Very dark blackish color. Head dissolves quickly. Taste of burned caramel, ash with hints of dried fruits. Not bad but it is quite particular and needs special occasions.

Cristobal37 (795) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 15, 2016
Light aroma of roasted malts. Nice deep brown pour with foamy head. Very sweet malts then some burnt toast followed by elegant bitterness. Really fine tmavy style beer. One of the best in memory. At times slightly watery, but I think it’s because I’ve been drinking too many strong ales lately. Tastes really good, will have to come back to this one again.

Cask at Charlie’s bar, Copenhagen. Near black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, roasty notes and light overripe dark fruit. Flavour is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

mrjez (462) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAY 8, 2016
330ml bottle from Yamaya. Pours a dark brown, I can just see through it held up to the light. Finger of beige head that falls to a thin level. Nice aroma of dark malt mixed with Czech noble hops. A hint of toffee, licorice. Flavour is similar, lightly roasted, a touch nutty, a bit watery in the backend. It’s light-medium with a slight chewy feel, good medium carbonation. Overall a decent dunkel/schwarz, on par with some good German imports.

500ml bottle. Very dark brown in color with a one finger tan head. Roasty aroma, molasses, syrup. Fairly sweet flavor, minimal bitterness, molasses and roast. Medium bodied and slick on the feel. Pretty good.

mikske79 (1487) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - APR 19, 2016
Aan de geur is niet veel speciaals. Er komt een beetje donkere schuimkop op als je hem uitschenkt. De smaak doet denken aan een stout enzo. Verbrand, koffie. Maar zeker niet slecht.

Bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a lasting beige head. Aroma is mid sweet and dry with dark malts, caramel, chocolate, some red fruits, spices toffee, and coffee. Medium, sharp, carbonation with a medium body. Flavors of caramel, grains, milk chocolate and toffee. Nutty with hints of licorice in the finish. Good balance and refreshing.

Maersk (156) - MOLDOVA - APR 3, 2016
Dark brown with creamy head (not very thick but stays quite long). Smells malt, wine and ripe fruit. Tastes coffee, roasted bread crumbs. Medium to thick body with the ficus on sweeter side. Aftertaste has some kind of unpleasant sour spike. But overall quite good and drinkable.
