Roast aroma. Beige head. Dark coloured and chocolaty with some alcohol present. A little dryness in a malt finish. Bov (13442) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 12, 2009
courtesy of Oliver Bieri - opaque dark black coloured with a firm and long lasting beige foam; fairly toasted nose with notes of ashes and bacon; moderate malt body, very creamy palate, tart and slightly acidic; moderately dry, creamy and toasted malty finish with weird notes of vegetables - something looks wrong to me here fugitive (2067) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 11, 2009
Dark brown color. Pleasant, sweet aroma with some roasted tones. Finish is quite good. FatPhil (17510) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2009
330ml bottle (Stockman, Tallinn)fonefan (52982) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
Almost black, brief fizzy tan head. Slightly sharp and almost sour aroma,
but not off. Sharp carbonation, quite harsh. Roasted body. Taste has
some of the sharpness from the aroma, and quite a kick of really burnt
malts. Not so far as to be ashy though, quite a good schwartz in fact.
Finish is almost entirely deeply roasted malts.
Bottle 330ml. @ RBESG 09 Grand Tasting @ [ The Harlequin, Sheffield, England. ]
