Tap @ Tokyo Bird, Sydney. Doesn't have the malt complexities of the German dunkels, but a good, lightish quaffing style, perfect for slamming back without thinking too much with good bar food.

Pours deep brown with slight white head. Light bready aroma and taste and touch of roastiness. Quite clean tasting.

The look of this is astounding: blackish brown, huge puffy head that laces everywhere and looks cake-like. Minimal smell - the head traps it in - but coffee, dry roasted, bread and grains. Taste is very smooth. No bite, no real bitterness, no sharp coffee or roasty taste. Just balanced, pristine. But don’t ya want a little character to your black brew?

Sampled from a 33cl bottle. Pours black with a hint of brown at the edges. Beige head and medium carbonation. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste is of burnt malts but it quite quickly fades, leaving quite a thin aftertaste. Mouthfeel is also rather thin. A very clean beer, but a little bland. Good initial taste, but a little disappointing. edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
