4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Growler from Bierkraft in Schlenkerla glass. Reddish brown with lasting beige head. Very smoky woodsmoke and toasted caramel aroma. Smoky toasted caramel brown sugar with lager grassiness and lingering mild bitterness. Medium body and medium carbo. Very clean and very smoky, but still the toasted caramel of the malts and the hop bitterness come through beautiful. Ok, I’ve been waiting a couple of years to try this one, and it is awesome. I thought it would be my first 5, but I’m not sure it’s actually better than the marzen, which has less lingering bitterness. I will have to decide whether this or the marzen will be my first 5. Anyhow, I think I need to move to Bamberg.

[2015-03-22] Väriltään tummanruskea, lähes musta. Tiheä vaahto. Tuoksussa savua ja joulukinkkua. Maussa joulukinkkua, savua ja salmiakkia. Sopivasti humalaa, joka tukee keskitäyteläistä runkoa. Hiilihappja melko paljon; hyvä suutuntuma.
