12oz bottle, thanks to Brian M for sharing. Bottled 10.02.15. Dark brown color. Ring of khaki head. Some loose bits of lace. Up front in the nose, I get that burnt popcorn smell that I typically associate with too-old lagers. Kind of peppery, spicy in the flavor. Touch of olive, some metallic. Not good. Medium body. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lighter to moderate bitter taste, lighter to moderate sweet, kind of dry. Mild bite at the back. Not impressed at all with this. edgallow (4377) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2016
pours black with a off white head. Aroma of coffee and caramel. Taste is chocolate, coffee and some grass. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 16, 2015
Where and how: tasting, b. 355 ml r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2015
Aroma: proper, hint of smoke, ash with black malts. Pleasant surprise here. 7+
Top: medium, lighter, off-white with fizzy mid.
Base: dark brown into black
Palate : medium-thinner in body, dry consistency. Typical carbonation for style, average plus finish.
Taste: pleasant, dry, roast with smoky hints. I like its middle/late smoky character.
other notes nice and proper.
Rather light, a bit of malt, but not sweet. Some roasty toasty feel, some nuts. Slightly watery overall. Sammy (12623) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
Low on mouthfeel. Radek’s bottle. Dark brown with some mocha head. Hitting the style. Malty and some roast.

Bottle. Pours a black color with off white head. Roasty, toffee, slight nutty aromas. Burnt, ashy, malty, slight metallic flavors. Not as good as I was expecting based on their other German lagers I’ve had. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2015
