3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2015 Re-rate: Bottled somewhere in Davos. A lot better than previously. Roasted malts, still quite some bitterness. Ok Dunkel. Previous rating: Bottled from some supermarket in Switserland, BB 07-11-2008. Very dark brown coloured, initially large light brown head. Malty and somewhat sour nose. Flavour of malts and liquorice, sour at first but more bitter in finish. Unbalanced and unpleasant brew.

300 mL pour on tap at Buddy’s Pub in Interlaken. Paid 4 Franks. Transparent brown pour with a small, khaki colored head. Not much aroma, just lightly sweet. Flavor was simple. Lightly sweet malt and grain with a slight hint of burnt malt. Very easy to drink, but very also a very simple beer.
