This was an odd beer for me. It reminds me of one of those nonalcoholic malt drinks. The appearance is nice. Dark brown body with great tan and lace. The smell is overly sweet and only has strong tone of malt. It has chocolate over sweet taste with a very chalky aftertaste. It has a full body.

Bottle at Oud Holland, Amsterdam, Netherlands
A: The beer is clear but very dark reddish brown in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of sweet flat cola are present in the nose along with some hints of caramel.
T: Like the smell, the taste is a little sweet and has light flavors of a defizzed cola.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount if carbonation.
O: This beer isn't too sweet so it is easy to drink but doesn't taste much like a bier.

We pour a brew of the deepest brown, showing maroon flecks when held to light. There is a two finger tall head of medium brown bubbles that shows lower retention. Rings of lacing are left, and a big ghostly aggregate is seen over half the liquid. No haze or sediment is noted, and carbonation appears mild. The aroma is adjuncty, with coiny metallics and light chocolates, like a Tootsie Roll. The nose is creamy and otherwise very mild. Our first impression is expressed as “Holy diabetes!!” The sip opens with synthetic white sugar sweetness which is damn near blinding. Such a shock off that nose. This sweetness really drowns everything but the mildest roasty caramel grain out. The middle peaks with more of those grainy notes drowned in pure sugar. There is a break enough to allow coiny metals and a slight lactic sourness through, but these are quickly swallowed again. The end shows a hint of alcohols, caramel, adjuncts, mild hollow coffee bean, and more of that insane sugariness. The aftertaste is sweet, caramel, chalky, corny, and adjuncty. The body is light to medium, and the carbonation is lighter. The mouth is left with a sticky coating all around, while each sip carries decent slurp and froth, with a final puckering pop. The abv is appropriate, and this beer is hard to drink.
Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the look. The coloring was nice, and the head was clean and inviting. The flavoring, however, proved to be one of the sweetest things we’ve ever had. The sugars were synthetic, like aspartame, which was so overpowering it made this beer quite one dimensional. It was just so overpowering, and the bottle was actually pretty hard to finish.

0.3 cl bottle. Pours a very dark brown, a tone or two before black. Beige head that goes out fast. Sweet, thin taste, very lightly carbonated. Reminds me of a beer an uncle of mine was giving me when I was 5-6 years old, a "kid’s beer". It was that which hooked up on beers I guess, so I really liked this beer, also, nostalgia.
