Bottle. Low fluffy light brown head. Pitch black body. Coffee liquorice wineous aroma. Mildly smoked liquoricy liquorice coffee flavor, creamy and smooth. Low carbonation and a long finish. Hints of wood.

Bottle. It says its a product of Namibia on the bottle, but brewed in South Africa on this site, which is odd. Regardless of where its come from its a mighty fine beer, worth buying if you happen to find it. Id even go out on a limb and say its the best beer Ive ever tried from Namibia!

Brown dark beer, small brown and stable head. The aroma has earthy, cheese, grass, nuts and roasty notes. It has a full body, the flavor is strong, full of caramel and coffee notes and at the end a strong bitterness overcome. Enjoyable beer. Actually I didnt understand why if in the label says is a product of Namibia, I didnt get the mark on my map. Well I guess is because Bierwerk is a South African brand, but in their internet page they didnt even mention it.

Saw this obscure African beauty on the beer list at the Vue Grande in Queenscliff VIC and had to give it a crack. Great stout from the boys in Namibia, keep it up! Its better than the more more watery Ethiopean pale lagers we get out here. A rare gem and worth trying for sheer rarity. Nice!

Palme (4656) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2013
0.33l bottle @ Gaasa. As good as pitch black in the glass this one. Totally impossible to see through it even if Im holding it up against the light. The head is quite good looking, medium sized and light ashy brown in color. Smells really nice. Its quite sweetness-present, almost a bit sticky at first perhaps. I get lots of rich dark smokiness with dark roasted malts, dark caramel, sweet chocolate and a little bit of tar and leather. Smells really nice. Its really easy and lightdrinkable. Almost creamy oily in the mouth and it has a good oily mouthfeel. Lite of coffee blended with something smoky and chocolate, lactose (cause it has a clear sweetness), some soft grassy licorice traces and even a little bit of nuts here. Lingering black toasted malty flavors. Its most definitely a tasty and delicious African Stout. 17.10.2013

330ml bottle from Archive. Who would have thought that such good beer would come from Africa. Black with chocolate and malt aroma. Finishes long and a bit dry.

330 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Pitch black body with a rather fast disappearing beige head. Really nice, strong aroma of dark malt, moderate roasted, liquorice and a hint of dark fruit. Flavor is quite sweet, dark malt, moderate roasted, coffee, dark chocolate some molasses and some bitterness. Fine and well balanced body, long and sweet dark malt aftertaste. Nice, tasty and smooth, a bit too sweet by the end of the bottle, still a great stout.
