pivo (2646) - GERMANY - APR 30, 2006
Light toasted malt nose, dark brown color, tall fluffy head. Light caramel flavor at first, faint woody end. Thin body. Very light, but certainly good. A swilling dunkel...

Swing-top bottle: Fluffy brownish head, dark amber to reddish coloured; milk-chocolate in the aroma with a tinge of fruitiness and traces of roasted malts; light, sweetish (roasted) malty taste, medium bodied, quite soft; slightly bitter-malty finish with traces of roasted malts again. O.K., but a bit too sweet and plain........

Grima (2201) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, 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.

Bottle: Medium vast light tan creme head on top of a dark amber colored beer. Smell soapy chocolate malts, caramel and barley. Taste light toasted malts, toasted barleys, caramel, some toffee, dark fruits, raisin, hay and some herbs. Light bitter dark grainy dark fruity aftertaste. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, light creamy body and a medium watery texture.
