Chocolatey nose with a hint of orange. Color of dietrite cola with a nice off-white head. Tastes sweet and bubbly. There are hops here, but not what I expected from the nose - flavor is more hay-like. ration (2261) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 19, 2013

50cl bottle @ Brisbane German Club. Clear copper-brown appearance with decent creamy-white head and lace. Nose is sweet caramel malt driven with definite smoky notes and perhaps a hint of dark chocolate. Taste is straightforward sweet roasty caramel malts and a light hop bitterness. Medium bodied and quite dry on the palate. Quaffable.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar SF. It pours a reddish amber color with an off white head. The aroma has nice maltiness that comes across as cherry and plum. A bit of cherry syrup. The flavor is very thick on the palate and malty with more cherry and raisin. A little toast. Virtually no hop character. Very rich and malty, but I would have preferred a little more dry toasty character to balance the fruitiness. Well done.
