Light toasted, herbal notes and light malts on the nose. Malt syrup, a toasted sweetness and a pulpy light bitterness. Medium body and light doughy. Light sickening.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (330ml bought in Split, Croatia):
Dark, quite rich aroma from this one with some roasted malts and a nutty smell too. There is some caramel and light toffee notes along with some burnt sugar, touches of chocolate and darker fruits too.
Black with a tiny, mainly bubbly off-white coloured head that is short lived and as such a bit disappointing.
Sweet to begin with along with lots of sugar and a touch of lighter coffee. I could detect some caramel, toffee and dark fruits such a figs and raisins.
Smooth with a good amount of carbonation, a medium body and plenty of sweetness. It goes down well, with a dry but not overly dry finish.
Very nice to drink and somewhat surprising considering I found this one in a Croatian supermarket in the height of summer. Even in almost 40 degree heat this one went down well with a solid flavour and great taste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Pours a nice dark brown with a red hue and has a half inch tan head that fades fast. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and some caramel. Has a roasted malt and caramel aroma. The body is mostly full, but slightly on the thin side. Rather sweet and reminds me of a flat Coke. Very easy to drink and a great thirst quencher, but not overly great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of roasted malt, coffee and grass. There is also some yeast but roasted aroma dominate. Mouthfeel is creamy, little watery with light carbonation. This beer I could easly find and when I like to drink black beer this one I choose.

Draught at mike’s Place, Tel Aviv. Sold as house specialty beer, like in many other places in Israel. In the darkness looks almost opaque dark brown with a condensed, creamy white head. Fresh grainy caramel aroma, a little wet earth. Fresh mild bitterness, malty. Medium body, lively carbonation, caramel finish. Pretty good.
