Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle, from a Durban area store. Pours thin and fizzy, and whatever head there is, vanishes to leave a flat brew with only a few signs of bubbly life. The aroma is oddly dirty, like--dirt, soil, even mold. It’s not as unpleasant as it sounds, it’s just not smells normally associated with even an unusual beer. The flavors are 180 degrees turnabout with some nice dark caramel and toffee flavors as well as some light chocolate. Thin but drinkable, and leagues ahead of the Laurentina pale.

Bottle shared by Caleb, thanks! Pours dark brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet dark grains and a strong straw note with a touch of hay. Flavor has earth sweet dark grains with a decent amount of straw and a hint of roast.

Bottle @ The Levi Tasting. Thanks, travlr! Deep brown with a small head. Rich malt forward nose. Caramel chocolate cookie. Some plum. Brown sugar. Flavor is a bit knackered. Some signs of oxidzation. Cocoa and caramel sweet body. Light cardboard. Peppery fijish. A bit oily, soft.

Shared by evan, thanks!. Dark brown color. Dry malt and a little sugar, some earth near the finish. I like this. It is close to the real thing, except for the lack of carbonation.

Baclog from travel in Mocambique. Dark brown, almost black. Fine head that quickly disappears to nothing. Sweet aroma, with roaste malt. Taste of dark caramel and roaste malt. Fine aftertaste.

Butelka 0,5l wypita w Mozambiku w 2010r. Kolor ciemny, piana brązowa nietrwała. Aromat, palony słód w tle suszone śliwki, średnio nagazowane. Smak słod, suszone śliwki.Wytrawne raczej. Ogólnie dobre.

Bottle smuggled back for me, thanks for the opportunity Tony! Pours a solid dark brown with a smallish quickly dissipating off white head. Smells heavy on the caramel and burnt sugars. Light fruity aromas and little to no hop. The flavor is rich caramel and earthy burnt sugars with a touch of mineral. Spirited carbonation gives a spritzy bubbly mouthfeel. Well it doesn’t suck, but the caramel seems a bit overbearing and artificial.

best beer I had whilst in southern Africa (before the days when i’d seek out microbrews). quite a dark pour with dark head. bitter, nutty taste with a thin mouth feel. not at all strong and very drinkable in the heat.
