COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We condition the water for the beer with our proprietary Santorini basalt "Lava rock filter" and then blend the beer with flavourful ingredients of exotic hops, fragrant Santorini honey and Citrus Medica-a rare fruit brought to Greece from Persia by the army of Alexander the Great. For each 1€ of profit, Volkan will help reduce the Greek National debt by 50 eurocent.

Bottle, 02/03/15. Pours dark cola with a decent, off-white head. Aroma is light butter, light diacetyl, some roast and tobacco. Taste is some butter, light citrus, grain. Finishes herbally citric. Light, decent carbonation.

rosenbergh (7657) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 01/2016. (Cava Π) Athens, Greece. Dark brown colour with a small light tan head. Fruity hops, mild yeast, caramel sweetness, liquorice and notes of wheat in the aroma. The flavour is toasted malt, mild salt, airiness and some fruity notes. Thin and flat. A bit of a disappointment. But at least I helped Greece with the national debt*. * For each 1 euro of profit, Volkan will help reduce the Greek national debt by 50 euro cent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smooth dark and chocolate beginning. Fresh with mild yeast. Not much roast, but dark and dry caramel. The mainpart is round, nice fresh chocolate, mild yeasty in the aftertaste. Great brew!

Hansen (7081) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014
Its not a Dunkelweizen, its clear, has notes of toffee and caramel, so no Dunkelweizen. Its a Dunkel/Tmavý. Dark brown and clear. Off-white head. Aroma is sweet, toffee, faint cola too.

thb (735) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Darkest brown, lingering but minimal tight foam. Aroma is malty - toast, nuts, (toasted nuts!). Taste is mid-sweet roast - almost a Guinness-like character actually. In the malt character anyway. Then it moves to an odd finish, with something that I guess is honey? And the "citrus medica"? The whole "lava filtered" thing on the bottle is a bit annoying but it ends up with a pretty decent drink.
