pivnizub (8770) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2007
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.....

MoritzF (8456) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2007
(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.
