Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Probably my favorite beer of the event. Hazelnut color with a loose white head. A little bready and lightly sweet. Clean and easy drinking (like all the beers that day). yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a lacing white head. Breadish and caramel malty aroma. Flavour is mild roasted and breadish base flavour. Dry. Nice one. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Deep amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly malty and toasty wit a light caramelly sweetness. Chewy and sweet with evidence of decoction mashing. Fairly complex maltiness with lots of toasted nuts, soft light malty sweetness. Great balance of soft toasty sweetness and light herbal bitterness. There is even a bit of cocoa and herbs as you get through this. pivnizub (10612) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 20, 2007

Bottle. Malty aroma with a hint of milk chocolate. Soft roastbitter flavor. Malty with hints of lciorice and butter. Medium bodied, but this beer was dryer than expected. Malty roastbitter aftertaste. MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2008
(bottle) Clear, chestnut colour with a beautiful and stable, slowly lacing off-white foamy head. Aromatic, caramel-malty and roasty aroma with a touch of cacao and light notes of herbal hops in the background. Light-sweet flavour with a burnt bitterness, light to medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Roast-malty taste with caramel and cacao/chocolate; quite dry, roast-malty and slightly burnt bitter finish. Lacks a bit body but is anyway a likeable dry Franconian Dunkel with noble bitterness (18.04.07). Grovlam (4244) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
