2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the Brewpub. Aroma liquorice, rotten plums. Lets see further. Clear dark colour. Taste is very thin. Almost no flavour besides roasted, which makes it feel burnt. Trace amounts of caramel and liquorice. I could probably drink a whole glass, but with no great joy.

On draught at the brewpub. Not very nice, though no microbiological cauise for this detected. Just a bad mix of ingredients (I think). Blackened rather than caramelled. I noted that they dyed another beer green.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark purple to black pour with minimal light tan cover. Sweetish, prune-like, toffee and butterscotch laden dunkel finished by a slap of leafiness that dries it out. Different from the others who have never heard the notion of bitterness, but really executed as a draft and with obvious points to improve.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 0.5l from a 3l bottle ozujsko got from Slovenia (thanks to him, yet again)
Poured a dark red/black colour with no head (won’t take this against it though, I didn’t get it exactly fresh). A nice, pleasant caramel / toffee nose. The taste was watery, but pleasant. A fine caramel and toffee taste with some average hopiness that rounds up the taste and makes the background. The simplicity makes it dangerously drinkable, if nothing. It’s a nice beer, but nothing flashy. I’ll definitely try it again fresh if I get to Maribor.
