The dark colour and intense taste is due to a unique process of malt fire-burning. A process that requires craftsmanship and precision from the brewer. As a result a beer has been created with a slightly sweet taste at first sip and a nice bitter follow through.

VertBaconStrips (2226) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
Dark brown brew that produced a small ammount of tan head that faded quickly. Nice aroma albiet to mild. Lightly toasted dark malts, possible smoke (can’t convince myself it’s there), maybe I’m finding the hidden smell of grape gum. This would taste much better if not hampered by excessive bitterness for the style. Still, highly drinkable. Fairly sweet and a shit load of toasted malts (mild overall). i may be confusing what I think is notable alcohol during every sip with the hops...go figure. Weak nuttiness? Just over medium bodied. The carbonation that at first sip gave me the ’pop’ impression has rounded out nicely now and is quite good and soft. Good malt middle and finish that takes a bit of a hit with the obvious excessive bitterness. I could drink this all night despite the impression that I didn’t like it. If you really want to enjoy this let it warm considerably...more than usual. Thanks for the beer, bro.

Bottle. Pours dark clear brown with decent beige head. Sweet, slightly toasty malt head. Similar taste, with some lactic notes. Not bad, but not really my thing.

Cirrhosis (1281) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
"Beer appears to be dark brown and can only be seen through when held up the light, I did a crappy pour and ended up with a four inch high cap that won’t go away and dam is it noisy I can hear it from five feet away. Wow what a freaking awesome aroma I’m completely surprised, coffee and very rich smooth malts a touch of chocolate, the aroma is mild making me smell it harder, this is just pure roasted malt goodness. This brew is tasty very tasty , rich and smooth roasted malts the flavor is sweet but is balanced perfectly with a touch of bitter coffee. So complex with every sip I taste something new, milk chocolate, berries, some metallic qualities, slight dirt. Simply shocked about how good this brew was, dammit to bad it’s a thirteen hour drive away from where I picked this up. This is just so complex, smooth and delicious my marks for this seem so over the top but they are what they are its plain fawking awesome. This is the best product to come out of Poland since the screen door on the submarine."

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUN 6, 2009
500ml bottle served in a Bell’s dimpled mug. Clear ruby/brown pour with a two-finger thick head of rocky tan foam. Decent retention and lacing. The aroma included sweet caramel, dark fruits, and toasted bread. The flavor had sweet malts, toasted caramel, and a hint of campfire. Malty, but thin and somewhat metallic. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. A slight step up from Warsteiner’s dunkel, but it still tastes very industrial.

Clear brown with no head. Aroma is light caramel and mellow spice. Taste is sweet, and a little rice. Smooth, not bad but not great.

PilsnerPeter (3032) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle: Underrated brew. Pours a brown with a ruby hue and a tan film of head. Sweet earthy aroma- very light peat character with dark caramel and chocolaty sweet notes- clean. Light silky body- nice malt depth- dark caramelized notes and light toasted toffee note mesh with a smoky/peat character. Sweet, but its soft and balanced by the mild smokiness. Remains refreshing despite its rich maltiness. Nice!

bottle poured a brown color with a tan colored head. aroma has malt, faint roast, sweetness, and some vegetable. flavor has some mild roasted malt, hefty corn sweetness, light chocolate, and a touch of bitterness. really on the bland side and not too exciting for me.

Drake (11156) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2009
16.9 ounce bottle from Greenlife Grocery in Asheville, NC. Pours a clear ruby tinted cola brown with a large creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, smoke, chocolate. Taste is sweet malts, almost cloying but not quite, very light roast and a finish of dark fruits. Thin-medium bodied.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAR 9, 2009
500ml bottle. Dark brown, nearly black with ruby highlights and a smallish head. Aroma is strong munich malt, very bready and a touch roasty, with some dark fruits lurking in the background. Not the rauchbier I figured I was getting, c’mon the label is on fire, what the hell? Sweet and malty with lots of dark fruits (figs, prunes, dates) and a touch of roast at the finish. This seems like a pretty dark dunkel, but I know they can get that way. All and all an easy drinking beer that shows a lot of nice malt character and is fairly quaffable.
