Skinnyviking (9550) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2009
Draught. High creamy off-white head. Clear dark red brown body. Caramel nut coffee roasted malt aroma. Bittersweet caramel nut coffee flavor without much hops bitterness. Low carbonation, long sweet aftertaste. Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
Dark brown with a lasting, light brown head, leaving lace. Weak toffee malt aroma. Sweet malty flavour with brown sugar and a slightly roasty finish. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2009
draught at the brewpub. Deep dark brown colour, creamy beige head. Aroma of roasetd malts. Malty with lovely flavours of roasetd malt, caramel, chocolate and a shy touch of coffee. Dry finish. Diar (121) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2009
Is extremely dark red, almost black. It has a dark, golden foam. The arome is very strongly roasted and a bit sour. Same goes for taste, its very nicely roasted with lotf of licorice. Decent palate and aftertaste like the taste. Dogbrick (12936) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Sample at the Eurostash tasting on 04/30/09: Bottle from the brewpub. The beer pours an amber color with a medium thick off-white head that diminishes slowly. Yeast and vinegar aroma that makes me worried whether this beer survived the trip intact. Flavors of lake water, malt and yeast with a hint of vinegar remaining in the background. The finish is malt and tart fruit that is thankfully short. Overall I want to assume this bottle was infected but who knows. Will have to track it down again someday.

Sampled at Dogbrick’s Eurostash tasting on 4.30.09. Amber/light brown pour with a big tan head. Not a big fan of the aroma on this one. The malt and yeast are there, but it smells like they’re working against each other. Something is just off there. Flavor is yeasty and malty with a slight bit of tartness. This bottle may be off. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2009
on tap at the brewery pours amber, tall off white head. Light sweet tea aroma. Sweet light malt, mild roasted malt and a nutty, bread finish. Moderate carbonation, full bodied. A well rounded dark lager, right in every way. Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2008
