Dark in the glass with a white head. slightly roasted smell. The beer starts smooth with a nice roasted caramel aroma. Not too sweet. The mainpart is full-bodied, nice caramel, slightly roasted with hints of sourness. Smooth. The aftertaste is medium, slightly malty sweet, nearly no bitterness.
Very nice for a beer from Palestine.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 Re-rate 8/5/11: Bottle at the brewery. Bottled 3 days prior to my visit. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, toasted bread and a drier finish. Tasty and easy-drinking. Best bottle I’ve had so far. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4
Re-rate 8/4/08: Dark brown color with a medium bubbly slowly-diminishing beige head. Aroma of malt, some bread and coffee hints and some fruitiness. Sweet malty flavor with some toasted bread, caramel, fruits and light spiciness. Finishes drier with roasty notes, hints of licorice and alcohol. Medium-bodied. Quite tasty. 6/4/6/3/13=3.2

Not much head as it pours pretty still. there’s some sourness on top of the really tasty toast flavor. Sweet caramel and maltiness are the real stars here. Great? No. Not bad either though just a tad on the sweet side.

Bottled at RBESG. Hazy nut brown, airy beige head. Strawberry aroma. Sweet and fruity with medium body. There’s some toffee and estery fruit. Salty finish. This is a good beer - so unlike the crap that Haus der 131 Biere sells under their name.

Bottled. Deep amber colour with mediumsized off-shite head. Aroma is big malts, some hops as well as some roasted notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with some grass. Also the roast is quite mild in the flavour.

Bottle. Thanks to Michael Rosenow who brought this home. Thin head over a cola-brown body. Slightly roasty malt smell with some brown sugar backing. The taste is fruity more than roasty, befitting an ale. Also some cider to the palate. Michael said he tastes coriander, but I don’t get much spice to it. A bit of tartness toward the end. Turns out nice.
