McTapps (3919) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2013
Pours out of the swing-top bottle in a unclear dark brown colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of malt and caramel. Taste of dark nuts, caramel, nuts, vanilla, barley and dull hops. Hints of barrel. Easy to drink, quaffable. Solid beer.

MichaelAwesome (3919) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2013
Typisches Dunkel. Malzig, etwas nussig, leicht karamellig. Da es etwas dünn wirkt, geht es dennoch ganz gut runter. Recht ok für zwischendurch.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle from kappeldave123. Thanks!
Pours a deep, shoe-polish brown with an aroma of Jello chocolate pudding snack pack; flavor follows suit but adds a touch of molasses. Average mouthfeel. Nice beer that looks like a lion but purs like a kitty.

Grima (2089) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Das Dunkle ist im Glas nicht dunkel, sondern tiefschwarz! Der cremige Schaum verfliegt leider recht schnell. Geruchlich malzig röstig, minimal rauchig und zudem noch süß. Schon beim Geruch liegt eine große Aromenvielfalt vor. Der Antrunk fällt süßmalzig aus, der Nachgeschmack wird wesentlich röstiger und hat auch was rauchiges an sich. Das Bier entfaltet seine Aromen von Anfang bis Ende! Wirklich ein absolutes Spitzenbier, das zudem noch überaus süffig ausfällt!

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Dark brown with a light brown head. Sweetmalty aroma with some toasted and roasty notes, cooked vegetables and syrup. Abit too harsh bitterness in the flavor while the sweetness works. Its even abit creamy.

bleeng (1513) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Thanks to kappeldave123 for this beer at Zinisters tasting. It was nice being the first USA’ers to rate this beer. Very black and dark with a small head. Nose of malt and medicine. Taste is of a full body, chewy, strong burnt malts, sticky. Different but nice.
