3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 650ml bottle purchased in Hamburg. Almost black with a reddish hue and a big beige-coloured head that laces decently. Nose has dark chocolate roasty malts with subtle coffee and caramel notes. Flavour is mild malty sweetness with a mild grassy hop bitterness. Palate is smooth and medium bodied. A fine Schwarzbier but lacks the smokiness of the best examples of this style.
