3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A simple dark beer. For a first taste not much surprises. Pleasant aroma and aftertaste, but nothing I’d go for if I have a chance to choose something else.

The dark, relatively mild summer drink. This drink has both spunk, as well as a modest approach.

09-Mar-12 (500-ml bottle)
Pretty generic black beer out of Eastern Europe. It pours nearly black in color with some mahogany highlights at the edges, and the tan head builds to half an inch before settling to a thin ring. The aromas are very sweet, sugary, raisiny with a fair amount of cola. The sugary sweet flavor of cola is quite dominant, along with raisin, molasses, brown sugar, dark bread, and some nuttiness. There is some roastiness and coffee notes, I guess, but the sugar sort of masks everything else. It’s medium in weight, with the residual sugar making it seem heavier, and the carbonation is moderate. Not one of the better examples of this style, but it’s still drinkable.

A dark sweet malty beer. Long dry malty finish. Okay but a bit one dimensional - malt!

Dark brown body, redish head. Aroma of malt extract, yeast and some fruit. Flavour has fruits, yeast and coffee. Quite dull in every way.

Bottle, 4,5%. Almost black body with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma. The taste has lots of roasted malt and some toasted bread. The aftertaste is somewhat sour like a cold black coffee has. Nice.
