Poured into a tulip glass with a big foamy head. Dark color but not cloudy.

Smell was caramel and malt with a hint of hops.

A simple taste reflective of the smell, with the malt in the lead and the hops a close second.

Felt good in the mouth, smooth and warming.

All in all a very nice bruin.

330 ml. bottle. Firs of all, I must say it's about a month outdated, so this is not maybe a fair review, though I think it's in good condition yet. . Pours a dark brown colour, with a correct head that fades away soon. Tarty smell of fruits, sugar and alcohol esters. HInts of wood. Too much carbonation and too much sugar. Taste of fruits, caramel, sugar and coke. Why are there that many beers so carbonated and sugary that tastes like coke? To me, this is another one of those.
