3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Weisses Brauhaus, Munchen, Germany, 25-01-08 but called Brau Girgl Dunkel Dark brown with an off-white clingy head, actually on reflection more mid to dark brown in colour. Nutty tasting some hazelnut’s, soft mouthfeel, bitterness sits towards the back along with a touch of sourness. Quite hard to try this after the Eisbock but still I found this a very nice beer.
