rok1024 (1269) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - APR 20, 2014
Clear brown appearance, medium head. Roasted malt aroma, coffee on the mouth, some hops, not too much bitterness. Well balanced and good Dunkel style beer.

oh6gdx (24430) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2005
Bottled, black opaque, beige nice head. Sweet caramellish aroma. Flavour is sweet and a bit smoky. The aftertaste is a bit bitter and dry. Wellbalanced beer, but lacks something in taste. Good beer to drink while being social with friends.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Bought in Germany under the name "Topvar Marina Schwarzbier" with 5,0% ABV. Dark, almost black, lightly off-white head. Very soft with some sweetness from the malts but also a lightly burned touch. 120205

Very good - dark brwon colour, thick head. Great, rich taste, slight coffee and caramel notes, bitter in the end. Definitely worth checking out.

mmahut (1784) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber body with creamy tan head. Aroma has light caramel notes, hay, malty. Taste has medium caramel profile with earthy bitterness, little astringent after taste. Body is full, high carbonation. Actually, this is pretty good for the origin.

JorisPPattyn (9131) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2016
Thick, dense beige head over deep redbrown beer. Impressive clear chocolate nose, as opening a bar of chocolate, then mineral water, dark green leaves, bread. Good dry bitterish initial flavour with a sweet undertone. Again chocolate, leafy and bready. Finishes empty, however. Human sweat warming up. Feels very carbonated; light body, slick. Impresses at first, only to loose it in the end. Ďakujem, Peter!
