frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2005
Rating for "Ferdinand Dark Beer". Label slightly different than pictured with a white background at the bottom. ABV was 4.5%, as stated.

Best before 29/03/05, consumed on 01/04/05... damn! Bottle poured a deep, ruby red body with a small tan head. Sweet, bready malt aroma that was a little juicy. Flavor went from sweet to sour, then finished sweet again. Not many discernable flavors.

heavy (2075) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 8, 2009
29/10 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured darker reddish brown body with medium sized beige head. Quite ordinary caramel and coffee aroma. Flavor was balanced between sweetish caramel and coffee roasted malts. Pretty simple and none of those two is too prominent. Thinner to medium body, still it had quite short, slightly caramel finish. Some herbal hops might be emerging here, as well. Didn’t particularly like it as of ts simplicity and lack of stronger character, but it’s a decent brew for sure.

Derbeth (198) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 24, 2013
Aroma: dark chocolate, some roasty notes, caramel, slight herbs from hops. Black colour, frothy head. Medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness. Oily feel, soft carbonation. Not bad, fortunately is not too sweet, but also nothing exceptional.
