Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Looks like a slightly flat Coke. Grainy, lightly caramel aroma with no skunky notes - surprising since it came from a clear bottle. Flavor is caramel, lightly toasty, with just a hint of smoke. Not, bad, I’ve certainly had worse.

Bouteille 355 ml. 5% Bue à Plata Del Carmen au Tarrox. Couleur ambrée, mousse beige. Arôme de caramel, malt. En bouche, malt caramel. Finale sucrée. Bonne.

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, chestnut-brown colour with a beige and tall foamy head. Sweet toffee-malty aroma with spicy notes of anise and a tinge of marzipan. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malt-accented taste with present notes of caramel, toffee and a whiff of nuts; moderately sweet and caramely malty finish with hints of sour dough and shy herbal hops. Not that bad. 20.I.12

thetmaxx (927) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Took a few swings of this from the bottle, but found it to be very good, so I poured it in to a wide mouth glass. Aroma is plain of roasted malt. Flavor is clean, and chocolatey. Palate is pleasant. My ratings tonight have become generic. Overall a decent beer that I didn’t see coming.

marcus (10866) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Pours dark brown with a decent tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a mild carbonated chocolate and roasted malt flavor. A bit light on ingredient.

2.2
nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2011
33 cl. Nearly opaque chocolate with ruby tints and a lasting bead of cream above. Nose of skunk, with hints of caramel and light roasted coffee. Flavor is similar, with some toasted nut developing a bit later. Medium body is smoothly carbonated and well-balanced. Once the skunk nearly wore off (or wore me down), it really was a special dark beer from Mexico. .

TBone (18551) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2011
Bottled 355ml (BZ, BB 061111)
Deep amber color, steady creamy beige head. Caramelly, bock-like bready, toasty maltyness. Light to medium-bodied. Cola-like caramelly flavor, sweetish with light harsh maltyness in the finish. Suprisingly similar to some FIN/SWE/EST Viennas. Nothing special but way too better than expected.

2.2
RobertDale (6980) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes amber with an average beige head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel and some chocolate. OK>

2.5
saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle. Medium head with good duration. Aroma and taste are caramel, malt, and hops.

1.7
mile (4067) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle . Light brown, very small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty and sweet aroma, caramel with some fruitiness and bread. Body is light to medium, malty and s sweetish flavor, caramel. Finish is short to average malty and sweetish, caramel and some alcohol. Caramel sweet “dark lager”.
