2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from a Durban area store. Pours thin and fizzy, and whatever head there is, vanishes to leave a flat brew with only a few signs of bubbly life. The aroma is oddly dirty, like--dirt, soil, even mold. It’s not as unpleasant as it sounds, it’s just not smells normally associated with even an unusual beer. The flavors are 180 degrees turnabout with some nice dark caramel and toffee flavors as well as some light chocolate. Thin but drinkable, and leagues ahead of the Laurentina pale.

330ml can. Dark brown with tan head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. A bit light on flavour. Perhaps it’s because the colour is making expect the flavour of a porter or stout. Mouthfeel is fairly thin. Still, a reasonably enjoyable beer. Sampled as part of the SAB Beers For Africa box. Beerkenstock (114) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2017
Eye: pours a dark brown color with a quickly dissipating white head and medium carbonation.
Nose: dark fruit, chocolate and caramel perhaps
Mouth: sweet licorice, dark chocolate and caramel or even vanilla, dark fruits as well (dates perhaps...), a bit watery and not much carbonation though
Palate: more bitter notes here, nuts as well but still sweet
Overall: nice, very drinkable beer which reminds me more of a mix between dark and porter. deyholla (12033) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2016

Bottle @ The Levi Tasting. Thanks, travlr! Deep brown with a small head. Rich malt forward nose. Caramel chocolate cookie. Some plum. Brown sugar. Flavor is a bit knackered. Some signs of oxidzation. Cocoa and caramel sweet body. Light cardboard. Peppery fijish. A bit oily, soft. thomashall (999) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle shared at tasting. Brown copper pour. Aroma is malts and licorice. Taste is more dry and ashy. Not my favorite.
