IndianaRed (4091) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 25, 2004
BottlePoured out black with small light tan head and good lacing. Aropma was a faint compilation of molassas, coffee, and smoke. Taste was more of the smoke, charcoal, but also prunes, dates and cola. Feel was quite fizzy, medium to thin body. Moderately sweet and lightly acidic, bitter trailer.

Eructoblaster (4046) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2004
Deep brown/black beer topped with a nice creamy beige head. Coffee and roasted malt aroma and flavor. Very long bitter final. This is definitely a Schwarzbier that has nothing to envy to the legendary east-german ones.

Pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights and a thick, frothy light brown head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, fruits and roasted malt. Flavor of chocolate, fruits and roasted malt with a mild bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & tupalev - courtesy of jerc. Dark ruby-brown, small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt with a bit of smoke & tobacco. Thin body. Flavour of roasted coffee & dark malt. Finish is moderately dry, with a not entirely unpleasant sourness. Not bad.

For each bottle sold, royalties are donated to La Fondation de la Faune du Qubec for the protection of species at risk. Pours a dark brown colour like cola, with red highlights, a big creamy tanned head, great retention and patchy lace. The nose is roasted with malt, some coffee and molasse. Very tiny active carbonation from the bottom of the glass. Smooth mouthfeel and medium body. This dark lager tastes not too bitter and not too sweet, with the roasted malt and mild hops. Lingering, unoffensive, aftertaste. A very good alternative to those who like stouts and porter, but find them too heavy to drink many. This one has great drinkabilty.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle, thanks Jerc. Ok, this is getting late in the evening now. Dark brown pour, small tan head. Roast malt, coffee in mild aroma. Taste of roasted coffee beans over a thin mouthfeel. An interesting style for sure, I dont care for the thinness of it, but this turned out ok.
