UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 (33 cl bottle from Greekbeershop.gr; Bbd: December 15th 2014; L41833 21:06) Pours a clear dark brown with little, tan head that recedes leaving a ring of lace in the glass. Aroma has notes of toasted malt and perhaps some hints of coffee and nuts. Oily to watery texture, medium to light body, soft carbonation and a roasted, bitter finish. Flavour is dark, lightly bitter with notes of roasted malt. Decent and definitely drinkable in a hot climate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a really good beer, and as others have suggested, evidence that there is decent beer in Greece. Pours moderately dark brown with ruby hues. Rich chocolate notes and layers of porter flavor, straight up the middle of the style guide. Nothing awkward or off. Moderately-high carbonation, with a somewhat fluffy mouthfeel. Really good porter. Bottle in Olympia, Greece.

The best, till now, greek beer I ve ever tasted. Good taste of coffe and chocolate, not exactly dark one, and good enough aroma. The foam lasts till the end as a light ring.
