jgb9348 (4735) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Very hazy dark brown body with a thinnish tan head that shows well and a very cloudy body. Aroma of brown sugar, cardamom, light spices and a bunch of malt - nice actually. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt and alcohol flavour with a pungency of nuts and light spices with a good finish of brown sugar. Aftertaste shows a lot of character, mostly a roasted peat flavour with some nice sweetness and quite a bit of malt and nuts. Overall, a nice beer with suprisingly good flavour and complexity. Nice to sample - I sampled this 50 cL can purchased on the streets of Istanbul, Turkey purchased for TL3,50 in Istanbul on 15-August-2011 sampled the same day.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 24, 2011
from Belek, Turkey - clear ruby-brown beer with a solid and creamy beige head; correct lacework; a fair aroma of mocha, toasted with biscuity notes; medium-bodied and creamy palate, moderate sweetness and a low bitterness; long coffeish aftertaste with light chocolatey notes - not bad at all

Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Karamellig süßer Geruch, nach Kaffee. Süßer Kaffee Antrunk, etwas herb, total eigen. Karamellig (!!!), im Mittelteil etwas bitter, leicht röstig. Nach kurzem süßen Schub pendelt sich diese ein, das Bier ist hier leicht wässrig. Insgesamt sehr aromatisch und karamellig, im Abgang dann eher "normal" malzig, immerhin etwas an süßen Kaffee erinnernd. Sehr eigenes und für die Türkei interessantes Bier an das man sich erstmal gewöhnen muss. Test vom 11.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,8,10,9,9 - 8,75

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2010
Bottled. A chestnut colored beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of caramel combined with medium notes of malt and light notes of bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and bread. Nice Turkish beer.

trapped (783) - New York City, TURKEY - OCT 15, 2010
Dark brown color, frothy head, very strong coffee taste, weak body, abrupt finish. The coffee taste is so strong that it disturbs one’s sense. You are not sure whether you drink beer or ice coffee!

Bottle from Istanbul. Lovely brown color. Caramel, a little spicy, some cinnamon. Sugar. Extremely sweet and malty, in fact way too sweet and malty.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours chestnut with a cream head vanishing to a halo, and the nearest thing to lace I’ve seen from a bira, with the exception of the weizens. Very English, brown ale sweetness aroma of coffee-dunked butter biscuit (not diacetyl) and Crunchie. Sadly, the flavour doesn’t build on that; silky and artificial with a nasty, incongruous back taste; some redeeming cinder toffee, Werthers rolled in granulated Kenco, coffee cake, well-concealed alcohol. Heavily flawed by a nagging, burnt cardboard bitterness, but drinkable all the same, and there’s plenty of inferior beers in Turkey if you go digging..
