madmitch76 (22493) - , 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!

Koelschtrinker (17731) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Säuerlich-herber Antrunk, bei dem man kaum merkt, dass es ein Dunkles ist. Später wenig (!) malzig, süffig, höchstens malzig angehaucht. Lasches Dunkles ohne Hintergrund. Danke an kappldav123. 8/7/7/7/8/7

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
On tap at Oaka. Dark brown Cola type colour. Thin beige head. Oxidised aroma. Poor. In fact undrinkable. Oxidised thin chocolate. Rubbish.
