2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark beer like regular pilsener beer but black. Taste is little different than regular efes pilsen but not better

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark clear and with a initial promising taste of liquorice and caramel. However the beer turns out too sweet and malty with a quite neutral palate.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint pour from bottle of fairly dark brown with Amber notes at edging. Head is minimal and reduces to a halo with some spotting on top of the beer. Nose is sweet caramel and roasted nuttiness. Like roasted walnuts or hazelnuts... Almonds. Roasted almonds. Flavor is sweetly roasted caramel and mild spicy hop notes. Light to medium bodied but still full flavored. It’s not that bad, even if I don’t love the style. It’s moderately sweet, a little maybe for my taste.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown appearance, not that big of a head
Aroma/taste/palate of caramel and dark malts
There is a weird sourness at the end, no sure why
Too sweet, not bitter enough, and an odd beer to boot

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Pours dark reddish brown, not cloudy. Aroma of malts, sweet and roasty, but also boozy. Not bad for industrial... Hints of liquorice in the taste, otherwise quite boring. Bubbly finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly caramel aroma. Lovely dark brown appearance. Treacly caramel undertones and not so fizzy for a bottle.
