1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma is rather like old pennies and rotting vegetable matter with a good splash of diacetyl. Flavor is Blauugh! with a capital B! Heavy, fairly dry caramel flavor. This is not good.

12 ounce bottle from somewhere in Richmond, VA. A fairly vigorous pour produces a bronze color with a very large head, average head retention and poor lacing. The aroma features dark fruits and
nutty notes. Very sweet taste with nutty notes, grain and dark fruits. Bitter finish. Medium bodied.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mazza resturant. Pours a awesome ruby hue with a small white head. The aroma is very nice; rich malts and berries. The taste is very nice; toasted malts, a really rich malt profile, like a german doppel. Also, a really nice fruity aspect, berries mostly. A nice surpirse.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours to a hazy dark garnet body with a tall, airy, creamy, lively beige head. Beautiful lacing. The aroma is fruity dusty yeasts and some subtle malt. The flavor is a buttery mess of darker malts, yeasts, and dusty hops. The palate has a lot of butter and carbonation. Yeasts leave a tang in the mouth.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Johns Marketplace in Portland, OR--Poured a brown-chestnut-copper body with a small whitish head. Sweet, malty, sticky hops nose. Some coffee and chocolate notes. On the verge of being an amazing beer, but came up just a tad short.

Had this at a Middle eastern eatery last night and am only rating this a s to warn others that might be tempted to try this just to add another country to there list.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy copper with a tall soft light tan head that leaves thick lacing. Very metallic flavor, sharp finish that sadly ruins this beer. Roasty earthy caramel and bread at the start. Not heavy, but slightly syrupy finish. The metallic flavor just makes this beer taste stale.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear brown with no head.Nothing real exciting here.caramel and coffee on the nose.The flavor was dissapointing.Cold soured coffee with the caramel trying to escape.This reminded me of a great beer that was hidden behind a nasty beer.You can almost tatse the greatness like a big tease but as it just hits your lips its gone and the nasty beer comes back.This ends bad also.Sour and bitter like 5 day old stale coffee.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
First time trying this. I bought it at Good Food Market on Washington Blvd in Pasadena - great little Middle Eastern market. Didn’t care for the aroma, but nice dark butterscotch color. Fairly well lasting head - not much lacing though. Beer coated mouth; malty, slightly sweet and syrupy.
