alexanderj (3407) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 1, 2013
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.

alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2013
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.

JanEric (1122) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle at a tapas bar in Granada. Dark colour with small head. Almost no aroma. Also the taste is farm away. Nothing special.

Bottle shared at a tasting at the Dancing Camel pub. Black, opaque with tan head. Pickle water, ripe fruit and raisins aroma, sweet, then a little bitter and very delicate fruity taste. Light body, mildly fruity finish. Quite nice, a little metallic finish, Easy to drink.

dexcansino (488) - Andalucía, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2013
Cerveza negra, con espuma similar a la de un expresso. Olor dulce. Sabor suave, a café americano, azucar de cańa. Presencia alcohólica. Muy bien equilibrado el cuerpo con el gas. Es muy refrescante para ser negra.

chinchill (2928) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2013
33 cl bottle, dated "Best By HLH12086"?, served in an American lager glass. Pours a very deep brown color with a nearly opaque body, but when held to a light a faint red hue shows. The tan head is medium size and resembles that of a root beer float. It is moderately durable and leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Purchased today {although best by date may be 8/12}, yet this is a bit skunky; the only skunky black beer I can remember. More of a problem in the aroma than the flavor. There’s a suggestion of hops in the nose with little in the flavor, and only a suggestion of medium malt in the nose with, thankfully, more in the flavor. More sweet than bitter, with some smoke in both the nose and mouth. M: Medium body; medium carbonation. O: needs to be revisited with a sample that is definitively fresh. Reason #1345 for a trip to Spain.
