very dark brown with a white head. smell is mild, some malt. taste is of malt, very little roast. some caramel sweetness, sweetness is only countered with astringency rather than bitterness. carbonation is strong and harsh. poor crap, a typical east asian "black beer"

Grzesiek79 (4038) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Dry, czyli wytrawne. Sadzilem ze bedzie jednak slodkie i ze to sciema. Ale, ale nawet ciut bylo wytrawne, piana srednia i srednio trwala. dosc ciemna barwa z licznymi przeswitami czerwieni. Karmelowe, zarazem delikatne piwo, malo slodowe, taka slodkosc jak z ciasteczek oreo. z podpalonym cukrem. Ale pewna doza wytrawnosci io goryczki takze bylo. Zwlaszcza na zakonczenie. Ogolnie sredniak

Clear very dark brown with little brown head. Aroma is licorice, dark chocolate, dust, sour corn. Taste is more dust, a watery bitterness, some soapy sourness. Soapy finish. Ugly.

50 cl can from a convenience store in Seoul, Korean import. Dark cola color, almost black with a deep red hue. Big beige head, lacing, good looking. Light aroma of toasted malts, starch, dust. Taste is moderately bitter, partly sourish, soft to average carbonation, light body, smooth texture, dry finish (nonetheless!), clean, crisp, a little woody. Liked.

On tap at Eleven Rooftop Bar. Not as bad as I’d expected, the finish was dry and it lacked any sweetness, mild roasted flavours.

Pyobon (1315) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2016
(Bottle) Pours black with red hints and thin loose tan head. Modest aroma - hints of nuts and cardboard. Light bodied and fizzy. Unremarkable taste - some toffee sweetness with some vague dark roast toasty hints. Drinkable.

hawthorne00 (3546) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle. Clear dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is pretty shy, but there’s some nuts, cocoa and caramel. Thin. taste has some licorice too. There’s a bit more flavour than expected after the very modest aroma. Low bitterness. Is dry at the end. A bit empty, but mostly dull.
