Argonian (248) - Athens, - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a black body, with a rich brown head that stays fully in my glass. Not much in the arma, very faint, nots of coffee. Taste is different in any way. A festival of coffee, rosted matls, then caramel, nuts, awesome, for a greek brewery. Medium carbonation, heavy body, oily texture. Its something more than a good try for this brewery. Its a very good beer.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Bottled@wPBFIII. Deep coppery brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is soapy, mild nutty and sappy notes. Flavour is big time saccharine, sweeness with mild toasted and roasted notes. Interesing, but too sweet and somehow artificial thanks to the saccharine.

laiti (4944) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
50 cl bottle @ wPBF14, BBE 05/2014
Aroma feels unclean with sugar, syrupy tones - feels like kotikalja. Flavour is oversweet with sugar, syrupy tones and some cocoa. Feels artifical. Like some cheap east European dunkel.

olio (5271) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
50 cl bottle @ wPBF14.
Pours dark red color with a small head. Aroma of malts, wood, some herbal and even soapy notes, faint licorice and syrup. Flavor of syrup, sugar, wood, and caramel malts. Watery and very sugary sweet palate. Not very pleasant.

TBone (11903) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 500ml from Beer Factory Dark nut brown color, small steady beige head. Toasted aroma has milky notes and caramel. Light bodied and watery palate. Milky with hints licorice and caramel. Low bitterness, sweetish. Could be maltier for this ABV.

King_Beer (6) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 24, 2013 does not count
Its appearance, aroma, flavors, body, and finish is very well balanced, but has a terrible Label, very confusing.

gunnar (4865) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Greekbeershop.gr. Pours clear dark ruby as Coke with a small tanned head, fast disappearing. Aroma of grainy malts, weak smoke and roast. Taste is very weak roasted malts, light sweet, thin watery mouthfeel, not amongst the best schwarzbier i have had.

bb (6695) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown beer with a dark cream head. Nutty, roasty aroma with caramel. Roasty, nutty flavor with caramel. Medium bodied. Roast and grain lingers with caramel.

Douberd (1697) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2013
Note* The bottle has exactly the same label as the bottle with the unpasteurized version and the same barcode also. In fact on the 1 Liter unpasteurized bottle the "500 ml" of the label was crossed out with a blue permanent marker. Bottle, 500 ml, bought in Greece, poured into a lager glass. ABV 5% Black body with two fingers of froathy, beige head. Low retention, no lacing left on the glass. Great aroma. Milky chocolate up front, then from the back are coming aromas of roasted malts and some coffee too. Nice taste too, roasted malts here too that linger on the aftertaste and coffee on the finish. Some metallic notes, nothing too offensive though. Medium thick body, average, biting carbonation. Oily palate. Overall very nice beer, especially when you consider it comes from a greek microbrewery.

lagerette (30) - - JUL 7, 2013
500 ml Bottle. The label was different from the one you have published here, but this was certainly the name of the beer i drunk. Pours dark brown with beige head and very little lacing. Aromas of dark fruits raisins and plums, coffee and caramel. Taste similar. Medium carbonation. A light beer for the style but nice if you like dark beers and you are in a sunny beach in Greece. An enjoyable beer, the best of Zeos brewery

gertialex (8) - GREECE - JUN 30, 2013 does not count
Bottle. Dark brown color with white head. Smells like roasted malts and coffee. Medium body and medium sweet taste combined with coffee, nuts and raisin flavor. Made from one of my favorite microbreweries and for one more time I really enjoyed it.
