bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2009
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.

Dark with not much head. Sweet malts with forest fruit flavours. Smooth mouth feel, remarkably drinkable for its strength.

MPA (979) - Amager (form. NÝrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 29, 2005
Maybe the taste of plums, raisins, prunes and other dark fruits is just meant to become more pleasant as one grows older. I certainly like it in beer, which makes me quite positive about this beer. Although it is on the light side in the dark fruit department, it still makes up for a good beer Itís supplement of nice malty tones combined with itís taste of Grandma, makes me consider buying a vintage Ford A and go off on a voyage to the "old" days (and Iím only 30?!)

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Very subtle aroma. Dark brush and mildly fizzy. Thick caramel saying with a sticky throaty experience. Quite gorgeous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RobBestwick (871) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2003
Bottled: pours with a dark brown hue and a nice thick and frothy head, malts are dominant but there are some interesting fruit notes together with smoked and woody tones, full bodied, very enjoyable.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2002
Sweet caramel aroma. Ruby coloured with short lived tan head and a bit too much carbonation. Very thick. Sweetish malt & yeast flavour. Minor roasted bitterness. Slightly more flavour than Moretti La Rossa but twice as expensive.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2005
Tasted 09/11/2005. 500ml bottle from Liquorland, Miramar. Deep ruby with an oily, light tan, head that slowly vanishes. Big caramel nose that also comes through in the flavour, with dried fruits (both prunes and raisins) and a subtle woodiness. This beer hintís of a good quality rum, with coke - in a good way. Very seet in the middle. Softly carbonated and medium bodied. Slightly oily mouthfeel and dry finish suggest that there are more hops and roast malt than the nose or flavour suggest. Not everday drinking but not bad.
