Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. It’s slightly hazy red mahogany with a huge, creamy and long lasting head. The aroma has notes of licorice, dark syrup, caramel and roasted malt. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and notes of licorice, caramel, roasted malt, syrup, and the finish is rather dry and refreshing.

Moravius (890) - Beijing, CHINA - APR 7, 2013
On tap at Gasthausbrauerei Alt-Giessen in Gießen. - Yeasty and a bit fruity. Some roasted malt. Finish is just a little bit bitter, with some rather unpleasant hop notes. - Still drinkable, but there are far better Dunkel beers around.

Malziger, süß röstiger Beginn. Etwas schokoladig, passend trocken, geringe Würzigkeit. Der Fokus ist eindeutig auf das Malz gerichtet, was angenehm erscheint. 10/9/10/10//10
