imdownthepub (14209) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2008
Bottled, 330ml with pull ring cap. From Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Black, red hue, explosive brown head. Sweet and fruity dunkel, a little powdery in texture, but nicely set up with a blackcurrant, loganberry type flavour and a slightly cloying sweetness. Some carbonation, but not intrusive, a little chocolate, dark malt. Reasonably straight forward, uncomplicated beer.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Clear very dark amber with a large frothy light brown head. Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and caramel, quite sweet too. Oily feel in the mouth, more chocolate and caramel come through the sweet body. The beer also has a late fruity kick to it, with blueberry and wildfruits in the finish. Interesting and enjoyable.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2006
330 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black, with a deep ruby hue. Melanoidan round malty aroma. Dark sweet roasted, but at the same time, soft, malts. Medium-bodied. Some carbonation that sticks to the tongue. Soft and lightly souris mouthfeel. Gentle bitterness. Easy-drinking and not particularly complex, perhaps for other than the mentioned sourness.

harrisoni (17996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2006
Bottle. Black beer with ruby edges and dark beige head. Some very nice velvety molasses, coffee and charcoal on aroma with some dark toffee too. Fullish in mouth, with more coffee/toffee. Finish is dryish. Not too sweet and just a feeling of juicy velvet. Nice beer.
