3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 09/11/12. A black beer with a whitish head and lace. Sweet toffee and caramel in the nose. A bit of roastiness in the mouth with more sweet caramel. A fairly bog standard Schwarzbier but certainly drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear black body with a small head. Malty and strong aroma of dark caramel and chocolate, and coffee in the back. Strong flavour that follows the aroma, with a tad more emphasis on the coffee. Light sweet and moderate bitter taste. Thin, light-bodied and watery on the palate, moderate carbonation. Another schwarzbier that fails to impress me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours deep brown with a frothy beige head wich is very stable. The aroma is a mixture of bready, flowery, fruity & plastic notes. Special. Light to medium body. Dry bready taste with light bitterness. A proper amount of hops in ending. It is not obligatory a real highlight but I’ll definitely remember this one.
