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

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2005
Bottled. Looks good, this brown beer with a small beige head. Aroma was so much like boiled vegetables that I couldn’t focus on the rest. Flavor is mild, light roasted malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel and low on bitterness in finish. (051104)

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Draught
One of my alltime favourites in the pub. Perfect dark brown colour with good head. Taste is easily drinkable malty and sweet vanishing with the pleasure at the end. (7/5/8/5/18 4.3)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 11/2004)
Dark ruby, espresso head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate aroma. Medium-bodied, sweet and roasted palate with late carbonation. Some hoppy bitterness in oily aftertaste as well as the notes of toffee. (6/5/7/3/15 3.6)
Re-rated, can (BB 01/2006)
Dark ruby, nice tanned head. Caramelly and grassy nose. Easy to drink, sweetish with light hops. (6/4/7/4/14 3.5)

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2000
Very smooth, but very bland. Touch of caramel notes.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle. Bought @ Fřtex, Aabenraa. Golden ruby-red (quite dark) with a medium, slightly fizzy, foamy yellowish head. Aroma is nutty with a little roasted malts. Flavour is sweet, nutty and mixing in a little chocolate and roasted flavours. Nice flavour, but the mouthfeel is perhaps a little limited.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Christian (11028) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Dark brown. Medium sized, short-lived head. Malty nose with chocolate and roast caramel. Feels and tastes weak, which of course isn’t a lie, but it does so in a very pleasant way. I can imagine why Czech dissidents would sit up all night discussing politics with this kind of beer.

Bottle. Dark brown/orange with small tan head. Flavour is malt, sweet, caramel, fruit, chocolate, hops and a little bitter.
