4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 The beer is pitch black on the eye. With a light behind it, you can distinguish a dark ruby red tint. Beautiful. The thick layer of foam, which had a slightly light almond color, disapears to leave a thin drape of foam. The smell is delicious. Aroma’s of roasted barley, coffee, dark chocolate and the light aroma of a fresh Irish lager from the tap. The taste has all these beautiful flavors as well. There are those bitter roasted barley tones, combined with a coffee, dark chocolate and toffee inferno. This beer has a lot of taste. In the finish there is a sweet alcohol aroma at first, later this makes place for the bitter smokey roster barley, which stays there for a pleasant time. The beer has a nice palate. Not to gassy and not to flat, the perfect middle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle.
Aroma: Black cola body with a medium sized tanned head (2 fingers)
Aroma: Chocolate, Roasted malts, caramel. with hints of coffee.
Taste: Follows the aroma there is some Roasted malts then some sweet caramel, but just as you think it will become something too sweet (As the problem with their Porter was) thhere is this sourness kicking in and some grass and cofee in the finish.
Thin body, but not watery, below average car bonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellent beer, a porter-stout rather than a Schwarzbier. Very fine roasty taste, nice bitter creaminess, very harmonious. Nice artwork, too.

Bottle from The German Club 210415. Brown colour with a crackling coffee coloured head that settles quite quickly. In the one there is a nice combination of sweetness and burnt toffee aromas. The body is very thin in the mouth and the beer actually looks like flat cola and carries a burnt aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ciemne, nie opalizujące, z obfitą z początku pianą która szybko znika. W zapachu czekolada, kawa, lekki chmiel. W smaku palony słód, kawowa kwaśność i leciutka chmielowa goryczka.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
14.04.2015 istanbul, şişe. Renk siyah, koyu kızıl, köpük kahverengi 2-3 parmak ancak kalıcı değil.. Gazlılık az ve viskozite düşük.. Koku kavrulmuş malt, hafif kahve.. Çok derin değil.. Isındıkça şerbetçiotunun otsu aromatik kokuları da alttan hissediliyor. Tadım kokuya benzer şekilde düz, koyu kavrulmuş malt tatları dışında damakta kalıcılık az.. İçimi kolay, damakta kavrulmuş tınılar bırakan, ısındıkça da otsu tatları ortaya çıkan bir siyah bira..
