12 oz. bottle, pours a dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out stale bready malts / cardboard. Flavour is along the same lines, with cardboard and stale bready malts. Weak, watery and very much off. Very poor. But it’s an Albanian tick. andrewje41 (4519) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle poured at the tasting. Thanks to luttonm again for the well traveled bottles. Cool tick. Dark amber pour with a heavy grain aroma. Stale hop like, and off putting. Grainy linger, with minimal roasted malt. Beer wasn’t as good as the idea of trying it. Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle - Light toast and sweetness. Deep brown with a decent beige head. Malty and sweet. Not much there but ok. Prufrockstar (2259) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle shared by lutton - thanks! Clear deep ruby, small ring of head. Thin body, toast and light chocolate, toffee, caramel. Super thin, chalky. Not bad (but also not all that much fun to drink a lot of if there are other options around). biir (1681) - Berlin, - OCT 13, 2015
Many Albanians pretend that this is their best beer. Unusual, unround dark beer, with strong notes of coffee, dark malt and something like licorice. Cant really recommend it.

Very dark brown with minimal espresso-like head. Aroma of fresh baked bread! Taste gets coffee, roasted malts and caramel. Not too bad. luttonm (6955) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2015
.33l at Belgrade ‘crappy’ mini tasting. Thanks Alberto (kinda). Dark rosy cola, tannish head. Very sweet, milky aroma. Slight bitter, a little coffee, but fights to terrible, weird fruitiness. Bitter cola, odd sweet. Quite awful, and weird!

Absolut trinkbares Dunkles mit einer milden Malzigkeit, dafuer umso wuerziger und gut perlend im Abgang. Durchaus sueffig und nur leicht muffig. Voll ok.
