4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at First German Ratebeer gathering at Idar Oberstein courtesy of Travlr. Prune/chocolate malt and astringent alcohol aroma. Dark brown color with large head. Sweet prune/brown sugar malt and astringent/bitter alcohol finish. Nicely made - but probably not the best idea to have this towards the end of an epic session.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoyed on 3/12/11 in a Pint glass. Pure black, dark amber lights on sides. Foam dense, coffe&milk color neither much creamy nor persistent as expected. No lacing shown. Complex aroma, toasted notes & dry nuts. Intense toasted malt & cocoa hints hidden by dry bitterness & excesive carbonation. Little fat in mouth. I felt quite dissapointed in the overall, ´cause if a Brw knows how to perform a perfect Russian... for sure De Molen does, unfortunately not in Mooi case.
