2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
courtesy of Vladi and Marco - pours a very dark brown beer with a modest foam left; toasted malts in the nose with hints of cola and hazelnuts; medium-bodied, tart and gently sourish; pretty dry malty finish with notes of black cherries and hazelnuts - not really convincing

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the brewery. Aroma is actual caramel, roasted malt, very tempting. Some raisins, minor milk chocolate. Rather sweet expectations. Head is brown and quickly disappearing, colour is very dark brown, almost black. Taste is medium roasted with light coffee. What annoys me is dirty sourness. The beer had been stored in fridge all the time (and not very long) so I guess this should not be the problem. Something went wrong here anyway. I am a bit generous and hope to rerate in the future,

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served at Purkmistr Restaurant in 2011. Almost black, with reddish mahogany highlights and a dark tan head.
Aroma: mainly toasted malts, with less dark malt aroma than expected, let alone any burnt odors. Hints of chocolate and dried dark fruits, but no coffee. Taste of medium roasted malt with dried fruit and coffee overtones. Medium body with light but adequate carbonation. Smooth.
O - quite enjoyable, if not particularly memorable, bold or distinctive. Easy to drink.

draft at the source. cola, date and plum nose with a small amount of powdered yeast. caramel focused flavor, medium body with pronounced syrupiness. low bitterness, low acid. comes across more of a polotmavy with signs of that black patent malt char/soy character expected in tmavy.
