Pouring black with a slightly roasted nose. Some sourness with roasted malt and nuts in the aroma. Not really entertaining, but a decent drinkable beer.

McTapps (6630) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
Beer pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with low creamy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and roast. Taste of intense malt, leaves, woods, milk and nuts. Light sour, light smokey-roasty finish. Drinkable but not really nice.

Monteith valt over het algemeen tegen. Ze weten heus wel te brouwen maar is naar mijn idee gebrouwen voor een groot publiek. Alles is erg vlak van smaak. Niet echt craftbeer te noemen.

A rather thin, dark lager-bier. Hints of smoke and coffee, nothing overpowering. Nice enough and worth trying, taste improves as it gets warmer in the glass.

WilleLW (260) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2013
Black colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a slight hint of hops. Taste of roasted malt with notes of chocolate and a finishing coffee bitterness. A slight metallic taste in background with some sourness (in a peculiar way). A light body without beeing watery. A good beer but with a slightly odd after-taste that doesnt fully suit my taste.

WebersTap (2) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2013 does not count
Thin and fizzy but easy to drink. The carmel hits you like a fricking macchiato and renders your taste buds inert for the remaining 300ml. Either that or the surprise just wears off and leaves you wanting a real beer. Id pass on this next round.

330ml bottle. Dark brown colour with average, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma, a touch of roast and grass, hints of chocolate. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty, a touch of milk chocolate and cappuccino, minimally roasty and bitter hoppy finish.
