Nevalainen (517) - FINLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Hazy brown color with beige head. Aroma is a little roasty, caramel and malt. Taste is little bitter, notes of chocolate and malt. Well balanced beer, but it’s missing some more power in taste. Still a good beer.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - FEB 23, 2016
Flasche (50 cl) von Weiß-Blau, Berlin-Charlottenburg. - Tiefes Kastanienbraun mit schön rubinroter Tönung, leicht trüb. - In der Nase nicht zu kräftige aber kernige Röstaromen: Brotkruste, Malzkaffee und warmes dunkles Malz. - Antrunk weich dunkelmalzig und mild malzsüß. Vollmundig und weich, fast sahnig bei milder Rezenz, hüllt es die Zunge ein wie eine weiche Decke. Ganz zarte Säure, Anklänge an Mokka und Weinbrandkirschen. Im Abgang milde erdige Hopfenherbe, die aber im Hintergrund bleibt. Unerwartet trockener, ausreichend bitterer Nachtrunk. - Sehr schönes, weiches Dunkles mit üppigem Körper, mild aber nicht zu knapp gehopft. Deutlich weniger kernig röstig-herb als das Leupser Dunkel. Wie so viele Dunkle darf auch dieses nicht zu kühl getrunken werden, um seinen vollen aromatischen Reiz zu entfalten.

kappldav123 (5829) - GERMANY - FEB 9, 2015
Thanks to kevnic2008 for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild, fine malty, not too roasty. Light fruity notes of plum. Finish more dry, still mild malty, light metallically. Okay.
