Dark color tan head. Aroma nuts and wet dog (not joking). Was afraid to taste after smelling, worked up the courage. Not terrible - nuts and cocoa, no hops detectable. A relatively bland beer. I would drink it from the bottle to avoid the bouquet on this one.

Tasted from bottle. Pours very dark almost black with beige head. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Taste is roasted malts, sweet caramel and some raisins. Faint bitter finish. Medium bodied. Has a sticky sweet mouthfeel. Average beer overall.

Dark pour some white head. Aroma of malt raisin leather. Tastes the same. Errs on the side of watery. Like a more palatable weaker Baltic porter. A fine beer for consumption in nonbeery areas.

Bottled, 330ml, a gift from Bill, many thanks. Almost black with brownish head. Quite a sweetish, fruity beer with a smooth caramel note along with blackberry notes. Medium palate, perhaps a little syrupy but really not bad at all. Feeling a little disloyal to Gibraltar by having this at present.

Can. Pours a very dark beer with a small brown head on top. Almost a black beer, some brownish notes. Aroma is very malty, tints of chocolate and slight roast. Flavor is sweetish and malty. Short finish, decent dunkel.

Bottle. Deep dark color with a nice light tan head. Aroma was a slight nutty toast aroma with undertones of chocolate and molasses. Flavor was a toast malt flavor that was sweet but in a pleasant way.

Bottle; poured a dark cola brown with a light brown head. Aroma was sweet and a touch malty, but nothing really going on. Flavor was sweet, watery and fairly bland. Some fruit, caramel and nuts. Forgettable.

Bottle; Poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma: Malt. Flavor: Tastes a bit like what I imagine pool water to taste like, particularly watery. Not too good.

330 ml. bottle. Pours dark black with a medium-thick, mocha foam that dissipates moderately quick. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, and undertones of citrus. Has a tangy bit of acidity when it first hits the tongue. Taste is lightly sweet with a touch of sourness. Flavors of caramel and chocolate. Body and texture are thin, which (to me) is a bit off-putting for a dark beer. Carbonation is fairly lively and the finish is smooth. Overall I like the look and aroma of the beer, but the body and taste don’t quite match up.
