3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown beer with brownish quickly disappearing head. Interesting idea to brew a Porter with rye and Pumpernickel. The dark bread taste is easily noticable with roasted malts and some nuts in the finish. However I find some punch is missing. Not enough intensity and body.

Bottle, 5.6%. Weak bready and salty aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour is quite roasted with a decent barley bitterness and a nicely dusty finish. Sort of like a Schwarzbier.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with airy beige head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with hints of hops and touches of yeast. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of wholemeal bread and mild touches of caramel malt. Roasty and estery afteraste. Thin body - if this had been avoided, the beer would be so much better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit weird and unbalanced. Yet tasty and ok.
Dark color with a tan head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Decent body and an ok carbonation. Bready like pumpernickel, some toffee, some spices and mild roasted.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown from the bottle. The head is more fizzy than creamy and fades relatively quick. The beer has a fairly high level of carbonation. A sweet and bready aroma greets the nose, really more like Kuchen with lots of brown sugar than pumpernickel. A hint of dark fruit lingers in the background. Quite appealing actually. The beer starts off rich and lightly chocolate sweet before proceeding to a dry and bitter finish. The pumpernickel taste does come through, especially when you burp. Generally an agreeable brew, especially in taste and smell, but the palate seemed fizzy, oily, and yet still too thin all at the same time. Still liked this one though.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo ma ladna piane bezowej barwy. Piwo ciemno brazowe z bordowym odcieniem, troche metnosci. Zapach lukrecji i zrumienionej skorki od chleba. W smaku slodowe, slodko karmelowe. Troche tego pumpernickela sie wyczuwa zwlaszcza w przelyku po przelknieciu i odczekaniu chwilke. Dodatkowo lukrecja i kukulki. Zytniowe akcenty takze sa na sam koniec. Ciekawe piwo choc za slodkie jak dla mnie, zabraklo mi tu palonego slodu itp akcentom
