Fules (1148) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 6, 2017
Kicsi, gyorsan elolvadó hab, fekete szín. Aszalt gyümölcsös, kakaós illat. Száraz, kissé kakaóporos és savanykás, gyümölcsös ízek, enyhe fűszerességgel. Könnyed, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Iható, vékonyka stout.

nephirem (448) - CROATIA - JAN 21, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours black body with one finger beige head. Average head retention. Nice lacing. Pleasant smell, malty sweet with a touch of caramel, liquor and chocolate. Thin to medium body with aggressive carbonation. Slightly oily texture, quite nice, but would be better with softer carbonation. Bittersweet taste with slight acidity. Aroma of burnt malts, caramel, toffee. Touch of liquor. Bready. Somewhat cake-like. Dry mouthfeel. Regular finish, slightly ruined by metallic acidity. Overall, not bad but nothing to write home about either.

PlutonowyMan (710) - POLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. Piana, wysoka, sztywna, w kolorze ciemnego beżu, mocno trwała. Delikatny kawowy aromat miesza się z zapachem suchego, wręcz zbutwiałego drewna i wanilii, w tle bardzo nieznaczne nuty owocowe. Smak: kawa, wanilia, drewno jest jakby schowane. Nuty owocowe są wyraźniejsze i jednocześnie delikatnie kwaśne, dalej likier kawowy, delikatnie słodki. Na finiszu nieznaczna goryczka, kawowa, palona. Nasycenie niskie, odpowiednie.

thellgren (1001) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm. Text in back label is mostly in Hebrew, the rest is in Swedish. So this does not only conform to the German purity law it is also kosher. Appearance is dark brown. There is ruby also if you look it carefully against a bright light. Head is tan. Taste is smooth since there is no roasted barley. So, it is not dry, but it is not sweet either. More malts than in the regular version.
