4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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 .

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.

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.

Perhaps the best beer of Craft microbrewery. Medium body, nice aromas and flavors with long duration aftertaste. Classic dunkel.
