Beerbarella (348) - - MAR 19, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours clear very dark brown with a high brown head. Malty honey aroma. Wonderful full-bodied roasty malt taste with coffee and honey notes. Pleasant bitter roasty palate.

Christos (5471) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2013
330 ml bottle, bought in Germany. ABV is 4.1% Poured into a big Guinness glass. Black in colour, with a big beige, creamy head on top. Good retention, light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and a bit of coffee. Taste also of roasted malts. Aftertaste is slighty bitter, with notes of chocolate and coffee, only stronger here. Medium thickness on the body, light carbonation. Maybe it’s just my idea but I find it to have less of the creamy feeling on the body. A good, old Guinness, never to let you down.

Bottle. Mild coffee nose, with some prunes and yeast. Thick dark brown, rocky tan head. Light coffee initial flavors; dark fruit (prunes, raisins) in mid palate; finish has a sting of bitterness and carbonation. Thin-medium body. Good body.

graziano85 (456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 22, 2013
A black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and nuts maybe. Taste the same. Better body than the draught, but maybe for an easy evening I prefer the draught.

Armadill0 (353) - FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Tastes like roasted barley, chocolate and coffee. Taste is strong all around, slightly bitter which I find to be a minus in this case. Still very drinkable and tasty.

fantti (999) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin tumman colanvärisenä ja hieman valoa läpäisevänä. Vaahto on likaisen valkoinen ja iso jättäen reunuksen. Haju on paahteinen, maitoinen, marjainen, multainen ja marjapirtelöinen. Mieto maku on paahteinen, maitoinen, multainen ja hieman kahvinen. Suutuntuma on kevyt ja hieman tuhkainen. Kokonaisuutena tämä irkkutuotos on kuin maitokauppaversio, melko mieto ja harmiton. Lämmetessä tähän tulee enemmän makua ja täyteläisempi suutuntuma, etenkin mämmisyyttä nousee esiin.
