Black with a redish tint. Light brown head. Sweet aroma full of brown sugar. Is somewhat artificial and has a buttery edge. Sweet and sugary taste is there but faint. Has a light flowery edge and light cocoa is notable. Medium bodied. Ends on a sweet matallic note.

Lowenbrau (1729) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 5, 2014
330ml can. @home 05-03-2014.
In short: a watery sweet dark lager.
Pours quite dark with frothy tan head. Short head retention, some lacing. Caramle, roasty, metalic aromas. Light body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is roasty, caramel, two seet, some liquorice. Watered down.

allmyvinyl (2173) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours near-black with a big tan head. Aromas of dark sugar and cereal. Taste is more of the same. Not sure what I was expecting really, but underwhelming.

radagast83 (4126) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2014
At Jaleo in Washington DC. Bottle. Poured a dark ruby, cola color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light roasted caramels, sweet malts. Caramel, light nutty chocolate, but mostly very plain and inoffensive. Clean enough to not overpower the meal, but that’s about that. Would probably take this over the other offerings there again.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of BoostIPA. Thanks Shawn! Pours a clear deep brown / black appearance with a brown head. Olive / veggie, roasty malty, burnt sugar aroma. Twangy, sweet brown sugar, caramel, a touch roasty, chocolate, thin flavor. Not very good.

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2014
330 ml bottle at Fox and hounds, Ĺbenraa. Dark brown, almost black body with a thin and fast disappearing off-white head. Mild aroma of roasted malt and some liquorice. Flavor has mild, roasted malt, a hint of coffee and liquorice and low bitterness. Medium body and aftertaste. A light, uncomplicated and very refreshing dark lager.

Appearance: Clear dark brown with ruby highlights and finger thick tan head. Aroma: Corn, slight treacle note, toffee/caramel, bread and a note of dried fruit. Taste: Medium sweetness, low bitter and sourness. Palate: Thick grainy texture, light body, average carbonation, abrupt dry caramel malty finish. Comments: Tasty and slight lace.

Bottle@crock. Servere black brown. Caramalty no hops. Complex not bad. Good carb. Sweetness rules.

Maxbier (77) - Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2013
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.
