Dark brown, slightly fizzy but no real head. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Fizzy in the mouth. The chocolate and sweetness carry over into the taste. Slightly watery and sweet. Slight blue cheese at the start of each mouthful . Nice burnt element, but could have been a lot better if brewed to a less kvassy strength. (5-3-7-2-10=2.7)
Dark red, small head. Dry husky grainy aroma. Very dry palate. Simple dark lager - drinkable, but too drying to be a thirst quencher. Mostly malt, bugger all hops.

Dark Brown colour with middling malty head, had from pressure tap in Trieste, Italy. Sweet malt flavours dominate although thinner than I expected. Highly carbonated, so much so that i was difficult to drink. Some bitterness but mostly balnd.
