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.

Bottle from Eltham Wines, Eltham. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Butterscotch, raisin and toffee aroma. Flavours of raisin, sweet malt and some licorice notes. Not bad.

MarkoNm (1037) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours a light brown color, topped with a relatively small white head. Mild roasty aroma with some notes of caramel and grains. Taste has some sweetness upfront, roasted with very minimal bitterness and a touch of a soury feel in the end. Drinkable, light.

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 didnt really do it for me.

lello4ever (115) - ITALY - FEB 8, 2015
Una schwarz da tavola che non lascia un particolare ricordo di s. Nera e dallampio cappello di schiuma beige di buona persistenza, al naso molto piatta, si avverte solo un leggero sentore di legno. Pi viva una volta assaggiata, con le tipiche note di legno, malto tostato, caff, il tutto in un discreto equilibrio dolce ma secco. Il corpo molto leggero cos come la carbonazione. Si fa bere ma niente di pi.

Hoppy_Luke (469) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 5, 2015
Spośrd kiepskich niemieckich piw, jakie niefortunnie zgromadziłem, to, choć przeciętne, zasługuje na wyrżnienie. 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 (507) - 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.
