SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Black pour, no head. Roasted malt with coffee and herbal notes in the nose. Flavor is sweet then roasted then coffee/chocolate. Medium body. Complex. Better than expected.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Pours black with a brown head. Fruity, molasses aroma. Very unique flavor. Malty and slightly smoky, but not overly so on either. Very smooth. I kind of like this one.

JonMoore (2019) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2005
Decent enough black lager. Malty, slightly fruity and sweey. Quite thin bodied. Fairly drinkable. Not bad, but not particularly worth seeking out.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2005
Unique but at the same time rather strange. Grimy industrial aroma. No head or lacing to speak of - looks more like Coca Cola than any beer offhand. I wonder if there are sugar extracts of some sort added, as this is rather sweet for 4.4% and it has a soda pop element to the body (most colas use "high fuctose corn syrup"; I wonder if this beer does). But who knows, the "secret ingredient" might be some exotic herbs chewed into pulp by the Rainforest People. Still drinkable but definitely way out of its style.

Black Coloring with Espresso Head. Perhaps a Slightly Fruity Aroma? Sweet Malt. Rich Bread Dough...Thick Body...a Nice Sweet and Rich Tasting Brew.

oldno7 (137) - Spokane, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Pours black ( ruby when held to the light ) with a thin tan head. Has a fruity aroma and flavors of fruits (apple, grape, raspberry ), and honey.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Pours black with small head around edge. Slight reddish tint. No overwhelming flavors or aromas. Flavor has honey, oat, caramel, chocolate. Very good. Good mouthfeel.

Pailhead (5675) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Bottle: Sweet creamy malt aroma Pours a dark brown with orange hilights when held to the light. Tan head with decent retention. Real sweet. Sugary and fruity. No hops. Decent chocolate flavor. Sweetness increases in the finish and starts to remind me of gummy livesavers.

LutzBrau (43) - iowa city, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2005
I have a weakness for chocolate & rasberries..both of which I could grasp in both aroma and flavor. It was a bit too sweet and suprisingly thin/watery for a dark beer. I disagree with the full-bodied claim, but I was pleasantly suprised and would buy it again....if it were cheaper.

Black color with a thin head. Bitter malt aroma and taste. Very simple, but tasty enough.
