A good dark beer with a caramel floral taste and slightly smoked aftertaste Gangstergafje (1437) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2017 13-07-2017; bottle; at home (bought online at www.drankgigant.nl, Oost-Souburg, The Netherlands).
The beer looks perfect. It’s like a beer should look. The color of the beer is very dark ruby red/brown, almost black. The deep dark color is amazing. It has a lovely ruby red glow. The beer seems clear but the darkness makes it hard to tell. There are some particles floating around maybe. On top of the beer a nice soft greyish layer of foam is formed. As the foam collapses, a nice thick soft drape is left.
The smell is nice. It’s not that strong though. I smell some delicious sweet malts, some raisins, bitter toasted malts and some hints of fresh bitter hops. The smell has a nice syrupy sweetness, also contains some caramel and nice spicy aromas.
The taste is great to. I taste lovely flavours of gentle coffee, chocolate and caramel. The lovely sweet and bitter malts are enhanced by a tiny hoppy freshness. The beer is good and very tasty.
I love the palate to. The body is medium, so is the carbonation. The beer feels very smooth, even creamy. It’s perfect together with the flavours and aromas. The finish is long and contains nice dark chocolate. Great beer. matzou (188) - SPAIN - JAN 7, 2017

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.Gurthnar (6461) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 26, 2016
Watery coffee and dark chocolate, some roasted notes. It isn’t bad, and isn’t brilliant. Ok would be the word...
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2016 Bottle. Lots of chocolate and toffee. Taste is rather sweet and sugary, but not completely out of balance. Light light roasted bitterness present. Easy drinking, relatively good.

Tummanruskea, kirkas olut kohtalaisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu toimiva, hyvin makea, hieman kahvinen ja salmiakkinen. Maku maltaisen makea, suolainen ja aavistuksen kahvinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Ihan kiva kokonaisuus, vaikkei toki mitenkään mullistavan hieno olekaan.
