Brown head. Half-sweet. You can taste the yeast. Decent beer. Best "bruin/brown" (brune) bier I’ve had. Can also taste minerals in this one. Meilby (11570) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle 330ml @ My parent’s placeekstedt (6932) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2013
Pours brown with a few floties and a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, toffee, alcohol and dried fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm, toffee and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle (33 cl) from bierzwerg.de. Hazy deep chestnut, some floaters, medium beige head. Sugary and malty with some nutty aromas, dried fruits, and subtle phenols. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Sweet with medium bitterness. SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 Ale scura, schiumosa, profumata e dolciastra; note di caramello, frutta candita, spezie e cioccolato si distinguono nell’aroma e nel gusto. Corposa, liquorosa ma tutto sommato di facile beva. Una strong ale classica ma intensa, da riprovare alla prima occasione. RexTalionis (3775) - FINLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottled. Pours brown in color with a frothy off-white head. Bready, dark bread, malts in aroma, some yeast notes as well. Same bready malty flavor. One dimensional, nothing more nothing less. MoritzF (10018) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, murky brown colour with loads of floaties and a mid-sized tanned foamy head. Nutty toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, leather and a tinge of molasses. Sweet flavour, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Toast-malty base with caramel, chocolate, notes of dried fruits and a mildly vinous Port-like touch; moderately sweet, toasty malty finish with notes of dried fruits and chocolate. 26.II.13 olio (10434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2013

75 cl bottle. 2007 vintage.
Seems to be ok, no contamination detected. Sourish fruits, dark berries, yeast and spices on the nose. Same thing on the flavor with toffee and brown sugar also. Quite nice and nicely aged.
Maybe a 4.0 rating for this vintage bottle.
75 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20090404.
Pours dark copper color with a medium head. Aroma of caramel, dark malts, ripe fruits and spices. Flavor of spices, dark malts, dark ripe fruits and some yeast.
330ml bottle. Pours dark brown with no head and the fizz shook all the bits up. Aroma is caramel, toffee and raisin. Taste is sweet with toffee and caramel. Raisin finish with a toffee aftertaste. Drinks below the strength.
