500 ml bottle, a gift from my son Steinar (bought in Poland). Brewed by Herrnbräu in Ingolstadt, Germany. ABV is 5.2%. Extract 12,5%. Pasteurized. Beautiful deep copper to chestnut colour, big to moderate cream-coloured head. Very malty aroma, notes of caramel, rye bread and bakery. Fizzy mouthfeel. The flavour is also malty and sweet with notes of caramel and rye bread, also a slight roastiness. The hops in the finish are very moderate, but sufficient (together with the roastiness) to balance the sweetness and make the beer very drinkable.

SilkTork (5346) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2007
500ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A smooth, dark malty beer with a lot of soft milk chocolate flavours finished with a tang of metal. Polish dark lagers are quite pleasant. Quite creamy and milky. British little old ladies would love this stuff. Great fun.

Surprisingly good. After a vacation to the Czech Republic I think I understand this style. This beer nearly hits the mark. Where it is off is that it is slightly too sweet, but only a little and not overwhelming like some dunkels. The beer is black, very thick and rocky head. Aroma of roasted malt, and dry, roasty flavor with sugar. Heavier than many of the style. Purchased at Surdyk’s; Minneapolis.

500 ml bottle purchased sometime this past fall somewhere in the midwest (??), enjoyed from a Trout Brook mug at cellar temperature. Dark, clear purplish-black body with a small to moderate lasting creamy-bubbly light brown head, lovely thick lacing....wow, beautiful nutty-chocolatey, roasty aroma, a bit of oatmeal, vanilla and caramel in there too, so decadent and inviting and quite surprisingly very very fresh....I’m a bit worried that the flavor won’t hold up to the delicious nose, but I have little to worry about, it’s nearly as rich and delightful as I’d hoped for, sweet and chocolaty-caky at the front, drying out somewhat by the finish, with very light mineralic/salty qualities and some light vanilla bean touches....I really didn’t find this thin at all, as some have suggested, and the balance of roast and sweetness is well-night perfect....carbonation is just a bit low, leading to a bit of syrupyness. An astonishing find -- one of the most underrated beers on this site, as far as I’m concerned. Wish I had easy access to more....

Quite good but tastless after a while, the foam is not like in the label. Very dark indeed, but nothing special.

Black colored, slight red hints. Little beige head. Nicely roasted coffee aroma with caramelly sweetness, chocolate and licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor is also rich with good touch of roastiness, sweetness, licorice, chocolate and coffee. Aftertaste lasts with caramel and drying hops.
