Deep ruby-brown colour, speckled beige head. Sweet malty flavour with reasonable complexity, moca and burnt caramel notes as well. Moderate length on the palate.

Beer5000 (5108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 4, 2007
Bottle. Clear, dark red body with a medium beige head. Aroma is slightly roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is mild, sweet and slightly roasted. Served cold you may say it’s a dark beer for a hot day.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2007
Bottled. Clear, dark reddish-brown with a small beige head. The nose is a bit roasted and breadcrusts-like, with hints of coffee, but it could use a bit fruityness. The flavor is quite weak, with coffee, breadcrusts and cocoa. Medium-bodied with a quite dry finish with coffee. It lacks fruityness, but it is a quite nice spanish beer. (070208)

Bottle. nice black clear colour with an average beige head. Roasty malt and some chocolate in the aroma. Flavour is malty, touch of chocolate and some coffee, hops, bit bitter finish. Pues, entre las buenas de la produción masa en España.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Dark brown, almost black with a really nice, light brown head. The first time I tasted it I liked it, I felt it was quite schwartzbier-like and found licorice and smoke. So I was disappointed to meet it again in Tenerife 2006, because it was way too sweet and malty, actually cloying, and had to be ice-cold to be drunk.

Bottled (thanks mabjork!). Dark brown colour with brown mediumsized head. Aroma is lovely barley malts, slight black cold coffee and caramellish. Flavour is dark roasted malts, some barley and biting hops. A bit acidic dark fruits also present when it gets warmer.

mabjork (677) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Bottled. (Thanks Dorqui) Dark brown in colour. Minor beige head, lacings. The aroma is malty.. syrup in a loaf of bread. The flavour is malty, burnt malt with syrup... It has a dry aftertaste.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2006
Nose is lquoricey and dark with notes of coffee. This follows into the flavour which is roasted and rich but tastes like it’s full of additives. Reasonable but not amazing.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2006
Malty aroma. Brown color, showing red when held up to the light, thin beige head. The flavor was sweet and malty, a little like molasses. The mouth feel was a little bit sticky with too much carbonation. Not great, but not bad.
