Dark brown opaque beer with a small yellowish head, not lasting. Strong roasted and vinous/alcoholic notes with raisins, chocolate and wood. Balsamico, raisins and fortified wine (though I wouldn’t have guessed Porto) in the flavour, coming on very strong. Viscous, rich feel, but not really heavily bodied. Ought to be commercialized. jfb (6830) - GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
(bottle) slightly hazy ruby-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of cherries and heavy pumpernickel, with a hint of balsamic vinegar, some yeast, alcohol and chicken teriyaki. flavour is mostly caramel, fudge and heavy pineapple, with a medium sweetness, some more alcohol, cherries and pumpernickel. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

Un bol de céréales madérisé dans lequel s’agitent des raisins secs et des tanins musclés. L’absence d’effervescence contribue au caractère spiritueux et la 750ml à 6 semblaient insurmontable. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 2, 2014
bottle, thanks to jonas for sharing. dark brown with a reddish tinge; aroma showing port wine, vanilla, prunes, wooden floorboards; plenty of warming alcohol balanced with light vinous acidity; thin texture. unlike any other german beer i’ve tasted

Bottle:Deep chestnut-amber coloured, presumably hazy, small off-white head, solid fruity-caramelly nose with a distinctive background of wood and vanilla and a dash of port, as expected; solid sweet and slightly tart flavour, full bodied, no doubt; tart and a bit sourish finish, but mainly sweet fruity-vinous and caramelly finish. O.K.O.K.… very good! jonas (8157) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2014

Berry (blueberry, blackberry) aroma, wood, vanilla, a hint barn.
Dark brown with a ruby shine.
Feels lighter and fruitier than the base beer, less emphasis on chocolate and roast. Mellow, fullbodied. Well rounded, great example of proper barreling.
Süß säuerlicher Antrunk, malzig, etwas schokoladig. Deutlich hefig, süffig, weicher als das normale Strong Ale. 9/11/11/10//11
