Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 20, 2010
Canned 50cl. Courtesy of oviglado. Very dark appearance. Tall light beige head. Inviting chocolatey nose. The sweetness is balanced by a nice astringency from the roasted malt. Creamy palate. Smooth and very drinkable, yet warming on the swallow. Sweet finish which is reminiscent of chocolate powder. Deeply pleasant. Thanks a lot oviglado! luttonm (6562) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2010
.5l bottle from Budapest. Wow, wish I had this around more often. Deep black-brown pour with huge creamy mocha head. Nose is a big macro-sweet but first sip is robust with smoke and roastiness. A bit of a bite to the body, a touch of alcohol. Great malting notes with sour-roast, honey and ham. Surprising and tasty, cheers to Hungary. inbirraveritas (1603) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2010
0.5 l bottle.
Dark brown/ruby colour with a fine pored, medium pale brown head on its top, average carbonation within the glass.
The smell is (light) roasty and sweet. The start is sweet-sour and sharp, the taste’s sweet and chocolate flavoured.
Aroma’s of roasted malt and some spice, the finish is chocolate-bitter, tiny alcoholy and dry on palate.
Body’s medium and the texture is light sticky and kinda slick, too.
A nice stuff by Gösser. SilkTork (5779) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2010

Canned, Deep red brown color, with huge tan head. Roasted nose. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, nuts. Flavour is the same withalcohol coming through. Nice brew, but a bit thin bodied and alcohol stings out. Maybe could value it more on a cold witner evening MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2009
A Mes rate: Can at GBBF.Rune (13200) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2009
Dark brown with a reasonable off white head. A decent dunkler bock. Nice chocolate and liquorice, faint sourness. Good fruit in the finish. Not bad.
500ml can hand delivered by Frau Eva returning from her autumn trip to Budapest. Initial huge and densely head, with fawn coloured foam. Deep, ruby beauty in body appearance. Fragile, spotty lacework on the glass. Mild aroma of chocolate malts added by an herbal touch. Fine transition from aroma to the taste of grainy chocolate mixed with dark fruits. Mid-lived finish of dry chocolate malts. Surprisingly easy to drink. Quite joyful, without being outstanding (at home, Tromsø 02.10.2009). Christian (13759) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2009
