500ml on tap at the brewpub in Bamberg. Aroma is light toffee, coffee, and malt. Appearance is dark brown with a small, fast decreasing brown-ish foam (slightly yellow, says Lisa). A bit dry, soft carbonation. Good.

djoeye (2755) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2015
Look; huge beige foamcrown, dark clear copper-red body. Aroma; dark caramels, dark fruits, dusty raisins, dusty chocolate, grassy modest hops behind. Taste; dark fruits, brown caramels, dark malts, prunes, plum peel, grassy hops - leading to an about soft finish with dark malts and some prunes and grass. Normal texture and soft carbonation. Tasty beer, I just thought it would be black. [50cl brown swingtop-bottle 5.2%abv BB11-11-2015 T@Ferie2015]

ThirstyBird (2314) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
On tap at the source, pours a super dark brown with a light tan head. The smell is roasted malt, molasses, dark bread. The taste is molasses, roasted malt, a bit herbal. The body is light plus with average carbonation.

ippopotamo36 (994) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 8, 2015
My last beer of my first trip to Franconia :-( Gravity keg (as the waitress reported) at the source in Bamberg-Germany. Pours chestnut skin color, dark with a frothy and tick off-white cap. Nose: dusty, a bit of these "burnt" malts, some well-hidden initial metallic notes, dry prunes. Mouth: frizzy-medium carbonation, round roasted malts, bread crust. Very balanced mouth and quite fresh. Easy to drink and tasty. Apparently I was lucky...the beers are not always in shape here.

Fra fat på bryggeripuben 10 Okt 14. Ultradypbrun/svart. Filmskum. Aroma av karamell. Smaken er røstet malt & karamell. Svakt røykpreg og passe søt. Et behagelig øl.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Poured vom fass, 500ml, at the brewpub. Fading beige head to a deep black coloured body with rustic highlights. Nicely roasted malts on the nose. Dark caramel taste joined by coffee, roasted. Dark malty finish. Well bodied, but easy to drink. Likable (Bamberg 10.10.2014).

Marheb (3534) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une belle robe sombre laisse passer la lumière. Chocolat noir, caramel et mélasse se mélangent et se laissent compléter par une touche herbacée, poivrée.
