3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home poured into nosing glass. Pours pitch black with thick beige to brown head. Nose of roasted malts coffee and liquorice. Taste is quite bitter for a Stout, intense residual sweetnes, sticky creamy mouthfeel. Plums, raisins and dryed fruit in General. I like it while I find the sweetnes a bit out of bounce...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Faint nose of boozy burnt malts, but really low. Strong taste though, some sweetness, healthy bitterness, still boozy and powerful. Charming palate, strong nuts and booze again. But all that booze actually works really well and is not off at all. Nice, but not overwhelming.

Recht süßer, dennoch halbwegs runder Malzantrunk. Brotig-süßer Mittelteil, Kakaonoten, etwas Kaffee. Unsüffig, dafür vollmundig und lecker. 8/10/7/10/10/9
