Lovely mild banana aroma, with a very long lasting head. There is a biscuity maltiness and its very smooth on your tongue.

Botella en Doemens. Vierte en color castao con un toque rojizo, brillante y transparente. Espuma media, cremosa, que baja rpido pero luego permanece. Franca y directa en nariz, de intensidad media. Predominan las notas afrutadas con pasas, castaas y manzana roja. Entre los tostados encontramos cacao y melaza. Algo licorosa. De entre los gustos bsicos muestra un dulzor claro, aunque compensado por la marcada acidez. Tambin un punto salado claro y un amargor tenue. De cuerpo medio-alto en boca y textura acaramelada, chispeante y aterciopelada. Clara sensacin de calidez, algo astringente. Con la evolucin en boca, los torrefactos salen claros con el dulzor del caramelo y la acidez que lo equilibra. El amargor de regaliz est siempre de fondo. Permanencia media en boca. Una cerveza para pensar, para tomar como copa al llegar a casa o en una sobremesa de conversacin tranquila. Marida con carnes estofadas como un codillo, un ragout, un rabo de toro o un ossobuco.

Lively dark brown pour, soda head that dissipates but leaves a persistent trace. Aroma is malty and rich with dark fruit - raisin, fig, cherry, rum, booze. Taste is astringent to start and gets progressively ripe - starts grapey and tart, then cherry, rum, booze, banana, nutmeg to finish. Bubbly palate suits the beer. "Love" would be too strong a term, but its very good.

Onesimus (53) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2017
The stage lights go up the curtain is drawn and centre stage is a glass of Ruby brown Ale with a one finger, off white foamy head that melted slowly to a thin layer. As she spins in the glass her aromas emanate filling airwaves with malty dark fruits, a note sweet caramel and a hint of herbs. Enticed by this you notice her rounded and smooth body, with a good carbonation giving a swanky mouthfeel. She continues her performance with gathering intensity but as you taste her delights she is dryer than expected. A bitter twist to her performance given by hard hitting herbs that challenges, her promise of malty fruits make little appearance, there is no reprise of the sweet fruity promise just unrelenting dryness. Like the dark talented artiste she is you were duped and drawn into her deception and yet you still just want to drink deeper of this mordant biting babe. FB group "The Beer Journal"
