330. Pours a murky deep amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of stringy lace. Nice sweet pine and dark caramel nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel and pine mid palate. Starts out pretty flavorful but the aromatics dissipate or something happens as it warms, and it closes out a bit. Nice enough. Davros (3310) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours dark amber with a large head. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Nose shows nutty, toasty and bready malt along with brown sugar and spicy, biscuity rye. Nice stuff.
Toasty flavours with more rye. Almost roasty. Some spicy hops. Not all that interesting.
Way too much carbonation.
Bottle. Brown beer with a huge dark cream head. Grapefruit and light cocoa aroma with malt. Malt and light cocoa flavor with light darker malts and pine. Medium bodied. Darker malts linger with light cocoa, light pine, and light grapefruit. BenH (3434) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2013

330 ml bottle. Rated on 26.2.2013. martinen (1595) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a hazy colour with a small head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel and gooseberry bush. Flavour of sweet caramel, some malts, grassy bitterness, berries and floral notes. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a harsh bitter finish. A rather classic amber ale.
Aromen övertygar mer än smaken. Det kan helt enkelt vara så att jag hade en dålig smakdag, men det här passar mig inte riktigt nu. teddybeer (4176) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2013
Bottled. Cloudy coppery colour with a nice beige head with a very good lastin. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and notes of red fruits. Flavor has a very good bitterness, slightly sweet , red fruits and burnt caramel are present. Bittery final with a long duration. tderoeck (10343) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2013
15/II/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ my birthday tasting - BB: n/a (2013-172) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle! maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Clear red to red brown beer, huge creamy off-white head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: quite some citrus, fruity, bit sweet, berries, jam, sweet malts, some honey. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty hoppy, citrus fruits, grapefruit, other fruits, red berries (wow, fun to read that there’s cranberries in it, while I enter my rating from my notebook). Aftertaste: pretty bitter, almost medicinal, citrus, grassy hops.
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy brown with a pillowy rather thick light tan head. Nose is a little sweet with some caramel and toasting. Taste is a lot more toasty with out being sweet. Interesting.
