2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper brown with thin light beige head, that soon disappears leaving no laces.
Aroma.. quite intense sweet roasted malts, bread
Taste is quite interesting sweet (bit too much) with pleasant hoppy bitter tones.
Overall.. drinkable beer from time to time, thou something lacks to buy it in regular terms.

Organic dark beer. Sweet classic dark mild ale. The taste is much lighter than the 5.5 which is given in degrees. I would highly recommend

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 31/08/12. An almost black coloured beer with no head. Pretty damn sweet. Lots of fruit in the nose with tons of caramel in the mouth. Bready yeasty notes too. A little fossil fuel. Oversweet and fruity and tasting stronger than it is. Not a style of beer I dislike.

Glass bottle. Aroma weak, but a little yeast is felt. Carbonation is quite lively, taste is weak, but u can feel that dunkel taste (not a lover). Some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Bottle from Baltic Branch Dover. Clear brown, medium head. Roasty aroma. Medium-bodied with lots of malt and an incredibly delicious roasted malt character. Roasted malt dominates, there are also hints of dark chocolate and nuts. Delicious stuff!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Wisla, Granby St, Leicester. Pours a sandy brown, with fading froth top. Smells sweetly malty. Not massively tasty. Toffee, breakfast cereal, some nuttiness, perhaps a smidge of spanner. Average verging on poor. Lacks even the burn to go with it’s strength.

500ml bottle from a grocery on the Narborough Rd. Clear chestnut with a flat, receding beige collar. Complex, deeply malty, brown-sugared aroma absolutely begging a sip; proper NE English brown ale, Curly Wurly, HP sauce on plums/nectarines. Never tried either. Doesn’t disappoint flavour-wise; soggy fig, milk chocolate-coated caramel, molasses, just a wisp of finishing smoke, cocktail cherry. Then an Everton mint sucked to the centre; mint freshness on the tongue. Enjoyed every sip. Lovely rounded dunkel with a wealth of sweet malty flavours as equally at home in Germany or England as Latvia.
