Grima (2174) - 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!

Vighals (1806) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2014
Mørk rødbrun klar med lavt beige skum. Lett karamell, trevirke og kandissukker. Smaker søtt med lett bitterhet i avslutningen. Medium kullsyre.

bleeng (1565) - 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.

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.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Thanks to kappeldave123 for this beer. Dark caramel and toasted nut color with a thin brown head. Nose was dead on snack pack chocolate pudding (thanks Kagg!) with bready malts. Flavor of molasses and chocolate with a smooth soft finish.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet, roasted malty flavour with hints of coffee. Slighly dry and bitter finish. Medium bodied, smooth and easydrinking beer. I enjoyed it. Nothing special, but still a quite nice brew.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 bottle thanks to KAggie and zinister. First American to rate this. Yes! This poured dark brown with a cola-like texture. Smell was roasted malt, but had some funkiness to it that I couldn’t put a description to. Taste was of roasted malt and molasses. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin with a dry finish. Interesting. Definitely different.

scotty (1078) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2006
Nice mid-tawny colour.The good off white head looked as if it would hang around for a while, but after my first swig it seemed to give up and died very quickly! The nose is quite rich and malty with more than a hint of spice, there are some nice floral hops at the back ...a big plus point. A fairly full bodied brew with a good malt presence, but well balanced by a distinctive hoppy bitterness, a crackin’ beer. This was bought by my wife (who constantly moans about the amount of beer I drink) at one of those continental markets that appear from time to time in a town near you!!!
