Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
500 ml bottle at home. Poured into a lager glass. ABV 4.7%
Brown coloured with a good sized tan head, thick and creamy, with good retention, leaving heavy lacing around the glass.
Aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel.
Nice taste, toasted malts, chocolate, light coffee and mocha, a bit of metal, light caramel, fruity notes on the finish. Mildly bitter aftertaste.
Medium thin body, carbonation on the lower side.
Overall pretty good. Iznogud (4703) - CROATIA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle, 500 ml at Drustvo Prijatelja Piva, Zagreb. Pours brown with off white head. Caramel malty aroma. Roasted malts and caramel flavor. Sweetish. prairielove (4) - - APR 21, 2014 does not count
Drank out of hefeweizen a glass
Aroma: molasses, wood
Appearance: perfect amount of head but doesn’t linger for long, dark reddish brown colour
Taste: sweet molasses, definitely not a session beer but one tasted really nice. A lot nicer than I expected
Palate: kind of thin but just the right amount of carbonation
Overall: this beer surprised me, dark lager doesn’t describe it well

Bottle. Medium, beige head. Aroma at the beginning is mostly metalic, but later dark malts and some plums. Low carbonation. In taste sweet, friuty but too much watery. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottled (backlog, thanks Kim N!). Dark amber to copper colour with a small off-white fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malts, mild chocolate and a bunch of ripe sweet fruitiness and some mild toast. Flavour is toasted malts, some ripe sweet fruitiness along with some chocolate and mild caramelly and syrupy notes. Bodied, and not overly sweet.

Rating #1012 - March 1st, 2014 - Bottle from Coop - 4.7% - bought this because some guy orders 4 cases from me routinely - had to give it a whirl. Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is mild coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable for a light, roasty lager.
