1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottled 500ml. -Bought at Euro Spin, Maribor. Dark brown coloured, medium sized off-white head, light roasty nose. The taste is huge letdown; sweet malty, strong metallic and faint fruity with unpleasant rusty notes. Hardly drinkable. This Devil is one of the worst dark beers I’ve ever tried if not the worst.

Kiefer Bräu Black Devil Birra Scura actually. The bottle says it’s brewed at Pedavena, so why is it here? I have to look into this. Brought by ogivlado from Slovenia and shared with me (thanks!)
Poured a murky black (dark brown). Big-medium off white thick head going away at a medium pace. Light roasty malty nose, maybe some hop. Distinctly metallic taste, roasty and rusty. Light. Oooooh I get iiiit. Devil. Metal. Yeah. This is as much black metal as umm Mayhem or something. Aaaanywayy... some nut (maybe pistacchio) in the taste and very light roasty bitterness int he aftertaste. There’s something underneath all that metal but I guess this is too grim and frostbitten for it to show.

0.5 L bottle kindly shared by KnutAlbert. A tanned cream head over a near black, ruby shaded body. Sweet licorice, milk-chocolate and dark fruits on the nose. Dryish cocoa flavor. Some fruitiness and a note of toasted dark malts. Surprisingly light-bodied. Feels a bit diluted in the mouth. Otherwise a fairly decent Dunkel, with good drinkability.

Brown medium coarseish head. Dark red barely translucent body. Light plummy licorice aroma. Dry roasty plummy papery taste with chocolatey notes. Mid-bodied. Dry papery roasty licorice aftertaste with grassy notes. Quite nice, but could use more body. Ɛ.5l bottle from KnutAlbert. Listed as "Kiefer Black Devil" in my notebook.)

Bottle from a discount shop in Sardinia.
Caramael aroma. Almost black with a red tinge. Thin and watery, rather weet. Gets better as it wars up, revealing coffee and liquorice.
