3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bügelverschlußflasche: Deep amber coloured, small, but quite stable creamy off-whit head; solid sweet dark-malty nose with coffeeish/roasted traces; moderate to robust sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, softly carbonated; drier bitter and roast-malty finish. A well balanced and tasty Dunkles, that has some relations to a Porter.....

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a thick and slowly lacing, off-white foamy head. Sweet and slightly toasted malt aroma with dried fruits, light notes of caramel and a shy but still present hoppy blend. Light-sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate to soft carbonation. Slightly roasty taste, slightly doughy and caramelly; bitter-sweet, slightly roasted, minimal-fruity finish with light hoppy notes. Okay-ish.

Aroma throws bready malts touch of roast. Taste is similar and very drinkable but however not exciting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice mid-tawny colour.The good off white head looked as if it would hang around for a while, but after my first swig it seemed to give up and died very quickly! The nose is quite rich and malty with more than a hint of spice, there are some nice floral hops at the back ...a big plus point. A fairly full bodied brew with a good malt presence, but well balanced by a distinctive hoppy bitterness, a crackin’ beer. This was bought by my wife (who constantly moans about the amount of beer I drink) at one of those continental markets that appear from time to time in a town near you!!!
