armando629 (2408) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2012
On tap at Macska Caf, Budapest.
Deep ruby-brown beer with a creamy tan head. Aroma of some caramel, roasted malt, light espresso, nugat. Light texture with a mdium sweetness, caramel and some coffee. Easy one.

sulawang (621) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2012
pours supa-black like a Guinness (ABV close to Guiness 4.1%), small head, minimal runny lacing, small ringed CO2 retention. A bit of roasted malts on the nose, some caramel. Noticeably thin-bodied going down, tingly invasive CO2 in the mids that is off-putting, lightly sweetened breads/barley in at the top of the mouth, very subtle roast and 2/10 bitterness at the finish. Low depth, low-medium complexity, thin-bodied. I dislike the watery mouthfeel and lack of carry at the end. Although dark, it is deceptively weak.

madmitch76 (15095) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2011
15th December 2011<br.Bloody great Stein of the stuff in the Bavarian Beerhouse, Crutched Friars. Dark red brown beer, small white head. Mildly crisp and mildly dry. A light touch of dark malt with traces of licorice and toffee. Mild fruity hop and mild minerals. Altogether quite a mild dark lager. Semi dry finish. Was decent enough to distract me from the godawful food and ooompah racket! For awhile at least!

pivnizub (8864) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle (kindly delivered by Quack-Duck!): Deep, deep amber coloured, maybe a bit hazy, big tanned head that slowly collapses, light dryish caramelly nose, some fruits underneath; very light dry bitter flavour, very light bodied as well; thin fruity-ashy finish. A german beer, that is n o t available in Germany. Who knows why......
