500 ml bottle in Germany thanks to shrubber85. Pours a very dark red, almost black with a thick tan head that lasts. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and some smoke. Taste is very smooth throughout with a mild roastiness and hints of chocolate in the malt. Palate is a creamy texture with a well balanced finish. I enjoyed this one. kingstoni (2088) - FINLAND - JUN 30, 2012

Bottle sample courtesy of The Losh. Very dark oily pour lets in some light creating an ambery hue. Has a moderate beige cap. The nose is very roasty, and hints at coffee and vanilla, with some grassy hops. Sweet, but fairly balanced by floral bittering hops. Medium light body,Long bitter finish with musty like black coffee in the end. A good effort from this brewer. fugitive (2005) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 5, 2010

Dark brown body with massive head. The brewery is known Tetrahop isoextract to maintain a good head. Aroma is clean and malty, ittle bit sour. I can feel the oxidation in the taste, checking the bottle the beer is 10 days before end of the warranty, so should be still drinkable. Candy sweetness with sour and hoppy after-taste. Smooth body. I’m looking forward to the ontap version.
