From a growler at Warners on the Bay. Apparently it’s a dark pilsner, pours almost black with a tan head, the hops flavour kicks in after the rich roasted malt. I liked it.

mkel07 (3142) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2014
On tap at Scratch Bar. Rating from April 2014. There are hints of smokiness that gets in your nose and throat and the beers pours a dark brown colour.

Nice refreshing lager with just a touch of roast and hops. Great looking beer pure black with a tan head.

Confusing, but not a bad drop. The nose convinces you you’re about to drop into a double IPA, whilst the colour is saying malt, malt. Well, a bit of both don’t hurt. On tap at the Wheaty.

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
Draught as a pot size at The Scratch, Brisbane. On July 21, 2013.
As "Imperial Black Pilsner".
Clear dark red to black color, teal head. Sweet, malty, a bit roasted taste. Roasted, slight bit metallic aftertaste. Medium but high co2 mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Sweet, malty scent.

Not much on the aroma but looks good. Taste and palate lacking, slight roast but then has a wet cardboard finish. Average.

Had on tap at Murrays bar in Manly. A very nice and enjoyable beer. Not a session beer, but still a good beer.

Niksko (315) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2013
On tap at Beer Deluxe. Pours a dark black with a two finger creamy tan head. Aroma is hoppy, with a slight smoky note. Flavour is slightly sweet, orange peel, hops, peach, and a mild bitter finish. Not bad, but a little generic. Also, it’s more of a black IPA than a pilsener.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 15, 2012
Draught at Murray’s a Manly. Pours black with a medium white head. Smells of grass and citrus hops. Tastes of medium sweetness, medium bitter and large grassy component. Light-medium bodied, light carbonation, oily texture. Pleasant and refreshing.

Dredd (687) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2012
On tap at Josie bones. Amazing aroma, smells like a pilsener but doesn’t look like one. Very spicy aroma, black malts make for some nice coffee flavors and finishes with a nice sweetness and some good bitterness.
