While taking in the view of "Little Venice" in Mykonos... Dark amber brown with tan head. Good balance of malt flavors with some dark chocolate notes... Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 7, 2014
Can, 0.33l, courtesy of Simon. Clear dark brown color with medium frothy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel and mild roasted malt. Taste starts with sweet caramel, follows by roasted and slightly smoked malt with mild bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. This one goes far beyond ordinary Greek brew...

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle in Athens. June 2014. Dark brown with a medium head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, some coffee, toffee and dark fruit. On the sweet side but drinkable.

bwa5879 (601) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Brown nearly black pour with thin layer of beige head. Average to lively carbonation, very thick viscous mouthfeel, crisp finish. Light aroma of mostly carmel, some chocolate too. Taste is strong robust carmel, smokey roasty malts, very nicely blended with chocolate, some metallic hops on finish. Great greek porter, perhaps british or US influenced.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
Found in a café in Corfu town. Sweet malts, a bit roasted, some caramel, not a lot of bitterness. After loads of lagers this was a nice break. Good to see a dark-ish beer in Greece.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
A nice change from the mass of crappy and generic lagers I’ve found in Greece so far. The pour is a dark brown with a frothy tan head. The nose has a nice hint of roasted character as well as a bit of espresso nose. Sweet and toasted chocolate malts and a nice roast overall. But still not a very good brew.

CanCrusher (599) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 20, 2014
Can 0,33L. Have this one just a day before date expired. Clear, dark, ruby brown colour with large, compact, light brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, caramel, strong coffee, roasted, nutty malts and grassy hops. Taste starts light bitter with caramel and slightly bitter chocolate, than finish light bitter. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation. I’m positvely suprised....

evergreen0199 (1924) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from Carrefour, Chania, Crete, Greece. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Roasty, malty aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, some dark fruit and coffee. Drank a fair bit of this in Crete as there wasn’t much else on offer. Decent enough Dunkel.
