2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted like a typical German dunkel. My only complaint was that it seemed rather flat. Kind of a dull beer - nothing interesting, just drinkable, nothing more.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (from Systembolaget, Mölnvik Gustavsberg). Deep amber, close to copper colour, with a mediumsized off-white to beige head. Aroma is caramel, some quite sugary and ryelike notes along with mild bitterness. Flavour is rye, caramel, some mild toasted notes as well as mild floral notes. OK, but not very inspiring or special.

Draught version tried at the Brewery tap
A Brown beer with little head retention, aroma of caramel. A solid flavour of chocolate malt and caramel with light hopping. The taste does linger but is not a complex one. The bottled version is slightly sweeter but with a pronounced CO2 bite.

50cl, comprata alla Standa di via Cesarea; versa colore bruno con discreta schiuma beige chiara chiara; aroma molto leggero di malto e caffè. Al sapore invece note dolcissime che trascendono il malto, quasi un cioccolato e vaniglia oppure cioccolato e latte (mi ricorda un pochino il nesquik freddo, soprattutto nel finale); è una birra divertente anche se un po’ cheap, che si potrebbe bere a colazione, ma che fa venire voglia di carne alla brace. La dolcezza è un po’ esagerata, ma oggi dopo pranzo ho assaggiato di peggio purtroppo. Corpo molto acquoso, frizzantezza ridotta; discreta :)

Bottle (in NZ), pours a cola-ish brown with a large pillowy white head. Uninspiring grainy malt nose with a touch sweetness. More caramal malt on the palate, with a touch of roastedness. Pleasant enough, but a little sweet for me.

Small bottle from Systembolaget as ’Gösser Dark Beer’. Dense fingerthick lightly tanned head. Clear ruby brown body. Nutty, light roasted malt aroma with a faint whiff of ash. Light malt body. Light to medium sweet with notes of peppery malts and a vague fruitiness. Sparsely hopped. Feels diluted in the mouth. Short, watered down ending.

Dark ruby ale with thin light tan head. Smells of toffee and chocolate with a tinge of spice. Body is thin but good carbonation. Palate is slightly pungent and lingers a little.
