3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fine brown color. Noble aspect in their small bubbles of bottle fermented beer. Cereal aroma, a bit sweet. Strange flavor, strong carbonatation, a bit salty and sweet. Watery texture, good body. It raises pleasing a caramel aroma.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Hazy, brown beer with a huge, diminishing white head. Sweet caramel, fruitiness and some coffee-notes on the nose. Weak flavor with some caramel. Medium body with some fizzyness. As most Erdinger beers, quite boring. (060413)

This stuff has to be poured into the right glass to get the right head and taste. It’s a lot of work for not much result. Aroma is all malt, cola like. Smooth thoughand although only 5.6%, you get a alcohol bite.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5L Bottle Served in proper Erdinger Glassware - Large creamy off-white head atop a dark chocolatey brown body. Not much aroma, but some maltiness and possibly a little coffee. Medium body with some coffee, caramel, and grain tones with a slight initial sweetness that slowly turns a little bitter/dry for the finish. No long-lasting aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Much bulky and creamy head, optimal adhesion and duration. Much dark brown color, nearly black one. Optimal fizz and liveliness. Not much decided scent... notes of torrefy malt, singes cereals and liquorice. Slightly pungent and a lot mellow taste. Notes of smoke, fumigation and burned wood; much determined and overbearing bitter; elevated alcoholic tone. Bitter and of medium persistence final.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Meget mørk weizenbeer. Er for mørk af en dunkelweizen til min smag.
Jeg forventede en sød og rund øl, men den var for kraftig
