This is a very dark Zwickl that is very dry and herbal. An interesting beer where my tongue just could not get used to the taste in the span of one bottl ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 Bottle. Pours reddish brown, matt and hazy, with residuals floating around and a full rocky white head. Light metal smell. Malty aroma, some roasted notes, hints of plum and some licorice. Sweet taste, medium bitter finish. Body is light with high carbonation. Flavor is weak and not really distinguishable, some toffee, some grain but not much. Leaves a light bitter dry aftertaste.
