Love the graphics too! DutchDrebus (5956) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2011
Amber to brownish colour. Smells a bit like a stout: roasty and coffee. Also some wort smell. Tastes sweet and malty. Active carbo, nice full body. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Cloudy dark amber with medium head and full lacing. Taste is a nice balance between caramel malt and light hop bittering. A good session beer. Gerbeer (3698) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with medium head. Aromas of molasses and toasted malts. Light flavors of malts, brown sugar, and a bit of biscuit. Bitter finish but overall nice balance. Quite session-able. ansjelaah (1748) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2013
2011, bruine kleur, helder, ruikt en smaakt een beetje als een stout, rook en koffie, bitter, zoet, beetje mout.

500 ml bottle at home. Stood for two days and poured carefully into a pint shaker, but still more cloudy than expected. Hazy brown, with minimal head. Caramel malt aroma with a splash of Cointreau. This is repeated in the flavour, along with dried fruit and nuts. Deceptively thin mouthfeel for the ABV, but as a number of raters point out, this hides its alcohol well, and drinks more like a premium bitter, particularly as there is a hop astringency to the finish. leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Barely any aroma. If anything, a slightly TCP tinged malty character. Looks good though, dark brown / reddish with a good amount of bubbles rising for the style. Thick, sweet, caramel deep malt flavour balances well with the bitterness from the hops. Can taste the alcohol, good full body, almost oily. A great standard beer. redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Medium /dark ruby color with a thin head. Malt aroma with musty hop aroma. Slight hop taste, malts, slight toffee. Very slight port like quality. johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2003
Ruby coloured with a slight head and smooth finish. Well balanced and delightfully drinkable.A bit like drinking a weak port but nevertheless a very drinkable beer. Aftertaste is pleasant and rather gentle considering the 6 per cent strength. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2003
