flemmingwillum (1145) - Nysted, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 Bottle brought home from Prague, bought in Albert Supermarket:

Fine, clear mahogany-brown colour. High, airy, foam that dissapears too quickly. The aroma is marked by obvious chocolate, caramel, some liquorice and malts. The aroma leaves no traces of the hops, but is very appealing. The flavor is quite complex with a lot of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Some caramel appears too, and even notes of liquorice are hiding in there. The liquorice are getting more obvious towards the finish, when the beer gets more sourish and dry too. The finish is quite bitter, and fits the beer. This might sound exciting, but somehow the taste in itself still manage to give a bit of a boring impression. It might be because of the dryishness. This beer is only a little creamy, and it would suit it being more. It could be sweeter too, together with less dry. All in all this is a quite nice dunkel, though. All in all: 3.4.

15.05.2010: Re-rating as my brother brought by a can. Appearance is a little better this time - head lasts better, but still not long enough. Aroma is not as appealing as earlier, less complex. Else, this beer seems exactly the same as before.

deyholla (9638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Bottle. Poured brown with a ivory head that laced a bit. Aroma was sweet with notes of caramel malts. Flavor was more grainy, but the caramel malts were still present. The body was a bit light.

DeanF (2202) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
Pours with almost no head, and what does exist disappears very quickly. Smells like coffee and water, maybe some grape juice in there too. Taste is coffee, coffee, coffee - very surprising for this brew, but it lacks complexity and feels a little bit fake. On the other hand, there are worse flavours to imitate and it’s an okay "fake" dark beer. Worth trying if you can get it for free.

blackbock (117) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2009
(bottle) Poured perfectly, a deep ruby-brown colour with ample head. For a beer of only 3.8% alc/vol this one had plenty of body. There was a definite roastiness present, and the hopping was spot on. This is one I could come back to many times if available.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - OCT 23, 2009
on tap - Prague. My beer of preference during my stay in Prague. Dark ruby color, nice head. Sweet caramel taste, light body, refreshing. I found this to be an excellent session beer given the alcohol content and light - medium body.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2009
Canned. Dark ruby brown, medium-sized off-white head. Toasted rye bread aroma, little salmiak. Flavor has slight licorice, sweet roasty rye bread, molasses, slight coal and metal in the finish. Light to medium bodied, a tad coarse carbonation, some sugariness on the palate. I hate the saccharine, but have to admit that this is still pretty alright flavourwise.
