Bottled, thanks SaintMatty! Clear nut brown, rich firm head. Sugary nose. Super sweet with spun sugar and sweetened caramel. Light-mediu mbodied with syrupy mouthfeel, no bitterness. A cloying mess. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
Chestnut brown. Has the aroma of bread, lots of sugars. This has a good dark sugary character. A bit like an American Dark with deep Asian sugars. It’s sweet, but the flavours are nice. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2011

5 Incredibly sweet caramel and toffee aroma. It’s just pure sugars all the way.
4 Very deep red. Brief head.
5 Very simple taste, not much character at all, just a dull sweet roast that’s more caramel than malt.
3 Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. More sugar in the finish. Late finish has a slight hint of earthy hops.
10 Well, it’s pretty trashy as a formula, but slips down easily enough. Desperatly short of any character apart from caramel.
Bottle. Dark brown color with a nice big off-white head. Toasty malt aroma with dark bread and some caramel. Sweet flavor, a bit sugary, but not cloying, with malt, kvass-like notes and light toasty hints. Finish is also quite sweet. Light-medium-bodied. Surprisingly quite decent and easy-drinking. kevnic2008 (12000) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2012

Bottle:Deep ruby-amber coloured, stable and lacy off-white head, sweetish toasty-roasty nose, some malty bitterness in the background; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied, but quite soft; sweet toasty-malty finish, ending with a delicate bitterness.
