nearbeer (4222) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2009 500 ml screw top, bb 14.01.09. Nearly opaque dark chocolate with a small lasting head. Aromas of molasses, fresh sweet corn and a whiff of woodsmoke. Tastes of molasses, cola, corn, peppery dry grass, bitter wood. Light-medium body is tingly and dry, but a bit too frothy.

From a bottle--Poured a light dark brown-black body with a hefty beige head. Slightly oxidized, crisp and creamy. Finished spicily hopped and mildly toasty. Not bad. Not great/

There’s not much to this, the taste is thin with a taste of cola and licorice. Its kinda of thin, the rest of the beer taste weak.

500ml screw top bottle... classy! Anyway, pours clear, dark walnut with a fizzy beige head. Very sweet caramel nose, grassy and grainy. Light body. Sweet caramel and grain flavors, earthy and lightly chocolaty. A bit of dry bitterness in the finish, a touch of charcoal. Meh.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Dark mahogany color with a Garnet glint when held to the light. Moderate head of dried bone colored bubbles. Somewhat worty in scent with dark caramel, toasted malt, sweet roasted peanuts and waft of smoke. Very metallic from the first quaff. I feel like I am sucking on cubes of aluminum and iron, along with a 9 volt battery in my mouth. Some sweet caramel malt and mild acidity add to the mix. The acidity just builds and while creating a cleansing sensation, I fell my mouth is being sanitized. I could see cooking with this, but it’s not that much of a brew for sitting around with.

MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - APR 19, 2008
(screw cap bottle, courtesy of Koelschtrinker) Clear, dark brown colour with a medium-sized, not very persistent off-white foamy head. Slightly dusty, light-sweet and roasty malty nose, slightly burnt with a tinge of metal. Light-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Roast-malty taste with light burnt notes and a whiff of caramel; dry and moderately bitter finish with grassy and slightly metallic hops (16.04.08).

Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is hard to come by but some caramel malts come around after awhile. Flavor is a little better with a nice dark fruit and a earthness to it. Nothing really special with this one but it is easy to drink.
