2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark, ruby highlighted beer. Thin tan head. Fruity and malty. Fairly thin body however. Flavour is slightly soapy, some malt, but not nearly as complex as I was hoping for. Light honeyish flavour.

(On tap at the brewpub) Aroma of malts (roasted, coffee). Opaque, black coloured with a thin, brown and lasting head. Taste is of malts (roasted, coffee) again and some bitterness. Quite a sparkling dunkel. okay.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Superb stuff. Almost black in colour with a large frothy head. The aroma is of coffee and toast and the taste includes chocolate, coffee, liquorice, burnt malt and finishes with a hint of sweetness and spice. Smooth, medium bodied and one of the finest dark lagers I've tried. (draught at the pub)

Sampled draught at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm, Sweden.
Very dark brown with huge, firm off-white head. Rather sweet and slightly roasty. Light bodied and easy going with clean mouthfeel and a hint of coffee. Low bitterness.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Draught at the brewpub: Dark brown coloured. Has a huge light brown lasting head. Appearance is simply majestic. Malts and cocoa in the aroma. Notes of light hoppyness. The flavour is smooth and heavenly wellbalanced. There is a light touch of cocoa on the tongue and lips, thats just out of this world. Makes this beer highly drinkable. The beer finishes with a full mouthfeel and a tender kiss of bitterness. Try this if you can. It’s awesome.
