3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours a ruby copper colour with a white head. Aroma of bread, nuts, red berries, mild sweetness and chocolate. Rather rich flavour of strong toasted malts, red berries, nuts, chocolate and mild bitterness. Medium bodied, a bit rough mouthfeel and a dry, malty, bitter finish. Overall a surprisingly rich dunkel.

Bottle. Thanks pivnizub. Dark amber, brown head. Nice honeyish sweet roasted nose - like chocolate roasted nots, light hop aromatics. Chocolate and roast on the forefront, sweet but not cloying, nice subdued hop balance. Medium body, sparkly mouthfeel. Flowery retronasal. Nice - I seem to have gotten one of the good bottles :-)

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A chocolate flavoured yet quite light beer. Pleasant enough and quite drinkable though with little character or interest. I’d have it again and enjoy it, but I wouldn’t suggest someone try it.
