coldbrewky (1570) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Dark brown ruby. Low wafting caramel nose. Thin film of head. Low wavy lacing. Light to medium caramel body. No distinctive finish. A bit chalky. no undulation, one dimensional yet refreshing and fulfilling. A nice easy drinking dark beer. lightly watery finish. Bottle via Cuso in trade.

ElDesmadre (2777) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle. Medium dark brown with a big but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is caramel, sweet dark bread and some liquorice. Taste is quite watery with a weak caramelly body, sweet dark bread, leading to a lightly bitter, lightly astringent finish with an aftertaste of cheap bread, artificial sweetener, liquorice and some weak hops. This one could be quite good without the aspartame.

rosenbergh (9516) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2011
Draught at Café Aura, Banská Bystrica, Slovakia.
Dark reddish brown colour with small light tan head. Weak sweet malty aroma with mild diacetyl. Weak sweetish malty flavour with sugary diacetyl. Soft carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

bierkoning (11681) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle. Molasses and apple syrup in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with caramel. Some caramelly nutty bitter notes in the aftertaste. Thinnish, but with a sticky mouthfeel. Disappointing.

engelschalk (157) - Trnava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 22, 2011
Dark color with beige head, in taste i feel brown sugar, and moderate sweetness I don´t find any bitternes, the aroma was full of notes of caramel and coffee.

Wrong photo. Tap at the Czech Inn in Dublin (but they stopped doing it). Dark color with beige head. Strong taste uncommon, but I really enjoyed it.

Really nice looking bone/ecru head, dense! Lovely dark color. The aroma is fresh and inviting, with cola notes and some dusty cobwebs. Too cold when I opened this, so the aroma is really suffering. The flavor is cola, slight brown sugar, and at least moderate sweetness. I’m looking for even a hint of anything bitter and I am just not finding it. Positively creamy body, seems nitroed! This is a very cola-type dunkel, very east european. Not my fave.

Majdnem fekete színe van, de azért mégiscsak inkább sötétbarnának mondanám, bézs habja enyhén krémes és sokáig kitart. Az illata olyan, mint egy jobbféle mousse, finom karamell, aszalt, szilva, mazsola és keserű csoki. A kávés jegyek az ízében jelennek meg, de legmeghatározóbb a nagyon erős karamellás édesség, amihez jól passzolnak az aszalt gyümölcsök. Inkább édes, közepesen testes és lágyan szénsavas dunkel, szerintem kitűnő (ez a sör Szlovákiában árban 200 Ft környékén mozog, a magyar piac egyszerűen sehol nincs...).

On Tap (Pint): Gives off a mild coffee & barely smell which also contains hints of caramel and possibly some nuts and very light vanilla. A nice cola like black with a tan head that is quite small but has good retention. A lot better to look at than a standard pale lager in my opinion. Similar in taste to the smell & a sort of mild Guinness taste. Coffee & barely being the main flavour with a burnt, light bitter finish. Nice and generally quite smooth. Not too heavy, more light to medium and very drinkable. A very nice beer that is smooth, pleasant & quite flavorful, definitely one I would try again. Reminds me a lot of Guinness, particularly in the taste department & probably the nicest beer I tried whilst in Slovakia. - - - - - /
