1.0 l bottle. Reddish brown color with small head. Sweetish, nutty, leathery and somewhat dull aroma. Dry nutty flavor with some weird plastic off flavor. This bottle was picked week ago from the brewery but seems to be insipid, I hope to rerate this in future.

A Mes rate: Gravity serving at Zeitgeist.
Mid brown with a slight beige head. Sweet German malt aroma with a lot of caramel and toffee. Slight tobacco and wheat with a tiny lick of hops. Flavour is very wheaty with some tobacco again. Slight roasty notes, lovely malt and an excellent balancing bitterness in the finish. Smooth and drinkable.

Couleur noire foncée, mousse beige pale. Arômes de malt hautement torréfiés apportant un côté de viande fumée. Saveurs de caramel, de mélasse et de malt grillé se terminant sur une touche de fumée. Une touche de houblon apporte une fraîcheur de type menthol. Étalement court, les arômes laissaient entrevoir un breuvage plus complexe. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, faible carbonatation.
