(swing top bottle) Clear, chestnut coloured effervescent hue with a big and persistent beige foamy head. Light-sweet toast-malty and nutty aroma with herbal hops, including a tinge of metal that fades quickly. Moderately sweet flavour with a light bitterness in the wings, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Toast-malty, nutty taste with caramel and herbal notes; dryish, sweet-bitter toasty finish with a noticeable hops-character and a lasting aftertaste of caramel/toffee. Pleasant. wastl (130) - GERMANY - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle. Clear darkl colour. Slightly brown head. Roasted malt aroma of coffee. Fine bitterness in the long finish. Enjoyable. Ungstrup (37557) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2007
Draft. A chestnut colored beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet and very malty with quite strong notes of caramel and nuts. The flavor is sweet malty again with quite strong notes of nuts and caramel, leading to a dry and slightly roasted finish. Quite low level of residual sugar - and very fresh for the style.

(On tap) Beautiful, clear mahogany with a warm, reddish hue. Creamy, off-white head leaving some laces. Aroma of roasted malt. Medium body with very roasted malty accents - almost coffeeish. Dry, almost stout-like, with a light bitterness that seems to derive mainly from the dark malts. Nice indeed. 091106 pivnizub (10612) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2006
Tap at the Brewpub, May 2006: Very dark amber coloured, medium-sized off-white lacing head; sweet, toasted malty nose mixed with a herbal hoppiness; sweetish (roast-malty) flavour, light bodied; short, roast-malty, almost smoked finish. Well done.....

Swing top bottle. O yeah, it’s dunkel (dark)! Strong licorice aroma. Sweet and malty with grapes, peach and a licorice bite. Some caramelly bitterness. A bit too sweet maybe, but a very nice beer. rauchbier (3888) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2005
Tap, at the Brewpub. Jan 2005. Deep chestnut, lasting creamy white head and gentle condition. Low fruity malt with some toastiness in the nose, gentle roast malt and spicy raisin notes in the mouth and a gentle fruity finish with traces of wort.
