frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2005
Rating for "Ferdinand Dark Beer". Label slightly different than pictured with a white background at the bottom. ABV was 4.5%, as stated.

Best before 29/03/05, consumed on 01/04/05... damn! Bottle poured a deep, ruby red body with a small tan head. Sweet, bready malt aroma that was a little juicy. Flavor went from sweet to sour, then finished sweet again. Not many discernable flavors.

Stefano (1901) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2006
Red brown colour with a off-white head. Light roasted malty coffee aroma and taste. Medium body and a light sweet finish. Palate is nice and solid, and the beers last impression is a dry bitterness.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Red apple in color. Full foaming cream. Sweet roast and chocolate aromas, with hints of raisin and dust. Quite nice. Sweet malts and caramel with a hint of banana in the flavor. Not bad really, for a beer like this.

MarkoNm (1734) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a small tan colored head. Sweet aroma, some caramel and fruity notes. Some alcohol too. The taste was slightly too sweet and malty - a bit unpleasant. Too bad, was promising much more.

Tap, at Ferdinanda, in Prague on 13 July 2010. Red-brown, with a thin offwhite head. Plenty of roast malts and a grassy hop kick. Quite a herby aftertaste and a zingy mouthfeel.
