2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared on the train from Nuremberg to Bamberg during the Bamberg Jolly. Pours clear brown with a foamy tan head. Very simple, with light toast, lots of paper, faint cocoa. Light bodied with average carbonation. Creamy texture. Bland bready character in the finish. Meh, just very basic overall.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Enjoying a very dark reddish brown beer tangential to almost black. It has a nice, albeit short, light brown foam. Aroma is greatly influenced by hard roasted malt, and almost no other flavorings to track. However suggests to some hop. It taste much of malt.
