Bottle, bought @ Bierkompass.de
[drunk to congratulate the German victory, not to celebrate it]
Pour is clear, coppery amber with a firm, stayin, creamy off-white head. Good looks. Sweet, malty aroma, light caramel, some grassy and flowery hops. High carbonation, nice creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour as good toasted caramel, light milky chocolate, some sweetness and a good, lingering, flowery bitterness in the long aftertaste. Good dunkel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 50cl. Ordered from www.bierkompass.de. It pours a beautiful clear amber beer with an average-sized, nicely lacing bubbly beige head. Inviting malt accented aroma which is reminiscent of walnuts, lime, orange, figs, almonds, paprika, tobacco, caramel and leafy hops. Nice balance. Very faintly smoky. Beech wood sneaking in. Subtle carbonation. Medium bodied. Good bitterness showing up. Light acidity on the swallow. Long finish where figs, almonds, homemade caramel and raisin come to mind. Delicious, complex and with plenty of character.
