3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark coppery colored with medium sized light brown head. Sweet caramelly and chocolaty aroma with fine hops and some grainy earthy tone. Medium bodied, somehow sticky palate. Flavor is also sweet with chocolate, still some yeasty-flowery-vegetably note here, it actually fits here well. That flavor lasts in drying aftertaste. Good beer.

Bottle, 5% as Krug-Bräu Lager. Very weak spicy aroma. Clear brown colour. Nice, frothy tan head. The flavour is slightly malty, but does not taste very "dark", not sweet or roasted, that is. Slightly buttery aftertaste, turning weakly smoked after a while. Watery mouthfeel and thin flavour. High carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (Bayerische Anstich) at Akkurat, Stockholm. Nut brown, firm creamy head. Evident coffee aroma. Dryish and solidly malty with seemless capuccino flavour. All flavours seem to arise from roasty malt,yet it’scomplex and laidback at the same time. Finishes with medium bitterness. A top effort!
