Black beer with brown head.The aroma is a bit burned and the flavor has notes of coffee. The beer is a bit thin.

Many thanks for this beer to CH-303. Piwo ma srednia pianke ale solidna i w miare trwala, bardzo odznacza sie ma szkle. Ciemno brazowa barwe, nawet jeszcze nie przelewajac wszystkiego i juz byla nieprzezroczysta. Metne i pachnace ciemne piwo piernikiem. W smaku wytrawne palony slod, tort czy ciasto czekoladowe, piernik z rodzynkami do tego nieco lukrecji. Zasluzony top w swoim stylu.

Pours nearly black. However palate is light, a small amount of smoke. Dark chocolate and dark malt dominates. It was served very cold. After warning I noticed a lot of honey on the nose and tongue.

Fine for the Schwarzbier style noted above, but bottle calls it a stout. Too bland and sweet for a stout.

I bought this bottle at Manora Geneva. I drank it yesterday at home, relax after the job. The price and quality is really good, nice product, the best beer from this brewery. The body is a deep black color, brown foam and creamy. The taste is well balanced, mixing roasted malt, coffee, toffee, a little bit smocked, hop, bitterness. It sounds like a porter. The taste in the mouth is just great.

andrepintado (3493) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle thanks to CH-303. Dark color. Thin brown head. Thin sweetness, medium bitterness. Finish is dry and long. Aroma is coffee, liquorice, chocolate, roasted, light fruity. Very very good. I wasn’t expecting this at all!

F: big, brown, very good retention. C: dark, opaque. A: roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate, dark bread, molasses, hint of alcohol, floral hoppy. T: mostly roasted malt, dry coffee, cocoa powder, caramel and liquorice but not on sweet side, very smooth, medium full body, lover carbonation, very good and my first example of this beer style, enjoyed it, 33cl bottle from Coop in shopping centre Serfontana in Morbio Inferiore in Switzerland.

NordicV (2370) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2016
Mörkt brun till svart öl med beige skum. Doft av kaffe, mörk choklad och malt. De rostade tonerna i smaken är mjuka och behagliga. Lättare inslag av aska tillkommer i smaken.

SinH4 (4974) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, lacto?, some roasted malt. Taste is sweet chocolate and lacto. Medium carbonation. Pretty good.
