thewolf (12372) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2006
Very dark brown colour with very limited head. Aroma is mostly burnt malts. Flavour continues this trend with a very burnt feeling, some nuttines but sadly its quite poor in body and the taste is a bit too short.

Bottle. Black beer no head. The aroma is rich coffee and the flavour is coffee, lighlty bitter but generally rich. Overall a disappointing beer.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2006
Pours a sump oil brown opaque with a small short lasting medium size sudsy brown head. Aroma has roasted malt friars balsam plum pudding, wood fungus and light alcohol. Very low carb medium body. Flavours a tad disappointing lacking the complexity of the excellent aroma. Medium generic cola sweetness and lighter intensity medium bitter roasted malts and hops. Very pleasant drinking.

KnutAlbert (6750) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2006
Hight marks for this ruby ale, bought at the Jerusalem Tavern to take away. Toasted malt with coffee, perfume and fruitiness from the hops. I love this!

Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
Clear red copper to brown ale with a thin moka head. Sweet caramel with smooth vinous aroma, light vanilla and woody notes. Sweet chocolate in mouth, and vanilla with sour lactic notes, like burned coffee. Smooth old ale.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2006
Hardly any head on this very dark body. Heavy, stout, malty, bitter with hints of chocolate. Good for the winter (it bears its name well), with meat or food that is designed to warm on a winter evening.

Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2005
Very dark, nearly black. No head at all. Low carbonation. A little malt, a little bitterness a lot of chocolate. It works with heavy food or on its own by the fire.
