3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@Hotel. Black chocolate aroma with some coffee, roasted malts. Black, light brown head, good lace. Starts pretty neutral, then light sweet, hint of cola, some coffee, roasted. Light and watery. Could certainly use some body. A bit one dimensional in the flavour that not very powerful either.

Almost black, not opaque, with reddish tones, good head, great lace. Nose of coffee, chocolate, and smoke. Taste of sweet malts, burnt malts, caramel, burnt coffee, chocolate. Mouth average ... it is, after all, a lager.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 One of the six beers that Craft produces (Craft is a fine Microbrewery that also has 2 Brewpub Restaurants in Athens). Very good schwarzbier,the best that craft makes. Brown shallow head. Full taste with chocolate, smoke, coffee and roasted malt as dominant flavors and aromas. A great beer that I love to consume on a regular basis. The tap version is way better than the bottle.

(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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 .

Athens, 07. Tried these beers as a tasters sample at the brew pub. All beers much better than the beer available in 99% of the bars in Athens, but nothing fantastic. This one was the best of the bunch, nice big roasted coffee malt taste.

A good beer overall. Pleasantly surprised to see that there is Greek beer that could keep me busy while visiting! This one feels like a bock, but with very large amounts of carbonation. I guess carbonation and hot weather usually go hand in hand.
