TBone (16163) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2011
Bottled 355ml (BZ, BB 061111)
Deep amber color, steady creamy beige head. Caramelly, bock-like bready, toasty maltyness. Light to medium-bodied. Cola-like caramelly flavor, sweetish with light harsh maltyness in the finish. Suprisingly similar to some FIN/SWE/EST Viennas. Nothing special but way too better than expected.

A crisp and smooth dark lager. Has a hint of wine gum like fruit in the background. Alright.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. A - Clear dark copper color. Fairly large, foamy, bubbly, off-white head. Disappears pretty fast with almost no lace left. S - Toasted nutty/grainy malt. Sweet aroma with a touch of toffee and caramel. Hints of grassy hops and a minerally aroma. T - Similar to the nose with a touch more caramel/toffee sweetness. Initially there is a pretty strong grainy taste that is present throughout. Just a faint hint of hop, primarily grassy flavors. Touch of fruitiness that only adds to the sweetness at the finish. M - Light body with average carbonation. A sweet, dry feel on the finish. D - A little too sweet and drying to be all that drinkable. Not really balanced, just too sweet and malty, but not in an enjoyable way. Notes: Nothing special here. Plenty of grainy and sweet malt. About what I was expecting (maybe a little better given this is a German style from Mexico). Not horrible, but I probably wouldn’t search for this.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2010
Ruby with a thinning, off-white ring. Sweet, noseable aroma of dried fruits, muscovado and honey. Suggestions of cake, figs, liquorice and chocolate raisin that wouldn’t be out of place in a considerably stronger beer (barley wine, doppelbock or dubbel) of some quality. Having plumbed the depths of industrial Mediterranean ’dark beers’, this was a pleasant surprise when I really wasn’t expecting one.
