Bottle 330ml. Pours dark brown with red reflects. Low beige head, some lacing. Aroma is of caramel, toffee, malt. Taste is of roasted malt, sligth caramel. Palate: light body. Overall: A bit bland. Interesting roasted malt, but not much else. Easily drinkable.

On tap at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Light brown pour, dark, but not totally opaque. Kinda one-dimensional. Sweet, light chocolate but nothing really crazy. I like the style but this one didn’t really do it for me.

lello4ever (103) - ITALY - FEB 8, 2015
Una schwarz da tavola che non lascia un particolare ricordo di sé. Nera e dall’ampio cappello di schiuma beige di buona persistenza, al naso è molto piatta, si avverte solo un leggero sentore di legno. Più viva una volta assaggiata, con le tipiche note di legno, malto tostato, caffè, il tutto in un discreto equilibrio dolce ma secco. Il corpo è molto leggero così come la carbonazione. Si fa bere ma niente di più.

Spośród kiepskich niemieckich piw, jakie niefortunnie zgromadziłem, to, choć przeciętne, zasługuje na wyróżnienie. Niemal czarne, nieprzejrzyste, z całkiem pokaźną, beżową pianą. Aromat i smak gwoździ pojawił się w sporej dawce, ale na szczęście nie była to jedyna wyczuwalna nuta. Nieco paloności i czekolady, bardzo delikatna goryczka.

rayaron (461) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle sample. Almost opaque dark amber with small off-white head. Light aroma of dark fruits and prune, a bit spicy. Sweetish aroma, floral with notes of corn sugar, slightly spicy and salty, a bit sour finish. Moderate carbonation, light-bodied.

Color: jet black. Nose is coffee and boozy sourness like cheap red wine. Body is thin, very thin. Flavor has a roasted quality and more of that wine-like tang. Yech. This is not good.

Teran (96) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 27, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Dark red, I saw even hint of blue color. Hardly transparent, but clear. Roasted malt, molasses, some smoky forest, animalistic touch of something wild. Not so sweet, watery texture. Low in alcohol, usually I do not drink beers under 5%. But this one is easy to drink.
