Trolleo (1391) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 1, 2016
Hazy to cloudy brown color, small off-white to tan head. Little bit nutty. Again, the same bio/organic note throughout aroma and taste. Thin to medium body with watery finish. Soft to flat carbonation. Not bad, but there is something missing. //bottle bought at Graz craft beer festival

massingasetta (669) - München, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2015
Oh my.. what is this? A beer made with all types of herbs that is organic and malty. Slightly like a caramel stout, with a herbal rainbow. Like a coffee with a shot of something in it.

Thanks Mladen! Shared with the others. Amber-brown body. Perfumey, nicely grainy dry malty aroma, fresh. Mild grainy and dusty sweetish taste, a touch acidic, a hint of spent yeast. Eh, just OK.

Horny Betty war der Hammer, Black Betty ist enttäuschend! Schmeckt fast wie sehr verdünntes Stout. Wenig vielschichtig, eigentlich eher langweilig. Hat im Glas eine schöne Farbe, bräunlich mit Off-White Krone. Die Flasche ist auch toll gemacht. Leider ist weder das Aroma noch der Geschmack es wert, groß darauf einzugehen! Schade... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color with an off-white head that disappears very quickly. Aroma is a little bit hoppy and alcoholic. Flavor is roasted malt and hoppy. Low carboantion and medium to full body with a bitter finish.
