Sampled from bottle @ The Hague tasting. Hazy opaque brownish color, small off - white head. Smell and taste malts, slightly roasty, dusty, earth, leaves. Hmm not really bad, but not really good either. worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Brown with a red tint and a thin, white, lacy, lasting sticky head. Smells of malt, cherry, and caramel. Medium oily body. Tastes of medium dark malt, caramel, and a berry finish. Soft of like a Schwartzbier but note nought roast or chocolate. Zer0 (1226) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
