UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013

330ml bottle along with the IKEA Ol Ljus lager bought during a weekly sale at local IKEA store.Clear dark reddish brown colour; Minimal head and off-white foam which disappears in less than 20 seconds; No lacing and okay carbonation; strong smell of dark malt and cheap soy sauce; Light body and very watery palate, with taste of coffee sludge, faint malt and straw. Light but evident hop bitterness with lingers with dry after taste.

Comments: After the terrible experience I had with IKEA’s Ol Ljus lager, the expectation with this one has to be lowered. Turns out it was just as bad but in an entirely different manner. Its smell is a poor-man Mackeson XXX gone rotten, and if you can get pass that, its artificial and bad coffee taste will post a challenge to many beer tasters. Adding the non-head and watery body, this combination just doesn’t add up. Stay away.

Especially in comparison to the lager this is a pretty decent dark beer. We used it for a sauce and it turned out great also.

330ml bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie. Pours dark, thin off-white head. Aroma caramel, lightly musty. Taste is caramel, dark malts, nice sweetness. Not bad i guess.

Schönes braun schaum ist auch in Ordnung, im Geruch malzig leichte Karamell röst und Kaffee Aromen, im Geschmack im Geschmack röstmalz Karamell ein Hauch Kaffee angenehm herb, gar nicht so schlecht

Bought at the Reading branch. Can’t not drink it following flat-pack assembling which may or may not have included some bouts of rage. Sweet yeasty floral aroma, with dank basement undertones. Looks like a glass of cola, with a thin off-white head. Sweet. Pretty weak but for me that’s preferable to sickly sweet. Light bodied. Watery. Lively carbonation. Short finish. Not great but cold and wet. Main issue is the complete lack of flava.

CAS- Esta #cerveza posee una corona de espuma con cierta densidad aunque su duración ciertamente es muy efímera. Su carbonatación es media tirando a floja y en su aroma destaca principalmente por este toque a regaliz que también se percibe en la boca desde el primer sorbo, aunque en boca también se aprecia un muy suave toque a tostado y nos deja un regusto final "dulzón". GAL- Esta #cervexa posue unha coroa de espuma con certa densidade ainda que a súa duración certamente é moi efímera. A súa carbonatación é media tirando a frouxa e no seu cheiro destaca principalmente por este toque a regaliz que tamén percíbese na boca dende o primeiro grolo, ainda que na boca tamén apréciase un moi suave toque a torrado e deixanos un regusto final "lambón".

330ml bottle (Ikea, Milton Keynes)
Sweet toffee caramel aroma. Deep red, small persistent tight tan head. Even more caramelly taste, deathly dull. Medium light palate, but of fizz cuts through the sweetness. Terribly macro, it’s a big fat narp from Anna.

Acaro (235) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 8, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 Aroma: Cereal notes hidden behind hay. Appearance: Soft black color with a light hazy liquid and soft white head. Taste: Medium sweet notes followed by a light bitter touch. Palate: Light body with thin texture and soft carbonation. Abrupt coffee finish. Overall: I was expeting a bit more after trying the blonde version but this one has even less features. Again, another fresh beer for summer.

Aroma: brown sugar, toffee Taste: medium sweet, brown sugar, toffee, light toast
