A rather thin, dark lager-bier. Hints of smoke and coffee, nothing overpowering. Nice enough and worth trying, taste improves as it gets warmer in the glass.

WilleLW (236) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2013
Black colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a slight hint of hops. Taste of roasted malt with notes of chocolate and a finishing coffee bitterness. A slight metallic taste in background with some sourness (in a peculiar way). A light body without beeing watery. A good beer but with a slightly odd after-taste that doesnít fully suit my taste.

WebersTap (2) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2013 does not count
Thin and fizzy but easy to drink. The carmel hits you like a fricking macchiato and renders your taste buds inert for the remaining 300ml. Either that or the surprise just wears off and leaves you wanting a real beer. Iíd pass on this next round.

330ml bottle. Dark brown colour with average, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma, a touch of roast and grass, hints of chocolate. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty, a touch of milk chocolate and cappuccino, minimally roasty and bitter hoppy finish.

Very dark with a small head, quite subtle flavours. A bit Vegemitey. Not too bad.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 13, 2013
355mL at the Quad in Las Vegas. Darker cola red pour. Decent tan head. Okay lace. Nose is not great, some old tootsie roll, something savory like worcheshire sauce and soy. Taste is mild soy, worcheshire, Some lactic acid balance. Not bad, savory and lactic. Drinkable.
