3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500ml bottle on 2/8/2011. Pours an extremely dark amber with big creamy head. Has a pleasant malty aroma, with a touch of chocolate. There’s quite a bit going on flavour wise - a big dollop of roasted malt, chocolate, a bit of coffee, some smokiness and a firm bitterness. A very enjoyable dark beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good dark colour. Aroma has some light roast but also spicy hop and a slight caramel, burnt caramel note. The mouthfeel is medium, more full than the regular pilsner as you would expect. There is a good malt flavour with a light roast edge that makes it interesting. Overall I quite enjoyed this beer and great euro dark lager.
