2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown coloured body with a soapy tan head. Aroma of malt, slight grapes, raisins and some metal. Medium to Light-bodied; Sweet flavour with some malt present, some caramel and a bit of some raisin sweetness. Very light and subdued aftertaste-almost nothing there! Overall, a sub-par beer and one that really should be overlooked! I bought this twelve ounce bottle (Best by 01.2005) at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 07.December.2003.

Black beer with a disapperaing head. Nothing overly spectacular here. Abit cordially and sweet for my tastes. Could be better integrated. Think Tooheys Old might even be better.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle. Skunky aroma. Dark beer. Clear brown color. No foam and low carbonation. This is a very different mixture than what I’m used to. Skunky taste/dark beer. I thought it was interesting but not really for me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown, clear, medium off-white head. Bland caramel, hint of apple fruit. Too sweet, thin and fizzy.

Bottle, 50cl. Dark red color, good head. Strong aroma of malt, nicely roasted. Flavor was the same at the beginning, but later some odd taste of chalk - almost paraffin-like - became too annoying. The taste was not quite what I’ve expected from the great looks of this beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a slight metallic aroma. Pours very brown with a minimal white head. Taste a bit like a dunkelweis without the spice and herb flavors. A short roasted malt flavor in the aftertaste lingering slightly dry on the tongue. Overall not a beer I would grab again, but is light enough in flavor to introduce someone to a darker beer without scaring them away.

Brown colour, white foam which dissolves quickly. Mild smell. Strong coffee taste. Tastes like stripped down Guinness.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
brown body, very nice stable head, regular and bubbly, flavour is very weak, not distinctive, medium carbotantion, flavour is mild. alkmost no taste, the problem is that I can not feel the taste, you don’t rate what you don’;t feel,
poor brew, weak taste, not much

Mörk lager med tydlig kaffedoft. Inte min typ av mörk lager. Smakar kanske godare till kötträtter.

Draft at Libreria bar in Tirana
Dark brown scattered lace
Smells good and bready. The palate is sugary and the malts are underdeveloped and it soon becomes too sweet and cloying; the body can’t keep up with the sugars.
