ha1ag (701) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2010
From the supermarket in Velky Meder. Very dark, almost black color, with tan long-lasting fluffy head. Some lacing, sweet nose. Aroma is caramel and sweet. Flavour is roasted coffee with some bitterness. VERY watery which is not compensated by the bitter palate. Could be a good one with more body.

cheap (3972) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2010
17 oz bottle from Barvarianpurity, thanks Andre! Nice dark beer pour. Smell is a little mustry and leather but certainly palatable. Choco malt olfactory in the back ground. Thin if any head but the second pour yields a rock half inch head. Color of head is dirty tan. Toffee and laid back with hardley any and barely roastiness. Mild alky thru-out. Dull back of throat effects. Some decent carbonation in there. A fun and mild choco beer with a tad of mulling personality.

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 21, 2008
Fekete színe van és "piszkos" habja ami közepesen tart és nyomot hagy a pohár oldalán.Illata édeskés,karamellás.Megkóstolva is ott a karamella,de csak az első kortyok édesek.Aztán jön egy pörkölt kávés,kesernyés íz.Kissé vizes teste van..Az utóíze is igen keserű.
