Clear reddish with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, dried fruit and a little alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet finish with warming alcohol. 180112 fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Dark color; thin head. Dry malt, very strong caramel, quite high bitterness; gets easily sweeter when warmer. Not bad. Koelschtrinker (20395) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Brotig-malziger Antrunk, ein süßer Unterton wird zunehmend stumpfer. Auf der Strecke bleibt bei der trockenen Malzigkeit die Würze, zudem wirkt das Bier in Teilen zu süß. DIe Fruchtigkeit gefällt zwar, ist aber meiist zu schwach und im Nachgeschmack ganze verschwunden. Malziger, weiter trockener Abgang. Cremig, trocken.

Bottle in a hotel room in Bruges. Black, thin beige head. Choccy nose, bit of boozyness on aroma. Liquorice, I really don’t like liquorice. Boozy too. Pretty much not in my palate. All wrong for me, but nothing wrong with it. TBone (17528) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2004

Dark red ruby, quickly vanishing expresso head. Crisp - fruits, berries and malts in the nose, not very strong aroma. Plums, raisins and a bit of brown sugar in the sweetish palate. Very thin and watery. Does not show much ABV or anything else.
Bottle. Clear very dark brown with big beige head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, yeast and caramel. Flavour is malt, yeast, chocolate, dried fruits, sweet and caramel. yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. A brown, clear beer topped by a finger-thick, dense, beige head. The aroma has some solvent hints, with crocant, roasted malts and dark dried fruits. Dried fruits, plums and some roasted malts in the flavor, slightly bitter and alcoholic in the finish. Smooth on the palate, full-bodied. A quite nice beer, but far from world class. 110916 jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2010
Decent dark winter ale. Slight licorice notes. Light and airy for the style. A little sweet finish. Rated 4/12/10
