3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark deep brown with an off white head. Aroma is very light, some sweet, some earthy notes. Taste is very sweet and a little acrid. Feels very dry, which is not unpleasant but is different.
Glass, red brown beer, small head. Aroma is malt, caramel, roast. Taste is the same, sweet some bitter, dusty palette, some metal. Meh Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 16, 2018
$2 for the 330 ml bottle, no dating to be found.
Pours a deep brown red, appears to be clear, very small short lasting head of off white foam, some lacing.
Caramel and toasted malt smell, I sense some oxidation.
Taste is of caramel, toasted bread, butterscotch, cardboard, and a cherry like fruitiness.
Pretty big body with very low carbonation.
Past its prime I'm sure but not bad. A nice warming factor going on. BillWyce (1116) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2018
Pours opaque nut brown with a touch of red. Lots of bubbling along the side of the glass. Small, thin bone-colored head. Peat aroma mixed with wood. A touch of wine comes through as well. Body is medium-to-full, and a touch syrupy. Lightly boozy finish. Peaty malt flavor mixed with barrel wood. A bit of tart cherry from the wine follows, with nutty malt at the back.

Nice maltiness, caramel, candy bit raisins, bit nutty, some floral hops. Moderate to intense sweetness with light biterness. Decent ciocanelu (3097) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 25, 2017
Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is mostly malty and sugary with some dark fruits and earthy notes in the background. Taste has a weird sweetness, like unfermented worth mixed with fermented beer. Sugary at first with some earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Really weird, unbalanced beer.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 Più che discreta birra scotch, gusto caramellato e abbastanza dolce ma senza essere troppo invadente. Quick3Beers (1507) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Pours a rich dark brown from a bottle, some lacing. Nice sweet caramel and toffee aroma, light oak. Flavor is big dark candi sugar, some caramel but leaning toward cola, maybe more like a birch beer with some vanilla notes. It's not exactly those things, it's like those things. Pretty good beer. biilz (276) - SPAIN - OCT 27, 2017
Аромат карамели и немного солода. Вкус слишком приторный, очень сладкий с легкой неприятной горечью. Чувствуется карамель в послевкусие. Но в общем пиво меня разочаровало. julesxxl (129) - Cholet, FRANCE - OCT 5, 2017
