Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle in Sarajevo. Nearly black except the slight hint of copper on bottom. Lacing is scattered. Aroma is pretty rich with molasses and sweet pumpernickel. Nice body is neither too thin or big, making it super drinkable. Solid malt character is balanced by a dry moreish finish and a little bread crust. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.33l bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate and toasted malt. Taste is sweet with chocolate and roasted malt. Medium body. Overall it’s pretty nice dunkel, I expected something more average or under average.

minutemat (1994) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
330ml bottle, thanks to MarkoNM. Pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet berries. Taste is weak dark lagery flavours, a bit flat. Not a lot going on really, a tad strange with an odd sweetness, and tastes a little past its best.

Erzengel (4893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2014
Smooth-fresh, slightly roasted, but not much deepness. The mainpart is smooth, fresh, easy to drink, but still nice. Hints of roast, hints of bitterness. Quite dry till the end, not too much sweetness there. Ok!

wvhoran (390) - Tasmania, - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with a dissipating tan head. The aroma is very breadish, with caramel/toffee, the flavour has more roasted malt and some crap coffee, toffee. Average, but drinkable.

hrabren (73) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 20, 2014
0.33 bottle in Beli konj, Slovenske Konjice, Slovenia. Pours black with off-white head, diminishes quickly. Hardly distinctive aroma of roasted malts, some sweetness and bitterness, roasty, doesn’t linger, some unpleasant iron aroma in the finish. I don’t recommend it.
