2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown, almost black with a small off white head that fades almost completely. Little to no carbonation. Aroma almost not existing, just a faint sweetness and malts. Taste is a bit sweet which turns into bitterness all over, bit sour too. Is this spoilt or how it should taste?

Bottle shared with bartlebier, thanks!
Dark brown, little but stable head. The aroma reminds on dark chocolate, coffee, nuts with notes of yeast. Tastes a bit smokey with an intensive dark maltiness and some red fruits and plums. Full body, creamy texture.

Dunkler, wässrig malziger Antrunk. Minimal rauchig, dann röstiger werdend. Wenig süß, etwas bitter. Gelungene Mischung, die aber insgesamt intensiver sein könnte. 8/9/8/8/9/8
