Marko (4068) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 18, 2009
Bottle purchased at the Interspar in the city center west in Graz (would’ve missed this one too if Ogi hadn’t pointed it out to me). 11.7°, brewed by Glubczyce. Poured a nice brown/red body with a small beige head that went away at a medium/fast pace. The nose is coffee and caramel, with a distinct presence of... something, praobably the pumkin seeds.The taste is more of the same, with that strange, intensive, spicy and bitter something floating in a sea of caramel, maybe notes of plantain. Definitely interesting and not that bad a beer.

Bottle brown, 330 ml
Appearance: Pours chockolate, brownish - red, cola like but more pale, saturation is like of a fizzy drink, head is rather poor, quickly diminishing, greyish white, brisky, short living.
Aroma: Nice aroma of Pumpkin, burned and slightly toasted, fresh, crispy malt at the background, gentle alcoholic note, low hoppy profile, coocoo candy notes, ginger root, definitely malty sided beer, reminding typical Dunkel with Munich malt.
Flavour: Very nice flavour, notes of dessert chockolate, burned malt, Munich dark malt, fat malty background, very crispy and honest, additional pumpkin seed giving the character to the beer insteadof poorly represented hops, bready notes, especially dark bread, gentle alcoholic note giving additional character, cacao, grainy, notes of coffee, roastyness.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is neutral.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 12, 2008
330ml bottle, at home with renffisch, 25th June 2008. Thanks babe :) Dark brown with a reddish tint. Great aroma of molasses, caramel and smokiness. The flavour is similar, with malty notes coming through. Quite thin but the flavour stays in the mouth. A nice, highly drinkable dark beer.

renffisch (843) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
bottle i brought for ethereal from austria. pumpkin seed beer, funny idea. thankfully it doesn’t taste of it at all. there is a hint in the nose mingling with coffe, leather and a claer leathery malt nose. Dark reddish brown in colour with a thin tan rim. Smooth carbonation, lovely and light beer. Notes of malty cereals, milk chocolate and dried fruits. surprisingly light and easy drinking.

Tranquillity (1422) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of chocolate, quite weak though. Dark brown, small beige head. Taste somthing... a bit dirty. Not too good. My girlfriend claims the finish is close to pumpkin seeds, but I wouldn’t know.

FatPhil (9617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2007
330ml bottle, shared with Tranquility - thanks! More a schwartze or a dunkel than any other style. Jet black in our lighting conditions, with a small beige head. Smooth chocolatey aroma. Strong caramelly malt taste, both richly roasted and fairly burnt, but also a lighter maltiness too. Slightly winey, and some dark fruits, fleshy raisins or other berries. Some hints of juniper berries too. Very pleasant.

medium-bodied dunkel. It has some strange aspect of the pumpkin but mild roastiness is its major feature, quite balanced, some cocoa is there too,
