Beautiful and promissing dark brown color Unfortunately the taste doesn’t match the expectations. A good one but no big deal for a dark lager. I think it could be a lot better if it had a more bitter finish. Worth a try though, it’s a good beer. I just expected more!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a red hue and a medium beige head with decent retention. Coffee, chocolate and some mild fruity notes on the nose. More coffee and chocolate tones in the flavour with roasted malts. A dry, short bitter finish, though crisp with light carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel and a lingering chocolate aftertaste.
