3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from Ammersin 5 Vienna, shared at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting.
Dark brown, almost black body, with a medium, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of coffee, smoke, liquorice, cocoa.
Taste follows this, with some more dark fruits.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes roasty, dry, coffee, cocoa, liquorice.
Very nice, although I was hoping for a bit more. Very straight, not to say minimalistic. Well balanced, with great coffee, cocoa and some smoke notes. I’m just missing something.

500 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served cold in a tulip glass. Deep brown black with a decent mocha head. Huge dark chocolate, black coffee, molasses bordering on licorice, dark, rich, inviting. Medium-full body with fairly full carbonation and a powdery feeling. Quite dark, big dark chocolate, black coffee, slightly nutty, a bit peppery and boozy, leafy, herbal, resinous hops, alcohol is nicely integrated; dry with fairly big bitterness and a long, mouth-coating dark malt finish. Fundamentally good.
