Lilja (1944) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Ett välbalanserat mörkt lageröl utan påträngande sötma. Smak och doft av nötter , mörk choklad med aning av röda bär och rostade toner.

angelkostvo (785) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 1, 2012
Color is black with a bit brown to it with a nice cinnamon like head that stays. Aroma is interesting it/s chocolate, coffee, toffee, lactose.. Taste is as great as the aroma it has everything that you expect from the aroma and a really smooth palate, something like sweet espresso maybe. This is probably the best black lager I had from a Czech brewery.

Bottle. Pours dark brown to black color with nice lasting white to brown head. Aroma is roast, coffee, hops, hint of chocolate. Flavor is coffee, cocoa powder. Bitterness seems to be coming more from coffee tones than from hops. Nice long roast aftertaste. Well balanced.

thepeter (320) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2012
A - Almost black with a slight red tint on the bottom of the glass. The head is perfect tan and lasts well into the beer and leaves a decent lacing. S - Burnt/roasted malts, dry fruits, chocolate, a whiff of an open field. T - toasty, malty, cocoa powder, bit of coffee, and a little sweetness. M&D - great carbonation, easy to drink, very quaffable (not sure if that’s a word but you know what I mean). Nice body, could drink it all night.
