3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The last of my reviews on out of date beers from this brewery. All 3 of their beers (including this one) are 5.2%.
Brown flip-top half litre bottle should have been drank before 20th Aug 2007, it was drunk today, 12th Sept 2007.
Poured into my old half litre Schultheiss glass from Berlin.
Great ruby red colour, the huge head of biege bubbles was so large I couldn’t get all the beer into my glass. The beer was not cloudy by any means but it wasn’t crystal clear either.
The aroma was of half burnt chocolate malts and yeast.
It tastes like an Dusseldorfer Alt more than a lager to me, the label gives no hint. I like it, whatever the true style is. The burntness in the aroma isn’t in the taste, dry caramel without the sweetness is what I pick up.
The mouthfeel is good, the beer and mouth goes dry, then more dry as you make your body wait for the next mouthful.
A very nice beer, this little brewery will be getting another visit from me.

Draught: Poured a reddish brown with off white head. Not very much aroma to be senced. The flavor was tea, bark, and leafy malt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the abbey. Poured nicely but seemed a thin mouthfeel for a dunkel. Hints of chocolate and malt were nice.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Thanks to Matt. Hazed burnt orange coloured pour with a halo of off white head. Aroma is earthy, putrd rotting veg, poo. Tart apples, dark malts, off veg. What the fuck is this? Palate is sharp and highish carbonation. Undrinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with some sparse hoppy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with roasty and sweetish touches of caramel malt and a hint of fruit. Mildly bitter finish. Decent.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Toffee color. Big tan/khaki head with a bit of lacing as it slowly dies down. Huge acetic, sour aroma. And nail polish and malt. That sourness comes through slightly in the mouth as well. So much so that it overpowers the hint of malt that is in there. Not good. Can’t finish this one unfortunately.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark malty aroma; some tootsie roll like chewy chocolate. Deep brown color with soft off-white head. Overall light flavor with a touch of roastiness from the dark malt, very clean almost steril (thanks again reinheitsgebot).
Notes: Bottle found at one of the local schnapps stores in Berkastel-Kues
