3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, at home with renffisch, 25th June 2008. Thanks babe :) Dark brown with a reddish tint. Great aroma of molasses, caramel and smokiness. The flavour is similar, with malty notes coming through. Quite thin but the flavour stays in the mouth. A nice, highly drinkable dark beer.

bottle i brought for ethereal from austria. pumpkin seed beer, funny idea. thankfully it doesn’t taste of it at all. there is a hint in the nose mingling with coffe, leather and a claer leathery malt nose. Dark reddish brown in colour with a thin tan rim. Smooth carbonation, lovely and light beer. Notes of malty cereals, milk chocolate and dried fruits. surprisingly light and easy drinking.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Aroma of chocolate, quite weak though. Dark brown, small beige head. Taste somthing... a bit dirty. Not too good. My girlfriend claims the finish is close to pumpkin seeds, but I wouldn’t know.

330ml bottle, shared with Tranquility - thanks!
More a schwartze or a dunkel than any other style. Jet black in our lighting conditions, with a small beige head. Smooth chocolatey aroma. Strong caramelly malt taste, both richly roasted and fairly burnt, but also a lighter maltiness too. Slightly winey, and some dark fruits, fleshy raisins or other berries. Some hints of juniper berries too. Very pleasant.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
medium-bodied dunkel. It has some strange aspect of the pumpkin but mild roastiness is its major feature, quite balanced, some cocoa is there too,
