Jimthechap (2009) - Christchurch, - NOV 27, 2012
As dark as it can be with the barest of russet notes in the dimple of the glass, a filthy grey coloured head that seemed to leave lace on the side of the glass. A little chocolately with some dusty grain on the nose and cocoa and charry burnt fruitbread flavour. Some currant flavour as well. A tasty enough brew and suited to a massive stein on a warm evening. Now. I need me a stein.

Dark brown color with reddish hue, average sized creamy brownish head. Aroma of dark fruits, mushrooms, malt. Taste of dark fruits, malt. Watery. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Drinkable but nothing special.

kamillozo (40) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Butelka. Piana beżowa, drobna, redukuje się jednak szybko do obrączki. Barwa ciemnobrązowa, klarowne. Aromat jest słodki, dominuje przypalony karmel, lekkie melanoidy. Tak samo jest w smaku, słodowe i zbyt słodkie, do tego mokry karton. Goryczka niska, nasycenie umiarkowane. Na dłuższą metę męczące.

HammerTroll (750) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 16, 2015
Pitch black, huge tan head. Lots of malt, caramel, but there is also something smelly in it. Can’t figure out. Taste is somewhat empty. Watery texture, soft carbonation. Passable.

soolash (182) - POLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Butelka 0,5 l. Aromat słodowy, lekko karmelowy. Piana beżowa o średnich pęcherzykach, nietrwała, znika do kompletnego zera. Piwo ma bardzo ciemno brunatną barwę, ale do czerni brakuje sporo. W smaku kwaskowość od palonych słodów, lekka karmelowa słodycz i delikatnie zaznaczona goryczka. Wodniste, słabe ciało, średnie nagazowanie. Ogólnie przyjemne do wypicia, gdy się chce bardzo pić.

daniel0017 (404) - Yukon, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Very malty aroma with notes of ripe plums. Opaque, dark body. No head but clearly carbonated. Flavor is well balanced of not a little on the weak side. Whispy molasses finish. Mouthfeel is watery.

macio_men (97) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 21, 2015
Aromat niezbyt intensywny, chmielowy, palony. Ciemna barwa, piana niska, kremowa. Średnie nasycenie. W smaku nijakie, bezsmakowe. Nuty palone mocno w tle. Bardzo, ale to bardzo słabo.

mariuszek (393) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 19, 2015
Average beer. Pours brown color, medium head, some lacing. Faint aroma of caramel and butter but on acceptable level. Watery taste with medium carbonation of soda type. Some malt and caramel, no bitterness.
