4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was WOW, malty and chocolately with a strong depth of character and a nutty and toasty Munich malt presence. The aroma had a light bit of spicy hop nature and even a light smoky phenolic. Complex and interesting! The beer poured into the glass crystal clear amber brown with a beige/tan well lasting head which rose tall and fell very slowly to lace the glass. The flavor was nicely malty with more toasty and nutty Munich malt characteristics and a lightly spicy hop character with decent bittering which kept the caramel of the malt in check. The flavor contained a light bit of that same smoky phenolic which added depth to the beer. The finish was dry with lasting flavors lingering into the aftertaste. The body was medium with a moderate level of carbonation and an almost creamy nature on the palate. This one is a winner folks, getcha some! 12 ounce green bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2009 Comprata stamattina a 0.79€ alla Dico e subito provata a pranzo.E tenuto conto che giusto accanto,nello stesso scaffale c’era la Ichnusa prezzata a 1.50€ ed una lager della Damm,la Gold Star Premium,ad 1€ credo proprio di aver scelto la meglio che il supermercato offriva.
Colore marrone scuro con discreta schiuma beige chiara,aroma di malto tostato,caffè e sentori di caramello.Sapore dolce,sembra cioccolato o forse caffèlatte però piacevole.Nel complesso una discreta birra.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle. Skunky aroma. Dark beer. Clear brown color. No foam and low carbonation. This is a very different mixture than what I’m used to. Skunky taste/dark beer. I thought it was interesting but not really for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong caramel taste. Sweet and fizzy as it goes over the tongue, almost like a Coke. A pleasant complement to food, such as smoked meats or salty peanuts.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, 50cl. Dark red color, good head. Strong aroma of malt, nicely roasted. Flavor was the same at the beginning, but later some odd taste of chalk - almost paraffin-like - became too annoying. The taste was not quite what I’ve expected from the great looks of this beer.

Had at Gurtel Brau in vienna on 7/1. Pours dark aramel colore with a smallish white head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, and cocoa. Flavor is sweet, but not sickly sweet. Very drinkable, if unexciting, beer.

Nothing but a slightly malty German dark beer. Refreshing, medium bodied with a watery finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark body, with a light brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving a fair lace. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel. Medium sweet taste, notes of caramel. Pretty thin, average carbonation, watery texture. Pretty nice.
