TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 9, 2009
Bottle (in NZ). Dark cola-brown in appearance, diasppointingly no head. Nutty roast malt aroma. Develops on the palate from a sweeter syrupy malt to a more bitter hoppy finish. Rich roasted malt dominates the tongue, with just a hint of fruit (raisin) and nut. Done well.

AsaNewt (113) - blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2008
Nice black colour, nose is of maple and toast. Flavour is heavy on the malt and sweet without being cloying. Very nice beer!

Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 21, 2008
Brown colour, small tan head. Aroma has nuts, caramel malts and dark fruits. Flavour has roasted malts and red fruits. Smooth and extremely drinkable. This one stands out!

Ungstrup (37581) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Bottled. A deep red beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and fruit as well as lighter notes of dusty hops. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and dusty hops and lighter notes of fruit, leading to a dry finish.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2008
@ tasting session by Joes. A dark, clear red/brown colored beer with a beige head. The aroma of roasted malts, a little chocolate and cherry fruits. The taste of roasted malts, with fruits like cherry and prune. It has a light bitter aftertaste with notes of chocolate. A good beer.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark copper brown with steady tan head. Good nutty aroma. Sweet flavours initially, hints of raisins and nuts, semi-dry finish. Smooth and appetizing, no sharp edges. Probably more of a brown ale, could even be mistaken for a bock on a dark night. Not bad.

johndoughty (5448) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2008
Bottle. Poured flat and first impression was that sweetness dominates. Quite powerful and left no lacing. Quite malty and more like a brown ale than a bitter. Definitely different.
