SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with ruby hues and a tan head. Aroma of extremly subtle brown sugar, toasted malt, faint hints of chocolate. Flavor is much the same with a light sweetness and mild hop spicy flavor. Light-medium body with high carbonation. Overall, is ok.

This is just so moorish and clean tasting, one cannot stop drinking this dark lager. It has a slight sweetness and low carbonation that does not fill you up. Add to this is that after a night of them I always wake up the next day feeing on top of the world.

Toomio (179) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Lakritsia, siirappia. Aika lämmin, mutta hiukan vetinen. Eläinpuistopäivän viimeinen paupakalja.

Malty vinegar aroma. Dark copper color. Taste is sweet caramel malt and sugar followed with a tart vinegar flavor. I think the lines at this bar may be bad.

loco_gallego (24) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Couleur brune-rouge, mousse beige claire modeste disparaissant rapidement mais une fine couche subsiste. Carbonation faible. Arôme faible et peu intéressant. Goűt un poil toasté, peu de force, petite amertune en fin de bouche. Type de bičre intéressante, assez bien balancée.

bergstaden (1185) - Rřros, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2014
Dark amber with a small white head - Malty aroma - Nice malt body with hints of caramle and some fruity notes - Short malt finish - A little bit thin but still ok

hawthorne00 (2375) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a modest beige head. Aroma of chocolate, dark berries, gentle spices. Sweet with toffee, some chocolate, stewed fruit and berries. Gentle bitter finish with some spices. Pretty good - rich for 4.7% and well balanced. Certainly have this one again.

felsenpils (106) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 26, 2014
My friends from ratebeer.com: I read the other reviews with quite some surprise. Obviously, most of you are not familiar with this style. This is a fantastic example of dark Czech beer. Pours deep brown with an off-white head. The aroma is exquisitely Czech, note the slight ester character. The taste is clean with a wonderful rich, dark character. I have been in the Czech Republic many times and this is what their dark lager is all about. For those of you only familiar with the sledgehammer flavor of American micro beers, you will not have the refined beer palate to appreciate this. It is very subtle, elegant and amazing.

adamnase (127) - Kronoby, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle, 0.5 l. Clear dark brown with an creamish, long lasting beige head. . Aroma mostly sugar and caramel and some bread. Sweet finish escorted by shy roasty and hoppy notes. Easy drinkable, average.
