(Falsche) Es hat eine Farbe, wie Ebenholz, scheint filtriert mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist holzig, röstig, malzig und etwas wie Melasse. Der Geschmack ist schlank, röstig mit etwas Kaffee. Bittere gibt es keine. Im Nachgeschmack ist eine leichte Süße und ein bisschen Röstaroma zu schmecken. blackisle (2580) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle 50cl. Clear dark red brown color, good frothy tan head, good retention and lacing; aroma sweet malt, bread, fruit syrup, slightly roasted, butterscotch; taste light sweet, slightly bitter, bit toasted, milky way notes; medium body, oily texture; lightly toasted mild bitter finish. Nice dunkel. Arrachtas (12) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
A malty, bready beer with a distinct Eastern European dark rye note, fresh and warming. Hops in the background, but relatively subdued. In the glass, the beer is a dark mahogany, like a well-aged whisky. Overall, this is a well-balanced, quaffable beer. The taste does a good job of following the aroma; being medium-bodied and sweet, but well-tempered by a hops presence that prevents it from becoming cloying or syrupy. Overall, I’d call it a fairly high-quality dark lager, a style that is not all that common any more these days. It is well-made, and inexpensive.

Strong roasted malt flavours with long-lasting and slightly dry hop after taste. Decent body, if a bit light. A relatively flavourful and refreshing interpretation of the style. deanso (10129) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - JUN 17, 2014
