Bottle. (RBNAG 07) Pours a clear, dark brown with a beige head. Quite sweet and malty aroma with a hint of peat. Caramel, roasted malt and some dried fruits in the aroma, not to forget the peaty notes. Quite sweet and malty finish. Full to medium mouthfeel. A nice and peaty beer I must rerate some day. (071103)

Pours dark brown, almost red in the glass. Nose and taste of alcohol, slight fruits. Decent, but lacked complexity for me. I should re rate this. It’s been awhile. Rated 7/17/2000 brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 24, 2011
A: The pour is dark amber in color with a smallish khaki colored head.
S: A really nice nose on this one. Sweet caramel and toffee all the way through with a hint of vanilla. Toasted bread and molasses give an extra bit of maltiness. A rather simple aroma, but quite good.
T: There is a hint of booze, but otherwise it’s a rather nice combination caramel and toffee. Some more of the bread and toast character, but it is a touch watery at times. Maybe some brown sugar.
M: Medium in body with a low to medium level of carbonation.
O: Overall pretty nice. A bit simple to me, but I liked what it had to offer. Dedollewaitor (16056) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2008

,Odense: Pours dark amber with a little shortly living head. Aroma & taste are caramel, bread, sugar & dark fruits. Quite sweet. Medium bodied. Very quaffable!
Mostly black, but with a strong light you’ll get red glints. Sweet sticky and spicey malty aroma - some fruits - banana maybe? Taste is delightful - a very mellow combination of richly roasted malt, though without the bitterness that roasting can impart, and sweet dark fruits. Sweetness and spicines gave me hints of soemthing like cherry coke or dr pepper! All mellowed with a wonderful oaken woodiness. This is a masterpiece. MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
