Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Draft at the brewpub in Athens. The body is a clear, dark, chestnut brown color with crimson highlights. A small, foamy, tan colored head leaves random flares of sudsy lacing on the glass. The aroma showcases scorched caramel malts, molasses, indiscernible dark fruits, cocoa, and earthy, bitter hops. The flavor follows those same lines, with perhaps a touch of day-old coffee lending further bitterness. Very earthy overall. Medium bodied and smooth, finishing quite dry. Solid beer, and second only to the smoked lager amongst the Craft brews that I got to try.

Bottle from Nightfall, thanks! Deep dark brown color, almost black. Roastaroma with cappucino. Malty, roasty sweet flavor with cappucino and a hint of ash. Also a hint of pear. Pleasant session beer.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 4, 2007
Draught, tasted at the brewpub, dark with little head. A sweet toffee and coffee aroma. Quite strong carbonation, but also a strong roasted coffee flavour. A bit weak on the palate though.

JPMarat (68) - GREECE - OCT 15, 2010
Craft is the finest Greek beer.I,myself prefer the smoked one but this is great,too.A fine,black lager who has a fine carbonation,it’s as bit refreshing as a lager and yet very malty like a dunkel.It’s a very fine beer.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2011
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.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 21, 2008
Draught at Craft Brewery, Athens. Rough notes from June 08. Pours a deep brown with dark head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee notes. Sweet malt flavour with some toffee and chocolate. Good carbonation and good finish for a lager.

[RBESG, Sheffield]
Grand Tasting @ The Harlequin, Sheffield.
Pours deep red-brown with a nice, creamy, beige head. Pleasant, sweet chocolate aroma with some roasted tones. A bit thin, soft carbonation. Flavour has caramel, softly roasted. Fairly long, lingering bitterness. Okay.
