humlelala (969) - DENMARK - AUG 21, 2012
(33 cl bottle from On the Rocks, Plakias, Crete; Produced on May 25th 2012) Pours a clear dark brown with tan head. Decent retention and good lace. Aroma is definitely toffee and what to me resembles brown ale although it might be schwarzbier as I don’t have much knowledge of the style other than that it is dark and bottom fermented. I don’t detect many fruity esters in this beer. No hops detectable either. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a sweet finish. Taste follows the nose with sweet toffee being the predominant impression.. Once again pleasant to find well balanced non-pale alesmin the Cretan summer climate. Decently drinkable.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
September 2008: This brewery doesn’t mess around with fancy names. The four fonts on offer at the only bar I’ve seen this beer at were: Lager, Black Lager, Red Ale and Weiss Bier. Poured into the breweries own glassware, this beer was jet black with a good tan head on top. It looked impressive sat next to the nuts and warming in the early evening sun by the harbour in Chania, Crete. The aroma was all about roasted and burnt malts, as was the taste. Sadly it was just like drinking a watered down, fizzy Porter or Stout. There was no creaminess or rich body to it at all. It was a lager, but black and with a smell (unlike most lagers). The beer just didn’t feel right, it looked so wholesome and inviting, but failed to live up to its looks. It was too fizzy and lacked body.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours dark, thin looking with a small head that recedes almost immediately. Looks like a glass of coca cola with no ice. Nose is roasted marshmallows, small hint of smoke and a little bit of fruit. Flavor is sweet mostly. Toward the end it bitters a bit only to take on a metallic flavor. Also a bit watered down. Light bodied, mouthfeel is oily and slippery with a medium to long aftertaste. Drinkable, but I wouldn’t order on purpose .

AlexGR (113) - GREECE - JAN 20, 2012
Dark brown color with a small head. Coffee, dark chocolate and roasted taste and aroma. Some hops on the finish. Not a fan of black beers. But it wasn’t bad.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours black as Coke with a small off-white head.Aroma is strong nutty malts, light smoke and liquorice. Taste is strong malty, very delicious, sticky caramel, dark chocolate. Light hoppy finish.
