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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
the aroma is very light caramel... the taste is rather rough, with notes of caramel and burnt malt and shades of coffee, bitter chocolate, toffee and dark fruits... sweet and bitter aftertaste... good beer, but too diaphanous for schwarzbier...
