UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 Thanks to BelgBeerGeek for the trade. Pours out dark brown, likt pitch black. Very small lightly brown head that holds. Burned, some sour/liquor fruity smell. More sourness then expected, hope the bottle was ok... Bitter-roasted some kind of sour taste. Cherish-prunes, coffee. Have to re-taste this one if I can, cause I’m wondering if this was how it was ment to be... Date at bottle was ok, so that was not it.. Some kinf of weird brew of this is how it haves to be.

750ml bottle acquired in trade. BB Aug 2013. Poured a dark brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of wood, chocolate, earthy, and some dark fruits. Tastes of woodiness, oaky, lighter chocolate, and dark fruits. Had a lighter tart finish. kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - MAY 14, 2010
The bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass not very zippy, almost black, small head. Strong-malty aroma with coffee notes and notes of liquorice. Starts malty, deep, heavy, not very dry, very fruity like plum. Finish sticky-sweet, modest dry in the background. Moldy-malty aftertaste. Okay!
