bottle - Pours clear dark brown with a malty aroma and some nice lacing. The flavor is sweet caramel malt and a touch of dark fruit. I know, this style isn’t supposed to have any fruitiness, but that’s what I thought I tasted. It’s medium bodied and easy drinking, pretty good overall. tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2007

Lousy, but in a standard way. General grain/vegetal flavors. Meh. Good looking beer, though. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2007
A firm, foamy, light tan head quickly disappears above a dark red-brown body. A quick light test proves the body to be extraordinarily clear. The aroma begins with some dark cherries, followed by a bit of milk chocolate and lightly roasted coffee. Actually, make that more like instant coffee. There’s a bit of breadiness to the affair as well. Sometimes the cherries tend towards a cough syrup aroma, and some part of the aroma strikes me as being too bright. But there aren’t any horrendous brewing artifacts here, no. Flavour is sweet with cherries and toast, and a little too acidic for my liking. Hm, kind of reminds me of cherry pop-tarts with icing. The finish is short and sharp with a little bit of pepper. Medium bodied, with a creamy texture and fizzy carbonation. Less acidity, less bright, less artificial and less carbonation would be a good start for improvement. Still, it’s not foul and drinkable enough. 50cl can, Leffe goblet, bbe 24/08/08.

Bottle. Very sickly sweet. Sweet and syruppy. Unbelievably undrinkable.. Disgusting mollasses. Yikes. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Reddish brown color with creamy head. Sweetish, malty, toasty and toffeish aroma. The taste is equally malty and toasty along with caramel. Tasty and malty bock. Quack-Duck (9485) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2007

Canned. Dark clear copper, small creamy beige head. Fruity and caramelly malt aroma, some earthy and yeasty notes. Medium bodied, a bit spritzy. Dry and bitter finish, slightly metallic. Dunkel?????? thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2007
From bottle. Dark brown with a medium creamy head. Yeasty caramel aroma. Well-balanced caramel flavours. Good carbonation. Well-made, but a bit dreary.
