Beerenberger's rating

Beerenberger (1591) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Aroma is sweet malt, red fruit, and notes of caramel. Pours a dark brown with a nice mostly diminishing tan head. The taste is lightly sweet. Toasty malts, caramel, with hints of dark fruit and coffee. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall, I was surprised - this was actually very good.

monk191 (1609) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Not bad for a domestic, but not great overall. Pours a pleasant deep Amber with little head. Smells malty. Taste is quite malty and a little watery. Had in the bottle in Istanbul.

shrubber85 (9999) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle. Roasted barley, toffee malt, and hay aroma. Dark brown with moderate tan head. Sweet molasses, toffee malt, and lightly bitter dry grass flavor. Decent body. A year past its ’best by’ date but still not bad.

Foxbush (1711) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2016 330 ml bottle. At the President Best Western in Istanbul. The beer poured deep dark black color with a tan head and modest lacing. Some nice notes of chocolate. The medium body beer has average carbonation. This is a nice everyday dunkel with some chocolate in the taste. The beer finishes smoothly with no bitter aftertaste. This is my first Turkish beers.

prawlie (1447) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle in Istanbul. Pleasant malt aroma. This is a fairly easy to drink dunkel without the best elements of the style and the usual limitations. Its malty, clean and a little slick, but better than I was expecting it to be.

Bottle. Tastes almost the same as regular Efes. A bit softer and a bit sweeter while looking dark.

hauxe (289) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2016
Pours with a fluffy head on a reddish-brown body. Caramel malt aroma. Mildly sweet, a little artificial tasting. Quite light bodied. Textureless. Disappointing.

stevoj (3595) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. Color and pour about right for the style. Aroma is mostly malt, but reminds of wet paper and school paste. Taste is initially very sweet with some hints of malt and chocolate, but really tastes like cola. Finishes dry and sticky, with more of the cloying sweetness. Near miss.

tommann (3210) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
500ml can at 5.5%. Pours dark reddy brown with a medium head. Aroma is coffee, caramel and dark red fruits. Taste has caramel to start. Dark red fruits in the finish with a little coffee in the aftertaste.
