Theydon_Bois (16482) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Tap at PJís, Carlingford, 26/01/13. Light black with a good sized light tan/off white head that retains very well. Excellent lacing ensues thereafter. Nose is very muted - not a lot to note! Malt, grain, barley, light metallic notes. Taste comprises light roast malt, mineral tones, barley, grain. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. A far blander version of the not exceptionally flavoursome original!

goozen (3756) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2012
Can 0,44ltr: Opaque black likes its big brother or big sister, only weaker in taste but there are some equations. Like this one, but the original is still better.

yngwie (16424) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2012
Can. A big, light beige head forms over a reddish dark, dark brown body. Soon diminishing into a thin, creamy layer. Rather weak on the nose, roasted mostly, some coffee and dried fruits in the back. Roasted flavor, a rye bread touch and some dried fruits. Very watery on the palate, creamy and soft. Roasted, bitter finish. A decent one considering the strength, but way, way too watery. 120819

saxo (16377) - HÝjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2012
Can @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is close to black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, water, notes of licorice and notes of caramel. Nice aroma but taste is lacking.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2012 Canned 26/04/12. A dark mahogany coloured beer with a widgeted thick creamy off-white head. A dry roasty aroma like its big brother. A similar taste too; maybe a bit more watery. Itís not obviously only 2.8% and is actually quite pleasant all things considered. Score 2.9
Subsequent ratings scored 2.7 and 2.9. Average becomes 2.8
