BlackHaddock (6902) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
The best before date is 31st Jan 2009, drank Nov 2008, with strong English Cheddar cheese and Celery salt (try it, its fantastic with any beer). Poured into Gordon Thistle shapped glass twice so I could see the colour and head better. The deepest ruby red you are ever going to see, looks coal black until you hold it up to a strong light. The large tan head soon turned into a weaker covering and then a wispy half covering and a collar. The aroma was of richness, toasted or burnt malted barely, good for a lager, even a dark one. I often stuggle to pick up smells from lagers, this was a whole lot beter. My portfolio of Dark lagers is growing and this one is towards the top of my list so far. It has some body and a presance many fail to reach. The burnt maltiness comes through in the taste, but there isn’t a dry, burnt feel to the beer, it is well balanced and easy to drink. Glad I had it, and yes, it was worth the extra wonga.

Farblich ist er ziemlich dunkel und beitzt eine schöne Schaumkrone! Er riecht nach mittelstarkem Kaffeepulver. Geschmacklich Kaffee-bitter, dazu schön hopfig und malzig, mir gefällt er gut, ziemlich lecker! Wenn ich etwas näher an der Tschechischen Grenze wohnen würde, würde ich dieses Bier sicherlich häufiger trinken da dies nicht so ist, geniesse ich die letzten Schlucke und freue mich auf die anderen beiden Biere von Bernard! Fazit: Herrlich, überdurschnittlich, juhu!! :D Test vom 13.3.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,13,13,11,13 - 12,65

seritomi (362) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 27, 2012
Áttetsző sötét, híg közegű. Világosbarna habbal. Illatában erős kávét és gyümölcsösség jön elő. Nem túl testes és nem édes, laza "vizes". Utóízében erősen hamus benyomást kelt égetett cukorral. Patent nedü.

Vinegar92 (61) - Matera, ITALY - APR 20, 2012
Birra dall’aspetto tipico da dunkel, schiuma mediamente persistente. Aroma tostato, e lo conferma il gusto che riporta vagamente a una stout.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2012
On draft at the 2012 NWAF, Manchester. Pours a black colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma of caramel, roasty malt, chocolate, grass and caramel. Fairly typical Pilsener flavours of grassy hops, caramel and alcohol with some roasty malt and burnt toast also. Moderate carbonation and quite dry to finish. A foamy mouth-feel and a little smoky also. Tasty.
