Ungstrup (29226) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2012
Bottled. A dark red beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of brett, caramel, berries, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of brett, roasted malt, berries, and bread, leading to a dry and slightly tart finish.

MikeyMalts (64) - Davis, California, USA - JAN 12, 2012
(#45) 22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Appearance: Dark brown/black with a tan head that dissipates. Aroma: Coffee, roasted nuts, earthy, chocolate. Taste: Dry roasted coffee, some chocolate, hazelnuts. Pretty thin and light in flavor. Some carbonation. Palate: Light bodied. Smooth, creamy, a slight bitterness. Overall: It’s good for a light bodied lager. I would have liked more of something there.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On tap @ 2011 Craft Lager Fest. Barely clear, but very dark brown with a thin khaki head. Aroma of black roasted malts, tea leaves, and light pine. Flavor was fairly complex, yet also straight forward. Black malt roastiness, light tea notes, and a very herbal note that I’ll chalk up to hops combined with tea leaves. Crisp and neat.

BarossaLuke (539) - AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2011
Good, dark brown to black colour. Aroma has roast and some smoke character there as well. More smoke and roast on the palate but the mouthfeel lets this beer down for me. I found it to be too thin and somewhat watery. Also I think the smokiness overpowers the other flavours.

Black lager with Yerba mate? Why not? Their ipa was at least interesting, if not all that great - the pour is fairly nice - black with a frothy tan head - the tea is very strong in the aroma, but the black malt and roast is powerful enough to stand toe to toe with it - a slight bite of hops - light bodied and fairly dry - despite the tea, it is fairly true to style - a bit of black malt, light fruitiness, and a touch of herbal hops - the tea is a bit strong, especially on the tail end, so points off for that - the tea adds a tanginess that borders on sour - much like the ipa, interesting, but not something I would revisit.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Poured black with lasting beige head. Light aroma of tea and roast. Malty backbone, surrounded by maté. Maté finish with more barley malt. An interesting beer.
