Benzai (12187) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2012
50cl bottle @ home, shared with Countbeer, Fonefan and Ove. Brown-red color with a nice deep dark red glow coming through, decent sized off-white to beige head. Smell malts, a little sweet and a slight weird scent. Tastes nicely balanced, malts, lightly sweetish, hints of caramel. Quite decent. Lightly sticky texture. Low carbo, low body.

Grima (2229) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Tiefes dunkelbraun, fast schon schwarz, glänzt es im Glas. Es schäumt sehr gut auf und der cremefarbene, feinporige Schaum steht gut und lange im Glas. Beim Geruchstest kommen ausschließlich Süßmalzaromen und leichte Röst-Aromen durch. Startet mit einer guten Mischung aus röstigem und süßlichem Aroma, im Nachgeschmack wird’s leicht bitter und kaffeartig.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Single bottle purchased from an Edeka Grocery Store in Winterberg, Germany on 01/09/2011. Colour: Medium dark brown, high brown head that quickly faded. Nose: Chocolate mousse malt, hazelnuts and pecans, shades of rainforest coffee. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Shades of roated nuts, a smattering of egg, slight metallic tingle, finish become burnt embers. Better aroma than taste.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 4, 2011
Die Schaumkrone hält gut und die Farbe ist dunkelbraun mit rotstich. Geruch röstmalzig. Geschmacklich ein sehr Intensives Dunkles, stark röstmalzig und auch sonst dunkelmalzaromatisch, der Hopfen kommt nur gering durch. Fazit: Sehr lecker, füllig und süffig. Vielleicht nicht sehr Speziell aber ein gutes Dunkles

Thanks a lot MoritzF! Nice dark brown color with a huge frothy tan head. Caramel and toasted malt nose. Same applies to the taste - the toasted malt kicks in first but it has a weak finish. Light body.
