3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark beige head over deep black beer. Very roasted/burnt; fatty roasts, and chocolat, suggesting bitter and sweet. Bitter chocolate³, like one of those archi-expensive bars of ultra-% chocolate. Bit of cigarette ash retronasal. Very slick, alcoholwarming, and well-bodied. All in all, a bit undimensional, neutral.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s pitch-black with a brown, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee, licorice and chocolate. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, overripe fruit and a touch of vanilla. The finish is dry and slightly bitter. It’s very harmonic, well-balanced and nice!

from erzbierschof.ch - pours a black beer under a poor beige foam left; slightly roasted notes of black chocolate with a fair presence of vanilla; full-bodied and pretty sweet; a gentle bitterness and a long chocolatey and vanilla finish - balanced and very nice

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle. Almost black with brownish foam that didn’t stay that long. First sip was a vanilla explosion in my mouth, but after a few sips the alcohol was a bit over powering. Hints of licorice and spirits. This beer had probably earned on being a few % less strong. The general flavour, however, was really good, but not excellent.
