2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Malty smell, dark appearance with an off white head. The taste is very strange; mostly malty, very grainy and bready. Not that complex a beer either with a thin mouthfeel and little aftertaste but noticeably dry with low hop presence. Not very good but drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a good dark German beer. It has a nice head and a deep color. The malt taste is deep and somewhat complex, showing care with the caramelizing process. Hops are very light. The malt dominates the hops taste. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark brown and thick white head. The aroma is like tin. Very much a metal smell. However the taste is pretty good. Tastes strong at first and finishes really smooth. This beer was a lot better than I thought it would be. It’s a little malty in the beginning and finishes so smooth. Decent beer.

Bottle thanks to sarkynortherner. Dark black colour with thin tan head ok lacing. Aroma is weak roasted malts + metal. Taste is slight roasted malts light bitter watery finish. Thin to medium body medium carbonation. This was ok easy to drink but nothing to get excited about.
