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.

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.

Bottle. A black coloured pour with a small lasting head. I could detect no aroma. A very light malty, bitter finish with hints of honey. Very little taste there really.

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2006
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Sweet, coffeeish Dunkel with ruby-black body and dimpled, off-white head. Maybe a little lacking in roastiness or body, but what the hell? Slips down silkily. Pleasant and uncomplicated. (Re-rate 3/4/07) Quite a teasing snout for a Spaniard. Gently smoky roasted malt with suggestions of dark fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate. A sniff of waxiness. Creamier and fuller bodied than other Iberian efforts in this style. Well retained tan suds. Smoothly roasty with a hint of beechwood smokiness. Quite a charred, lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 30, 2006
(Bottle BB 27/03/07) Roasted malty and very slightly hoppy aroma. Dark red brown colour, bright and light brown, small, almost fully diminishing head with small lacing. Roasted malty, slightly fruity, slightly bitter and slightly sweet flavour with a hint of licorice. Medium-bodied, lively carbonated and slightly chalky palate. 28/05/06

Lowenbrau (2607) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 17, 2006
UPDATED: APR 18, 2012 Some caramel aromas, light body, light brown head. Medium carbonated, some creamy texture. Definitivelly not my beer.
