3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colour with a light brown, fine and firm head. Extremely strong burnt chocolate aroma. Dominating black chocolate taste, with a strong, disturbing roast note. The taste is quite sour, which becomes a bit annoying when it comes to the finish. A very special beer.

Bügelflasche: Very deep amber, mid-sized fluffy tanned head, quite stable, leaving rings on the glass, light to moderate bitter-sourish roasty and chocolatey nose with a touch of molasses; not too dry bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium bodied; slightly lingering, dryish bitter-toasty finish with a touch of cacao powder. Chapeau, exellent new brewery…

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(swing top bottle, purchased at the brewery) Dark brown, almost black coloured hue with a beige and short foamy layer. Roasty malty aroma with notes of dark chocolate and mocha. Moderately roasty bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Roasty malt-character with burnt notes, chocolate and coffee; dry and roasty bitter finish with balanced notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Considering the style I´d vote for Stout instead of Sweet Stout. Likeable and uncommon brew from Lower Franconia. 11.VIII.12
