they make an effort.

Trappis**d (34) - Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Dark ruby red ,wonderful colour, it has relatively high fizz for its strength, but quickly gives way to a warming deep steeped fruitiness with a slight bitterness to finish. Nice ale

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
500ml bottle at home, a month past its BB date, 7.4%. Very dark reddy brown, sparkling, small tan head. Aroma is yeast, some apple and coins, wet paper. Body is rounded, soft carbonation, touch foamy. Taste is breathy dark malts, dates, treacle, tangy booze. Something quite íBelgianí about it - not sure if itís the yeast used... Decent, interesting to try, but probably not one Iíd reach for again.
