Produced from special dark malts, which is why even its foam is dark.

Dark. Not amazing, but pretty solid. You could definitely do a lot worse when beer touring the Czech Republic and it helps break the monotony of the numerous Pilsners.

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2009
Biggish yellowish beige head. Dark red translucent body. Burnt earthy milky licorice aroma with toffee and straw notes, quite harmonic. Dry-sweetish roasty earthy metallic licorice taste with chocolatey notes. Mid-bodied. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Dry roasty licorice and straw aftertaste. Quite nice, but a tad too watery. Would be great unfiltered. (0.5l bottle, Meny, Oslo.)

Kestral (506) - Ĺrnes, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2009
Pours dark reddish brown with a few mm’s of light brown head. Aroma is earthy, roasted notes, caramel, nuts. Flavours are more caramel, subtly roasted notes and chocolate, light grassy hops in the finish. Not much complexity, but a nice beer. Loads of flavour for the low abv, and as expected, a bit thin.

500 ml bottle. Red dark copper with black notes. Fine-laced off-white head. Light slightly burnt caramel aroma. Sweet flavours with plums and dark sugars. More of the burnt caramel in the flavour. High carbonation level. Sweet fizzy and light bodied. Not a particularly good beer.

visionthing (4058) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2009
(Bottle (50cl) and from tap) I think I prefer it from tap, but the bottled version was also good. Tried i several times (from tap) before i found out that it was only 3,8%. It was a big suprise, full rich taste with such alcohol content. To bad it’s so expensive in Norway.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 500 ml bottle from Centra Colloseum, Oslo. Fully diminshing tan head. Clear, dark brown colored body. Sweet smelling; dark bread and nutty malts. No hops included. Sugar-sweet and mellow malt flavor. Notes of burnt sugar, sugar-diluted coffee and milk-chocolate. Still no hops, even not for balancing. Body is light plus. Mouthfeel is not that bad, a bit juicy. Brown sugar ending. Not for me, this one.
