UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Bottle in Formentera, Spain. Quite simple dark beer, but nice and not pretencious Grumbo (3156) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle from Eroski, Gibraltar. Pours almost brown with a dark brown/maroon tint and a small beige coloured head. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, slight wood, liquorice and vanilla. Medium to heavy sweetness, light roasted bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, slightly above average carbonation. TrefwoordPunk (1253) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours almost pitch black with a medium yellowish white head and an aroma of roasted malts, toffee, cocoa, nuts and brown sugar. The taste is light to medium sweet with a light to medium body, light carbonation and a long lasting both bitter and roaty finish. Far better than I expected.

This one was quite a basic beer on the whole and pretty much what I’ve come to expect from mass-market beers like this, although it was relatively easy to drink. The beer kicked off with some nutty flavours and a touch of caramel to impart some early sweetness to proceedings. There was a strong roasted bitterness to the beer throughout with touches of toffee nearer the middle that helped add to the earlier sweetness, a few burnt flavours managed to sneak in too though. It’s probably not a beer I’d go back to again, even if it was more readily available.

Nice dark chocolate, burned malts, light sweet, but very watery and thin, would be great with more body. midovark (976) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2017
Bottled. Pours deep brown with thin head. Strong chocolate notes are present both in aroma and taste with some slighter coffee and roasted notes. Wouldn’t be bad but too thin and watery.
