MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - OCT 21, 2007
500ml bottle: poured dark brown with a medium sized light brown head. Very rich smelling with roasted malts. Flavor is roasty, not near as rich as the aroma would suggest but still very nice. No residual sweetness lingering anywhere after swallowing. It’s not dry but in my opinion perfectly balanced. A very nice beer.

garza (568) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 18, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 Dark brown colour on the looks with beige head. Malty nose, far hints of caramel. Round roasted malty flavour, some chocolate notes there too. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, oily feel, average carbonation. Medium lasting after taste with that malty and light sweet-bitter touch Very good beer.

Pours dark slightly red, with a small quick disappearing head. Aroma has a lot of very roasted malts.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Grape Sense in Chalk Farm. Much more impressed with this than I was expecting. I’m a bit of a dark lager fan anyway but still, this is pretty tasty. Excellent semi-translucent dark brown / amber colour with a pretty stable mushroom coloured head. Really good sweet malt, chocolate and heavy coffee aroma with a very light sourness to it. Flavour very similar but with some light tobacco hoppage that to be honest lets it down just a little. A lick of card also does it no favours. Nice coffe malt finish brings it back. Decent stuff.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. Huge bubbly light brown head that mostly lasted. Good display of thick film like lacework. Somewhat clear dark mahogany color. Nice sniff of hops with notes of floral, hint of ashtray, light toasted malty notes, underlying caramel and grain sweet feel. Maybe even a hint of smoke in there as well. Medium bodied with a light dry texture and an average carbonation. Light sweet and bitter flavor. Somewhat dry and light bitter finish.

Tap... reminded me of a watered down Guinness. Not bad overall, but I like the light Budvar better.

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 16, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 0.5 l bottle. Dark brown colored body with, for dunkel quite big pale brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, caramel and coffee which are also present in the flavor. Somehow leaves watery impression, although not too much. Some bitterness present in the finish, which is Not too much carbonation. Not bad beer, but empty. //edit: Had it again, agree with everything said, just impaired the ratings.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - SEP 4, 2007
(Bottle BB 07/06/08) Roasted malty and caramel aroma. Dark red brown colour and large, light brownish head with fair/good lacing. Roasted malty, caramel and coffee flavour with a hint of licorice. Lively carbonated, chalky and medium-bodied palate. Tasty, well-balanced brew! 09/08/07

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2007
Brown, beige collapsing head. Malty aroma. Sweet. Faintly metallic. Hard carbonation. Mild flavour. Roasted malts with notes of malty sweetness. Vague hoppy bitter finish. Watery palate. Boring.
