Deep brown with a tan, thin, lasting, frothy head. Smells of dark malt like a schwartzbier, nut, caramel and raisin. Medium frothy oily body. Tastes of sweet caramel malt but a bit subdued under the dark malt, raisin and soft bitter roast finish. Herbal hops. Nice and easy to drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, 0.50l, shared with Yuri. Clear almost black color with medium frothy off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, chocolate and herbal hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel, follows by roasted malt, coffee and chocolate, while finish is average bitter. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Low ABV, but still pretty decent flavoured...

pours a nice head and body that is on the slightly darker side for a black lager. kind of cloudy and not totally filtered.
aroma is of grain, very slight chocolate and maybe even something sweet like bubble gum, but very faint.
taste is quite watery (not surprising given the alcohol content), which is disappointing. this ends very dry with only a small amount of maltiness, almost no hops and almost no roast. just a little bit of sweetness and black bread flavor.
i’d drink again, but only really for refreshment on a hot day.
