kerenmk (2697) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle at IST airport, January 2015. Clear and very dark brown with a quickly dissolving beige head. Malt and sweet caramel aroma, then some limestone. Sweet, caramel taste with a little chocolate candy. Medium body, slightly chocolatey-malty aftertaste. Not too fresh but surprisingly ok.

Dark lager almost pilsner smell...dark red appearance, taste is smooth and slightly roasted, malty but not heavy, good beer that you could drink several of...

Butters (3869) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Finally found a dark beer in istanbul. A lityle vegetal on the aroma. Very much caramel and toffee with a slight creaminess. Not horrible. Hella loft better than the tuborg I’ve been drinking all week!

mjs (4887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
(Keg, 0.5 l - 5.5 % ABV - BB 290315, thanks Marduk, 20141231) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel and cough mixture. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, chocolate, cough mixture, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, harsh and bitter. There were some good things in this beer but the unpleasant ones hid them too quickly.

Kinz (3376) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle picked up outside the Morocco section of the World Showcase at Disney’s Epcot. Poured a clear dark amber, slight head. Aroma was syrupy dark malt. Flavor matched, distinct flavor of unfermented wort. Barely enough hop bitterness to keep things under control. Not horrible, but not great. But it at least had flavor. There were other probably far better beers around Epcot, but this was a bird in hand moment to try something new.

Cybercat (3578) - Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Malty aroma has a caramel and cinnamon overtone. Flavor has caramel, malt, and connamon tones plus a hint of cloves. Texture is not overly firm, but has decent fizz. This one should make you purr.

artmcd8 (1855) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle from Vintage Estates. I shouldn’t buy shitty beer from other countries unless I am in said country. This stuff pours a clear brown cola color with no head. Sweet and tangy. Slight bitterness to it. Kinda flat. Kinda gross.

Dzhigga (162) - Kirov, RUSSIA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Brown color with thin head. Aroma of cacao and caramel. Taste is medium sweet. Aftertaste is not long, with some coffee notes. OK turkey dunkel. Drinkable & the best turkish beer for me.
