EithCubes (5195) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Sweet dark malty aroma with caramel, mild roast and hints of astringent veggie. Dark red-brown with a light brown, frothy and clingy head. Body is thin and a tad sticky. Roast with caramel and a little grit, medium astringent bitterness throughout leading to a dry and toffeeish aftertaste. Some nice hoppy funk in the middle- and endgame. Good balance between sweetness an dbitterness. Flavor is complex and comes in waves. Took me a while to get into this (its charms are subtle), but I do like it quite a bit.

Brown reddish colour with a light brown head. Roasted malty aroma with chocolate and vanilla notes. Nice complex flavor with some chocolate notes, a caramel sweetness and a dry bitter finish.

Erzengel (4968) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Schöne dunkelbraune Farbe mit beigem Schaum. Das Bier verstöhmt einen angenehm malzig-röstmalzig-süßlichen Geruch. Im Antrunk ist da Bier herb-malzig mit angenehm milder Note. Zum Hauptteil entwickelt es einen vollmundig-malzigen Geschmack mit süßlich-röstmalzigen Einschlägen und einer ganz schwachen Bitterkeit. Die malzige Süße üebrwiegt aber über dem röstmalzig-herben. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine röstmalzig-trockene, zugelich aber malzig-süßliche Note.
→ Leckeres röstmalziges Dunkles. Für meinen Geschmack aber ein Bisschen zu süß! 10/12/10/11

Marko (4175) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle from the Albert Hypermarket in Chodov, Prague
Poured a dark red/black body with a tan head that went away slow leaving nice lacing. Weak nose, some maltiness I guess. Sweetish roasty malty taste. Very very light bitterness. Gets drier near the end. Definitely will rerate.

erickok (4096) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 5, 2012
Deep brown body and light tan head. Cacao, pecan nuts, wholewheat bread. Quite smooth, nice mouth feel. Light sweet and roasted. Good balance, none of the expected factory taste. Body is even a bit fatty. Well made, good brewer. (50cl bottle)

Bamsen78 (3956) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2013
On tap @ Penzion Mona, Harrachov. Pours slightly hazy dark brown with stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with a note of dried fruit. Complex, sour and sweet flavour of malt and fruit, offset by a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Decent.
