0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Had one with the new bottle design. This was so terrible I didn’t even finish it. Smelled like nail polish remover, tasted like astringent sweet blerg. Shocking, since some of their other beers are quite good. It did look nice in the glass at least.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Tap House Munich. Almost black. Tan head vanished fast. Aroma is not intensiv, dark malts. Flavours of chocolate, coffee, dark malts and bitterness from hops. Wouldn’t say it has 9,8% alcohol. I was expecting something different, stronger in taste and aroma. Good for beginning adventure with this style.
