Arrachtas (1) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014 does not count
A malty, bready beer with a distinct Eastern European dark rye note, fresh and warming. Hops in the background, but relatively subdued. In the glass, the beer is a dark mahogany, like a well-aged whisky. Overall, this is a well-balanced, quaffable beer. The taste does a good job of following the aroma; being medium-bodied and sweet, but well-tempered by a hops presence that prevents it from becoming cloying or syrupy. Overall, I’d call it a fairly high-quality dark lager, a style that is not all that common any more these days. It is well-made, and inexpensive.

exeter (283) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Strong roasted malt flavours with long-lasting and slightly dry hop after taste. Decent body, if a bit light. A relatively flavourful and refreshing interpretation of the style.

Drank out of hefeweizen a glass Aroma: molasses, wood Appearance: perfect amount of head but doesn’t linger for long, dark reddish brown colour Taste: sweet molasses, definitely not a session beer but one tasted really nice. A lot nicer than I expected Palate: kind of thin but just the right amount of carbonation Overall: this beer surprised me, dark lager doesn’t describe it well

BeerBoom (105) - POLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle. Medium, beige head. Aroma at the beginning is mostly metalic, but later dark malts and some plums. Low carbonation. In taste sweet, friuty but too much watery.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottled (backlog, thanks Kim N!). Dark amber to copper colour with a small off-white fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malts, mild chocolate and a bunch of ripe sweet fruitiness and some mild toast. Flavour is toasted malts, some ripe sweet fruitiness along with some chocolate and mild caramelly and syrupy notes. Bodied, and not overly sweet.
