COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

dr.dod (480) - Szeged, - DEC 29, 2012
500ml bottle. This beer is very sweet, maybe the best example of the taste of caramel in a dunkel. This is good but there isn’t almost any beer-like character. Medium body, low Co2.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Clear amber with beige head. Some caramel, brown bread, quite malty, a touch of cocoa. After the malts there’s a light grassy and slight metallic finish. Medium sweet and light bitter. Just medium bodied with slight dry feel.

Gurthnar (5683) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 28, 2017
Tap at Salon piva. Rather amber than dark and the flavours correspond to the colour - only slightly more malty complexity than in the base Hell, with light caramel impression and slightly more body as well. However the beer remains centered on being sessionable, easy drinking. Good.

From tap at Salon Piva, Bratislava. Clear dark amber color with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is lightly yeasty (fruity), estery, along with sweet malts (caramel, honey). Medium watery body with a light to medium sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is full of plums together with honey, caramel and dried apples.

kaserov (526) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 23, 2017
Color cobrizo, amarronado, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de tres dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa. Aroma agradable a caramelo y un toque mínimo de malta tostada. Sabor a malta caramelizada, mínimo y muy suave, con toques de fruto seco. No capto mucha malta tostada ni en aroma ni en sabor. Se bebe y refresca, pero no me aporta nada más. Plana de narices.

tfontana (915) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 16, 2017
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Cigarette City. Appearance is clear red with slight orange, trace sparkle, two-finger width foamy beige head with fair retention and soapy lacing. Aroma is light fruit, yeast, malts, earth. Taste is European/noble hops, light roasted malt, nuts. Palate is medium bodied with slick texture, lively carbonation and mostly sweet but dry finish. Overall, aroma and taste are muted compared to the usual American beers I have, but still good.
