Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2008
Dark brown with a light brown head. Sweetmalty aroma with some toasted and roasty notes, cooked vegetables and syrup. Abit too harsh bitterness in the flavor while the sweetness works. Its even abit creamy.

kappldav123 (6134) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Tastes mild-malty. Maltiness becomes stronger, smoky finish. Aftertaste like velvet. Good beer!

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet, roasted malty flavour with hints of coffee. Slighly dry and bitter finish. Medium bodied, smooth and easydrinking beer. I enjoyed it. Nothing special, but still a quite nice brew.

kpresley77 (147) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle courtesy of fonefan pours clear reddish brown with thin tan head. Aroma is sweet toffee malt and bread. First taste is bread and sweet malt with a sweet finish. This is a really smooth beer with not much carbonation which makes it easy to drink.

Thanks to kappeldave123 for this beer at Zinisters tasting. It was nice being the first USA’ers to rate this beer. Very black and dark with a small head. Nose of malt and medicine. Taste is of a full body, chewy, strong burnt malts, sticky. Different but nice.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle from kappeldave123. Thanks!
Pours a deep, shoe-polish brown with an aroma of Jello chocolate pudding snack pack; flavor follows suit but adds a touch of molasses. Average mouthfeel. Nice beer that looks like a lion but purs like a kitty.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Thanks to kappeldave123 for this beer. Dark caramel and toasted nut color with a thin brown head. Nose was dead on snack pack chocolate pudding (thanks Kagg!) with bready malts. Flavor of molasses and chocolate with a smooth soft finish.

MaltOMeal (1094) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 bottle thanks to KAggie and zinister. First American to rate this. Yes! This poured dark brown with a cola-like texture. Smell was roasted malt, but had some funkiness to it that I couldn’t put a description to. Taste was of roasted malt and molasses. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin with a dry finish. Interesting. Definitely different.
