Draught at the brewpub. Roasted, sweet, quite hoppy aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is quite roasted, stoutlike. But also sweet, making it resemblant of salt liquorice. High carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Jet-black beer with dark tan head, leaving textbook lace. Nutty, very stout like, this smells like a (bottom fermented) stout! Roasted barley. Dry, fully roasted, concentrated coffee taste, with roasted barley (malt). Full bodied, with a correction by the restsugar - fine roasted malt filling in. Quite carbonated too. This is a stout!! Whatever they call it themselves.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Translucent mahogany in color with a copper-amber accent when put to light, and a pillowy, creamy and fluffy tan head with admirable retention. Sweet caramel and chocolate grahams grace the nose. Some spicy accents mix with copper kisses. Cleanly cotton aromatically interweaves through burlap sacks while cedar and maple further the force. Sweet, rich and flavorful direction. Chocolate-rye sweetbread shares a plate with creamy maple nut fudge and heavenly liquefied chocolate-covered toffee cubes. Vibrant caramel aristocracy with a spicy ABV-indicating pincer on the center of the tongue’s tip. Reserved carbonation helps to elicit a fine palate bock smack, pressing the tongue to the roof of the mouth to extract more flavorful juice. Whole mouth libation with confectionary cocoa and a touch of burnt rye flickering at the tonsils in the finish. Alcohol appetency gives a little zing and the hops spice it up as well, winding down with a gingerly attenuated pool of cocoa butter. A lovely start to my Bavarian holiday.

A hazy dark amber beer with no head. The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of caramel. The flavor is also very sweet with notes of alcohol, wood, and caramel, as well as hints of burnt malt.
