wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2010
{thoughts} Roasty, spicy and earthy; pleasantly dry and heavy with lingering flavors.



{elements} Medium brown hue with a red tinge; tall, light tan cream. Aroma is of mild coffee with kaleidoscopic underpinnings of vanilla, clove, old books, figs and caramel. Off-dry, mild and clean acidity, soft and balancing bitterness; broad coffee flavors without overpowering roast, soft caramel and evergreen / juniper; long, lingering smoky and spicy aftertaste. Slick texture, moderate carbonation, medium body. 50 cl bottle, best before 27/10/2011.

Intriguing fruity spicy nose on this chestnut brown ale. Chocolate, cinnamon and a hint of smoke. At first sweet chestnut and a hint of vanilla, with a slight acrid chocolate bitter malt and long fruity finish

RichardGretton (4838) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2007
Bottle. Black beer with a reddish tinge. The aroma is lightly roasted and bitter coffee, and the flavour is smoothly bitter, roasted and mildly sweet at the finish. Overall a nice smooth drink.

yespr (48207) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours deep dark brown almost black with a minor reddish hue and a lacing white head. Roasted aroma that at first doesn’t reveal the smoke notes. Light acidic roasted porterish base with a solid smoke/tar-ish note cutting through. Ends with smoke lingering and nicely bitter finish. Nice.

evilsoc (191) - WALES - FEB 12, 2008
An oily black beer with a lasting beige head. There was a distinct sour apple/cider aroma as it poured which soon disappeared to a coffee cake mixed with a woody/whiskey alcohol aroma.
Flavours of more coffee cake, some spicey bitterness and very faint smoke. a nice porter in my opinion.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2008
Bottled. Dark amber, almost black, this beer has an intense smoky aroma which is matched by the flavour. There is also a lot of caramel with some coffee and chocolate. It was cold last night and this beer did just the trick.

mkel07 (6462) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2009
500ml bottle. Thick black colour with a tan foam head of big bubbles. Medium bodied with an aroma of chocolate and coffee that invites you in . Bitter and tart in a good way. Burnt chocolate taste, light in the mouth and not as thick tasting as it looks.

asheft (3111) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2009
[bottle]
Quite a bit of vanilla in the nose, with roasty malt and a little bubblegum. Nearly opaque orangish dark brown with no top. Quite roasty--even a bit burnt flavour, with vanilla and a little wood smoke. Moderate sweetness in good balance with bitterness. Medium body, slightly bitter finish, moderate carbonation.

3.6

500ml Bottle at Pumphouse, Sydney. Pours a dark brown, with a thick beige head. The aroma is roasted malts with a hint od citrus and caramel/toffee. Fairly thin in the mouth, but not unpleasantly so. Flavours are sweet caramel with chocolate, a light citrus and some berries. light bitterness on the finish.
