Nische (2224) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2016
Pours dark cola brown with almost no head. Roasted and smokey aroma with caramel and some dark fruits. Taste is similar with some smoke, tar, caramel and dark fruits. A littel bit thin and syrupy.

rondphoto (4431) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 30, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- bottled: Aug 20 2016 --- Aroma of dark roasted malt. Clear very dark ruby brown color, tan head that drops to a thin cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is rich dark roasted malt with a caramel base that moves through medium carbonation to neutral bittering and light smoke. Solid brew that has the misfortune of causing bloating as I drink it. A big gulp tastes so refreshing, and then tries in vain for the relief of a belch. Too bad.

Voodoo (666) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head which disappears quickly......aroma of malt, lactose type sweetness......taste is leathery, sits on the tongue and has a bland taste, then sweetens with a cardboard finish. Not really a fan.

3.3
ciocanelu (2523) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 5, 2016
Dark brown color with light brown head. Aroma has mostly dark, toasted malts, some bitter chocolate, brown sugar and a light acidity. Taste is slightly sweet at first, malty, but mostly roasty and bitter on the finish. Body is on the lighter side and has medium carbonation. Overall it’s ok but not special in any way.

4.3
tekstr1der (490) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Great color - deep mahogany - but almost no head. Aroma is roast malt and a hint of peat smoke, though not as much as some other of the style. Flavor is straight delicious. Throughout the sip a steady stream of sweet bready malt coats the tongue without being cloying. While not high-abv there is just no awareness of any alcohol. I could drink way too many of these. Finish is balanced and clean. So good.
