Pours dark. Little head. Smells malty and taste is better than I expected. Syrupy sweetness on the taste. Pretty good actually.

darbeer75 (517) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Aroma: lots of malt but seems overly sweet/burnt caramel-y; Appearance: dark ruby red with off white head that dissipates slowly; some lacing; Taste: follows nose; too malty and sweet with unpleasant roastiness; Palate; medium-heavy body with long, roasty finish; Overall: not good; would not buy again.

invinoveritas (116) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Pint at bar. Not much aroma but dark and luxurious appearance, which carries through into a silky mouthfeel. Creamy and refreshing and well balanced, with neither the burnt toffee, the sourness nor the sweetness dominating. Solid example of the style.

CacheManyHose (587) - HONG KONG - APR 16, 2016
Had at Orange Peel during drumming gig. Smells of heavy burnt malt, plum and preserved fruit, slightly herbal and some biscotti and booze. Taste is burnt malt, more bitter than the nose. Body is bitter, watery, lightly smoky and sour. A bit acidic but not bad considering.

HKdIPA (675) - HONG KONG - APR 16, 2016
Tap at Orange Peel for Steph's drumming. Black pour with big foamy tan head. Aroma is malty dark lager. Taste too - surprisingly rich and malty. Sort of metallic bitter lager taste underneath but not too much. Smooth palate but not heavy. Nice - way more interesting than regular San Miguel.

Eructoblaster (3842) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a dark brown body with an average beige foamy head. Malty aroma with liquorice and molasses hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste carries woody, roasted cereals, and liquorice notes. Ends with a short roasty finish. Drinkable.

Very nice foam, roasty and toasted. I like the color. Very dark brown black, with a coffee like foam. Taste is wonderful, bitter more than sweet. Full bodied and creamy. It is probably one of the best tasting dark beer I ever tried.
