2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Shared w/ tbone_ & oh6gdx) Dark opaque brown, disappearing beige head. Nose is grainy seeds, some syrupy malts and slight coffee. Flavor has roasted malts, mildly sour, dry and grainy. Not much hops. Medium bodied, coarse carbonation. This one has probably gone bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hand bottled, plastic bottle 1 ltr
Dark hazy nut brown color, small off-white head. Slightly toasted, sourish aroma with underlying diacetyl. Sourish beer with caramellish notes, light toasted notes in the finish. Not really feel infected, but certainly not a beer to have 4.0 average (as it was here).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (from draught?) (Thanks Bov). Deep murky rubyish colour. Aroma is mild roasted and acidic coffee along with some sour wooden notes. Flavour is quite sour and acidic fruits and coffee along with some strange sweetness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[2002-09-15, 8-5-8-4-15] Dark amber colour. Pleasant aroma of malt and roasted malt, very light aroma of coffee. Mostly characterized by the roasted malt, some more burnt malt and the related bitterness. Good final, as usual.
Very interesting and quite original, I would call it 'Cappuccino lager'.
[2002-01-16, 7-5-7-4-14] Dark amber lager. Malt aroma, light but nice. Delicate texture, malt taste, rather sweet for a lager. Good final, stronger than the usual dunkels.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful dark brown and bright colour, few foam. Complex and dense aroma of malt, yeast, chocolate and hazelnut. The flavour does not quite live up to its aroma and is quite sweet and light. The finish is very long and sweety. An original and very pleasant beer.

Dark brown colour with few foam. Subtle and great aroma of herbs, cream and caramel. Deeply balanced with a long buttery finish. Excellent !
