3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Is red, deep color, slight haze and tan head. Nice sweetish malt aroma is great bread crust with raisins and dates. The palate is slightly thin but that just makes it quaffable and juicy. Great bread crust flavors, also with dried fruits. Really tasty well-made beer.

Marvellous dark amber color; generous creamy head. Good malt and caramel aroma, some cereals. The flavor is less interesting, there is some caramel, but in the end it turns a bit metallic. Correct bitterness. Good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a medium-sized light-beige foamy head. Sweet, dark and roasted malt aroma, almost Bock-like with caramel and liquorice, accompanied by very subtle notes of dried fruits. Bitter-sweet flavour with slightly doughy edges, medium to light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Robust roast-malty taste, fairly complex with caramel, liquorice and hints of chocolate; moderately dry and bitter finish, derived from roasted malt and bitter hops. Pleasant, not too sweet and almost complex Dunkel with Märzen strength.
