Characterized by a taste full and round,which is in the medium-high alcoholic content the opportunity to express its full potential. The hot red colour and creamy foam and persistent crown in an exemplary way the features of taste, enhancing its value.

thirstyrabbit (1740) - Tallinn, - JAN 25, 2013
Small brown bottle. Copper body with a minimal head. Light toast and nuttiness in the aroma. Taste is too watery for a Dunkler Bock. This is similar to something that you’d get when you added water to a real Dunkler Bock. It’s a toasty Vienna at best. However, it would probably be a nice find in a random Italian store that otherwise sells only pale lagers.

CLear light brown/ruby with little beige head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, a little roast and raisins. Taste is malty sweet with some caramel/honey and roast in the finish. Smooth. Very low carbonation. Nice.

Ciekawa barwa, piwo przejrzyste, piana niska. Nasycenie średnie. W smaku nic specjalnego, stosunkowo mocna goryczka trochę ratuje piwo.

Benzai (14078) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle shared by Inoven. Clear dark amber to red-brown color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, sweetish, a hint of chestnut, slightly brown candy sugar. Average body and carbonation.

Inoven (304) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
Flesje thuis gedeeld. Kleur is roodbruin. Weinig aroma, ietsje houtig. Smaak van hout, fruit , kastanje. Weinig nasmaak.

Rask0lnikov (743) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2016
Ruby brown colour. White medium head. Sweet, caramelly, somehow metallic, bit malty aroma. Caramelly beginning. Sweetness with hints of malts in the middle. Quite sweet end. Rather light bodied, medium carbonated, very sweet beer with not very interesting palate. If you have only Saku beer in the menu, then one should order second bottle, but otherwise not a very impressive beer.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
Dolciastra e metallica, inizialmente sembra una bock industriale passabile, ma si fa fatica ad arrivare in fondo.

"Red" beers seem to be quite popular in Italy and this one is pretty typical. Amber pour with a thin head. Caramel malt with a bit of sweetness. Not much else.

dexcansino (575) - Andalucía, SPAIN - SEP 28, 2015
Creo que es más corriente de lo que me pareció, pero me la bebí en un bar en Venecia que se llama Paraíso Perdido con un conciertazo y gente rara por doquier. Así que gana puntos sí o sí.

Bottiglia. La finezza delle bollicine è compatta, destinata a vita breve. Il corpo è strutturato, di colore ambrato. Al naso sentori di nocciola. La persistenza gustativa buona e decisamente l’intensità gustativa è elevata. Sensazioni finali soddisfatte.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Baked bread in aroma and a little bit of diacetyl. Light amber, transparent color. Foam quickly disappears, almost no lacing. Average carbonation. In taste there is baked bread and caramel behind. Rather sweet. Average bitterness and quite long bready palate.
Earlier Rating: 4/27/2015 Total Score: 2.7
