Koelschtrinker (13798) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Plörriger und überaus trockener Malzantrunk mit wenig hefigen Beinoten, leicht röstig. Alles in allem ist das Bier aber mild und langweilig, die Trockenheit ist zu stark. Zum Ende immer röstiger und damit besser werdend, weniger plörrig, im Nachgeschmack herb, die Röstigkeit ist hier gut abgepasst. 12/8/8/8/7/8

Oakes (13660) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Dark brown and unfiltered. Relatively faint caramel nose. Smooth dark malts - light toffee, hint if roast. Good clean if simple dark lager.

Bottle. [thanks to the parents and my bigbro]
Pours deep red-brown with a fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of toasted caramel, lightly roasted, some metallic notes (quite charcoal-like). Medium carbonation, a tad on the thin side. Flavour is rather sugary sweet. Light toasted, some roasted notes and a fair, grainy, earthy bitterness in the finish. Okay.

Praise for Snegurochka who provided this one for our rating session. Clear, dark amber body, tiny beige head. Roasted caramel malts to the nose, bready notes. Plain roasted sweet malts in flavour. Dry, sour-bitter end. About par (Tromsř, 22.06.2011).

JorisPPattyn (8688) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2009
Good dense and finebubbled, dirty-cream head over cola-coloured beer. Sweet dark malts, dark bread, maybe some molasses and manure. Sweet, dark malts, more dark bread. Bit soft drink finish, but aftertaste is bitterish, even hoppy. Rather spritzy MF, if not fizzy; light bodied. Very drinkeable, rather agreable dark lager. Beats anything I had so far from Iceland by lightyears.
