NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Sweet malt, caramel and mild roasted nuts in the aroma. Brown with hints of dark amber. Small head. Sweet caramel malt from fore to finish. Caramel and even some chocolate notes. Very one dimensional, but also smooth and comforting.

heavy (2120) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 8, 2009
29/10 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured darker reddish brown body with medium sized beige head. Quite ordinary caramel and coffee aroma. Flavor was balanced between sweetish caramel and coffee roasted malts. Pretty simple and none of those two is too prominent. Thinner to medium body, still it had quite short, slightly caramel finish. Some herbal hops might be emerging here, as well. Didn’t particularly like it as of ts simplicity and lack of stronger character, but it’s a decent brew for sure.

frankenkitty (1959) - 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 (1869) - Esbjerg, 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 (1863) - Loveland, 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.
