The full-flavoured beer with a fine and malty taste.

Un plaisir noir avec une marque grillée.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. A deep brown colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt and plum. Flavour has malt, caramel and some fresh hop notes. A little thin on the palate. Moderate carbonation. A little bitterness in the finish. Perfectly drinkable but could be much better.

pkbites (688) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Lovely pour of dark cola and nut brown head. Head dies much too quickly, but what there is is nice. Aroma of caramel, peanuts, bakery, and toffee. But that’s is where the fun ends. The mouth feel is much too light, and the texture is very watery. This doesn’t drink like a dark beer at all. It seems more like a light beer on the palate. Flavor is watered down, aftertaste is nonexistant. Meh.

Hangover (1059) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Black pour with a thin brown head. Aroma is of roasted malts and faint vanilla. Oily, light bodied with medium carbonation. Light chocolate malts on the back end. Creamy mouthfeel. Pleasant German beer. Smooth, nothing off putting.

Roddry (5) - Monterrey, MEXICO - MAR 19, 2014 does not count
Somewhat expected more from this beer the flavor is not that good for the price you normally pay for this beer at Mex.

cwsample (162) - Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap at World of Beer. Smells of licorice and bitter nuts. Tastes vegetal and green. Not a fan.

dbhenry (125) - El Paso, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2014
This is a good dark German beer. It has a nice head and a deep color. The malt taste is deep and somewhat complex, showing care with the caramelizing process. Hops are very light. The malt dominates the hops taste. Very good.

Discore (68) - - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle at room temperature. Black. Roasted chestnut aroma. Medium body, oily with soft to flat carbonation. Drinkable, but far from enjoyable.

EyeAmBaldman (247) - Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown and thick white head. The aroma is like tin. Very much a metal smell. However the taste is pretty good. Tastes strong at first and finishes really smooth. This beer was a lot better than I thought it would be. It’s a little malty in the beginning and finishes so smooth. Decent beer.

Philym (1004) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Appearance: Clear dark brown with ruby highlights, 2 finger thick ivory/tan head. Aroma: Herby, grassy, biscuit/bread, corn and slightly nutty. Taste: Low/medium sweetness, low bitter and sourness. Palate: Thick grainy texture, light body, average/prickly carbonation, dry lingering malty, corn finish. Comments: Ok, tasty enough and glass lace.
