3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nostalgic beer for me as one of the only dark beers available in the late 90s that wasn't stout - a good point of difference to all the tasteless lagers. Deep brown with a foamy mocha head. Roasted malt, coffee and milk chocolate on the nose. Sweet flavours of roasted malts, nuts,milk chocolate. A very mild bitterness to clean the beer up and make it very drinkable.

Pours black with a pillowy tan head. Aroma of toasty grain. Taste is clean and balanced, with a decent amount of both dark malt, clean light malt, and Czech hops.

Draught, Dublin. Pours dark ochre, with beige and compact head, that eventually dissipates to quarter-finger deep. Nutty aroma of sweet malts, and something similar on the palate but with caramel notes. Put me in mind of Smithwicks, the Irish ale.

Nice malty taste with hints of licorice, body is quite thin but it doesn’t matter. Mouthfeel is a bit carbonated and bitter, aftertaste is slightly sour.

Aroma has dark bread and malts. Nice dark head, and color is dark brown. Smooth and fulfilling flavor, dark malts bring some sweetness. It’s like bread that is transformed into beer, brilliant!

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 Very dark brown color, beige head; aroma of sweet caramel; mouthfeel is on the thin side with some carbonation desperately trying to hold it up; very sweet flavor of syrupy caramel with hints of maltiness, but apparently the sweetness is coming from somewhere else. Use of sweetener in a beer may sound scary, but if you´re in for the bottled candy you could choose a lot worse.
