Werckmeister (37) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 21, 2014
cream coloured foam, dark brown color, clear, carbonation is apparent form the look. on the nose: malty, caramel and cacao. tense structure, good bitterness (not too much not too little), dry. the dark malts are always apparent. the carbonation gives it a fine bubbly texture on the tongue.

0,5 bottle. Black coloured beer with very strong coffee and roasted bread aftertaste, medium body. Definitely deserves attention.

Peter_L (836) - SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2014
Flaska av en kompis, tack där Johan! Brunsvart vätska med fingertjockt skum. Doftar malt, karamell och mörk kaka. Smak av lite choklad, kaka och lite bränt rostat kaffe. Inte lika fyllig som sina mörka tjeckiska bröder. Denna är lite torrare. Faktiskt lite tunn munkänsla också. Allt som allt dock en ok mörking.

Greibe (6) - - NOV 5, 2014 does not count
Canned. Very dark brown. Beige head with minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted dark malts, slightly sweet. Taste also roasted with some coffee and caramel. A bit too carbonated for my taste. OK for a commercial beer.
