OLD NOTES OCT 11, 2004 500ml Bottle. Aroma of burnt malt, sweet toffee and a bit of chocolate. Pours clear deep amberish brown body with solid off-white head. Decent flavour of caramel, slight chocolatey malt and with nutty and licorice flavours. The body tends to be a bit of the thin side. Overal it’s not too bad.

Cantabrian (1100) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 15, 2013
Colour of Daffyd Thomas’s "Bacardi & Cola", with a rough off-white head. The flavour is surprisingly bitter, with karamels lurking behind. Not too roasty, not too herbal. Just nice. The finish has an alcoholic touch of an old-timer asthma inhaler.

Mild flavours of caramel, very smooth, not too bad a drop. Could drink a coffee on a hot day.

M_Sack (667) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2013
Deep red/brown, thin cream head. Aromas of roast malt, caramel, brown sugar and a slight whiff of metallic lager yeast. Nice flavours of caramel and roasty malt with a residual sweetness. Hollow mid palate with a touch of bitterness towards the back of the palate. Good with pork knuckle. Perhaps just a touch too sweet by itself.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
50cl bottle from the brewery. Pours a deep brown colored body with a slight reddish hue. inch thick, creamy and frothy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat sweet and bready caramels with a decent roast and some dark fruits. Flavor is similar. Decently roasted and bitter with a bready, somewhat sweet caramel backing. A few dark fruits and a touch of oxidation before this finishes dry and leaves a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a soft, active carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkel. Fairly roasty and bitter, but sweet enough to balance. Not bad.
