DSG (5674) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Dark brown with a bit of beige foam. Aroma of malt, caramel, light roastiness, a bit of oxidation and vegetal notes. Sweetish flavor, slightly roasty, with a bit of caramel, toasted bread and a drier and slightly bitter finish. Rather light-bodied.

Capa (1970) - Manama, BAHRAIN - FEB 12, 2014
Black body with a tall, rocky tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, a bit of sweet malts. Thin body. Flavor is light and unpleasant. Light sweetness and dry toasted malt. A bit of bitter roasted malts on the back end. This is a poor attempt at a schwarbier.

worldbeertaste (1610) - AUSTRIA - JAN 22, 2014
Black with a red tint and a thin, white, frothy, disappearing head. Smells of dark dirty barley, feat, caramel extract, and dark malt. Medium thin body. Tastes of flat coke, with barley, caramel, malt extract and dirt. Very processed and blah. Itís not good

cfrancis (2278) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours black with a small white head. Aroma is light toasted malts. Taste is really lacking. Expecting some big roasted flavours, finding none.

HuskerTan (464) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. A- Metal, roasty, coffee. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Licorice, roasted cereal, spiced. P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish. O- Tastes like a Guinness Draught but with an obvious lager feel. Definitely does not look as great as a Guinness but itís not a bad beer.

ryanscourt (713) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Nice toasty aroma. Was hoping more from the body though. Pretty weak with mostly metallic notes. Lager body is fine but thereís just not much flavor

Brandon1989 (239) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2014
pours a dark black with a small head. the aroma roasted malt, brown sugar. the taste is very similar. not a terrible beer by any means but not the best.

Hiero (127) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Tastes like Coke with a slight coffee aftertaste. Iím not sure if I drank a beer or a soda. If an alcoholic Coca-Cola was the goal, then they did a great job.
