Eructoblaster (3747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap et the brewpub. Pours a black body with a good off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar hints. Taste is well balanced. It carries brown sugar and some roasty notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. Good effort.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Draught at Pivnica Medvedgrad. In my opinion the best of their beers. Surprisingly hoppy aroma with a top layer of grassy hops, under which there are the malty notes - bread, roast and caramel. The dominating aroma elements were the hops and dried plums, especially in the flavour. Light sweet, light bitter. Less dry and more hoppy than a regular schwarzbier. Very tasty!

heavy (2661) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 30, 2007
27/10 0.3 l draught. Had dark brown body with medium creamy, slowly diminishing brown head. Roasted malts in aroma, quite strong sourness. Maybe also from some kind of hops... Flavor is sour, a bit bitter, coffee. Finish long and pretty sour. Lacked sweetness expected for the style, but still quite good. I will try it again next time in Zagreb if this was in bad condition.

MarkoNm (2255) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 7, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown color, red undertone, topped with a decent and solidly lasting tan colored head. Malty aroma, a bit roasty with some mild chocolate notes. Taste starts with some sweetness, quite watery with some grassy notes later on. Mild bitterness and slight herbal presence in the finish. Drinkable, although a bit more taste would be needed - a bit too watery.

jerohen (2163) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2007
On draft at Zagreb. Black, small brown head. Malty nose, some liquorice. Predominantly bitter flavour, not a lot of complexity. Lasting bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel.
