Got a 4,7% alcohol version. Dark brown color. Malty and light roasty aromas. Medium sweet taste and light bitterness from the roast. Lanchester (196) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours a deep reddish brown with a quickly dissipating light tan head. Aroma of grains and roasted malts, ’Sugar Crisp’ cereal comes to mind, leading me to believe this will be overly sweet. Sugary malt profile dominates the flavor, some of the roasted character peeks through on occasion but is surely lacking. Nondescript finish, and the beer is thin and watery on the palate to its detriment. Drinkable, but disappointing. Kavu (5038) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2011
Pours quite dark brown with a low head. Aroma is roasted malts, well balanced flavor is roasted malts with a hint of caramel. Pretty ordinary dunkel, quite decent. czar (9338) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
pours dark copper, almost brown, with a nice medium-dark beige rind, some retention. aroma are caramel and roasted malts. taste has a cloying caramel finale. big on the carbonation, light body. light to medium grassy hops. overall, talk to the drain. crossovert (13744) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
500ml green bottle with gold foil.
It pours a brownish reddish cola color with a foamy tan head that leaves no lacing.
The smell is pretty good, it is caramally with some cocoa, not unlike a English Dark Mild. This one however is infused with a little kiss of noble hops that lend a slight fruitiness.
The flavor is surprisingly sweet for the abv. After the initial burst of sweetness it mellows out with a nice bit of bitterness and some dark bread flavors. The sweetness is primarily caramel and cocoa.
It is drinkable to a point, it could be sessionable but it is a bit sweet.

500 ml green bottle purchased at the Centropolise SAQ (Laval, Quebec), last January 2011. Hazelnut brown, little head. Aroma of very caramelized malt little roasted. Malted barley taste of poor quality, a little sweet, aftertaste of bitter vegetables. It’s written on the label that was once the best beer in the world, hard to believe!

Bottle. Cola brown body, almost no head. Aroma is lightly malty and sweet. Taste is sweet and caramelly without any bitterness. In fact, they have added saccharin (E954) to it. Why? BeerBaboon (2119) - FINLAND - FEB 7, 2011
Tumma Samson, yksi lukuisista Suomeen raijattavista Tšekkioluista, on väriltään kutakuinkin Coca Colaa ja omaa melko niukasti beigeä vaahtoa. Sen tuoksussa on makeata mallasta, leipää ja hieman paahteisuutta. Maultaan se on hyvin makea, jopa siirappinen. Siirappisuudesta huolimatta olut on ohutta. Jotakin makeutusainetta tässä tuntuu olevan, eikä se ole ollenkaan hyvä juttu. Maussa on myös hieman paahtunutta mallasta. Melkoista lirua. Cuso (8934) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 23, 2011
