Bottle. Charcoal chocolate malt aroma. Dark black with huge tan head. Slight sweet-tart chocolate malt flavor. Body on the light side. Not spectacular but far ahead of most South American beers.
bomber @ Liquor Barn / Danville KY --- Near opaque dark brown, fluffy beige head that is slow to drop, a few lace dots. This bottle is well past its prime, as it includes a little sulfer in the dark malt. Hard to rate, can’t be what the brewer intended. In a perfect world, I’d give this a pass, but the brewer and distributor are happy to take my $10 to purchase it, so it’s fair game. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. The look is black in color, tan colored head, and dark. The smell is burnt, roast, toast, raisins, and coffee. The taste is roasty, malts, fruits, sweet, and ok. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at my friends place before a buddy’s 30th b-day celebration. Interesting bottle on this one. Appearance is moderately thick with a rich white head that laces. Aroma of dry chocolate. Taste is dry, mostly chocolate bit of nitrogen. Decent stuff. dfinney23 (3362) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2013
The amazingly thick and creamy head is by far the best thing about this beer, unfortunately. Nothing bad but the muted chocolate and thin body just don’t cut it in the competitive stout world. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Light earthy coffee and chocolate malt aroma Near black with a hugel creamy tan head. Earthy/peaty coffee malt flavor, like a low acid Indonesian coffee. Medium body.

Bottle (330 mL), poured into a glass stein with a dark brown color and a very small but persistent tan head... aroma is mostly roast, with some hints of yeast and coffee.
Taste is rather acidic, with a very light body and light notes of coffee and yeast.
Overall, I think this is a mostly average beer, definitely nothing stands out but it’s not bad either; was good with strong cheeses, went down easily and I’d have it again, but nothing to die for.
Also, considering it’s cheaper than most microbrews around here, it’s a good choice for large gatherings as it’s still lightyears above any industrial beer. Ungstrup (37885) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2009
Bottled. A brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt as well as lighter notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet with a light acidic edge and notes of roasted malt and chocolate. Thanks omhper for sharing. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2009
0.33 l bottle, thanks ompher! Dark brown color. Sweetish, coffeish, yeasty, raisiny, plummy and berryish aroma with some acidic oud bruin vibes. Coffeish, berryish, yeasty and acidic flavor with raspberry and cherry. Perhaps acidity is not indented but it kind of fits here. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of omhper. Hazy orangey brown with an off-white head. Lightly nutty, roasted aroma. Medium body, a little roasted and ashy malt notes but otherwise completely dominated by a distinct and unfortunate acidity. Sour and infected all through the finish. 200908
