PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Half Time Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl - 330 ml bottle. Purs a dark ruby read with a decent mocha colored head - good lacing. Slight chemically aroma with some licorice and coffee notes - not half bad. Flavor has some burnt coffee notes, hints of chocolate and some ripening vegetables. Finishes with a hint of licorice. Mouthfeel is decently thick. Quite surprised - expected a drainpour -a Dunkel from Spain?

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2006
This is the second beer that I have encountered from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a trace of a tan head that fades quickly. The aroma is sour and light roasty on the finish. The flavor is sour, tangy and bitter with a hint of dark malts and a sour and tangy finish. Fairly macroish but tolerable.

Light malty aroma, maybe some hop. Extremely dark brown, almost black, color with a large frothy tannish head. Fading to light lacing. Thinnish mouthfeel, starts with light hop? Goes to chocolate with hints of coffee. Carbonation on the tongue, and some hop at the finish. The malt is so subdued, that this could be (almost) an ale. Maybe more a schwarzbier than a dunkle. Viva Espana!

Bottle. Black with a slim, fast disappearing beige head. Aroma of light roast malt and hops. Taste is malty and quite bitter with some chocolate. Quite spritzy, light-ish mouthfeel. Quite good.

RichardGretton (4240) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2006
Bottle. Black beer with a fizzy head. The aroma is very lightly bitter, and the flavour is malty and quite bitter. Overall an OK dark lager type beer.

Habanero (2567) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle: Deep brown with a very nice off-white head and fine lacing. Weak nose of malt and hops. Light caramel and malt flavour. Light to medium bodied. I like the pleasant and rather strong bitter finish.

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle. Very dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are dry coffee maltrs with chocolate and metal. Fairly hoppy. Flavours are grain with chocolate. Lightly roasted malts. Some sweet mollasses with metal. Pretty mundane.

dwyerpg (4528) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Interesting that my bottle called this a dark lager. Pretty nice, with some wheat hints. Not quite a czech dunkel, but pretty good for my first beer from Spain.

Bitter without much flavor after the first pop. I’ve had better in this category. I would rate this as average.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Pours with a short and quickly disappearing head. Colour ramarkably close to many stouts. Roasted barley aroma, very good one indeed. However the taste is a big disappointment. After lingering on the tongue for only about a second it leaves with a short but very bitter, burnt aftertaste.
