3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a friend’s cellar. Deep golden-brown, somewhat thin head. Rye in the nose, and I think some chocolate. Chocolate and coffee are faint in flavor, which is dominated by rye, slightly dry with healthy bitterness to balance out mild sweetness. Dark wheaty, malty finish. Like many dark German beers, I want more oomph from this one, but still a nice beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slightly hoppy, bitter. Very very watery and thin mouth feel like said earlier, doesn’t really taste much. So far I’m quite disappointed with german winter beers, since they seem to be more light than regular beers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing-top bottle: Dark amber coloured, thin fluffy off-white head, slowly diminishing; faint malty nose with a tinge of molasses and alcohol; shy sweet-malty start, quite dry malty body; finishes dry with a malty-veggy aftertaste and a very shy bitterness. Drinkable, not great........;too "tasteless"!
