Welcome relief from almost two weeks of lagers. Decent coffee aroma, thick mouthfeel and a great black colour. Very tasty .

tandembrauer (442) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 27, 2015
Bottle, bought in Kalavrita, Greece. Pours dark brown with little off-white head that quickly disappears. Aroma of dark bread, coffee. Tastes sweet, some sourness. Little hop bitterness.

Slaktmasken (64) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Köpt i någon supermarket på Kreta. Klart mörkare än det övriga sortimentet man kan hitta på Kreta. Doft av rostad malt vilket var trevligt för att bryta av all ljus lager man annars är "tvungen" att köpa där.

Dzhigga (206) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown color with medium fluffy head. Aroma of rye bread, coffee. Taste is lightly sweet with notes of roasted malt. Watery texture. Finish is medium with some bitterness. Fine dunkel.

A slightly disappointing lack of aroma aside this is a perfectly serviceable dark ale. If it was just a bit bolder then it’d be really nice. Fruity, resinous taste with a bit of a lingering smokiness.

The aroma is straight forward roasted grains. Like a grain coffee. Still mellow and milky. Taste is also narrow with accents on grain coffee. But with lots of water. What I enjoy is the creamy and soft mouth feel for what I will give extra points.

Clear, dark copper. Frothy light beige head. Malty, slightly roasted aroma. Similar flavour. Ok dry finish. Nicely balanced and not bad at all.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle, 5.2%. Good roasted and nicely sweetish aroma. Clear very dark brown colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is nicely roasted with a good vinous touch. Fruity and vinous finish with a milder roasted note. Late light chocolate aftertaste. More of a Schwarzbier than Dunkel, I guess. A nice suprise.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear coffee brown with airy off-white head. CLear aroma of roast and malt, with touches of hops and caramel. Bitter and roasty flavour, with notes of smoke and malt and touches of yeast. Roasty and malty aftertaste. Surprisingly good, and more like a Schwarzbier than a Dunkel.

MrBlueSky93 (361) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
On tap at many places across Crete. Pours black with slight reddish colour, single finger tan head. Aroma of coffee, smokiness, roasted malts, light milkiness too. Aroma of roasted malts, smokiness, coffee, chocolate and a touch of lactic in there too. Very nice at a decent price!

rosenbergh (8066) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 10/2015. From a kiosk in Athens, Greece. Black reddish colour with a tiny tan head. Coffee, milky sweetness, sweetness in general and some toasted malty notes in the aroma. The flavour is toasted malt, dryness, lots of coffee, café au lait, mild bitterness and sweetness. Too sweet and too much milky coffee for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
