50 cl, bottled. Pours clear red with a beautiful creamy (love the colour) head. Aroma: Toasted malt, coffee most certainly. Taste: Medium sweet, lacks bitterness. Coffee continues in flavour. Toffee. Palate: Light-medium body, quite slippery. Low carbonation. Mild acidic tone in the end. Pretty decent. Metalchopz (3536) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
4.7% ABV version from the SAQ, in a green bottle. Wow... beautiful roasted malt nose with some light smoke and nuts. Colour is a clear copper with a creamy off-white cap, decent lasting with some good thick lacing. The taste is on the sweet side though, not showing much of the roasted malt. Second sip seems less sweet, almost watery. The smell disappears as well, but when you swirl your glass, some nice aromas come back, even a bit of coffee. Too bad the flavours are not present. Just some dull malt and this sweetness that comes and goes. kingstoni (2149) - FINLAND - JAN 30, 2012

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 Flaske 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. 3,8%. Drukket i heimen som trøst under innlegging av backlog 1 Des 11. Dyp gyldenbrun. OK høyt litt farget skum som daler sakte men varer lenge. Markert aroma av karamell. Smaken det samme men med innslag noe ubestemmelig. Ikke helt god. Blir veldig søt og lett. Hverken koseøl eller tørsteslukker.

500ml bottle, 3.8% abv., thanks to Finn. Dark green bottle with a golden foil to its neck. Beige head, Deep, dark brown body, ruby glint. Grain-malty nose. Brown sugar and bready, dark malts in flavour. Modest bittersweet end. Dusty dry. Smooth. Nice, a tad too sweet, though (Tromsø, 13.01.2012). VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
From a bottle. Pours a dark, ruby red with a nice white head. Tastes incredibly sweet, nice fruits, goes down very easily. Just about no bitterness, making it extremely accessible. Very adequate level of carbonation. This is probably one of the most underrated beers here, as I know I could initiate just about anybody to beer tasting with this one. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle @ home. Aroma is nearly non excistent, maybe some roasted malt.
flavour is light malty sweetness with a touch of roast. Meh. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear dark red pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is mostly absent, some sugary malts. Flavor is sweet sugar and a bit creamy. Boring brew.
