4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, picked up at rewe in steglitz. Looks just like a dubbel, a rich shade of very dark brown ith a thin beige head; curious aroma of walnut skin, sour cherry and almond; loads of flavour - burning rubber, olive brine, sherbet, brown sugar, melt-in-the-mouth texture. Original and quite sophisticated

Bottle. Pours in black body with medium tan head. Aroma is high caramel, little bit buttery, nutty, almost like nutella. Taste has high nutty sweetness, really nutty, I can feel the almonds, low to medium earthy bitterness. Body is full, high carbonation. I love the really soft nutty character in there.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a very dark cola brown. It looks black sitting next to me in its dimpled mug, but there’s brown at the edges, and you can see some color throughout with the help of direct light. The head rises with a rocky puff of light khaki bubbles but falls away pretty quickly, leaving behind a decent coating of lace. Mild milk chocolate sweetness in the aroma. A little bit of treacle, molasses, brown sugar. Maybe a little bit of smoke and roast. Cocoa. Light vegetal note. Taste has more of that milk chocolate flavor. Fairly sweet. Tastes like chocolate shot through with sugar crystals. Mild smoke, roast and vegetal hops in the finish. Mild coffee. A little of bit of nutty malt. A little muddy. Mouthfeel has some effervescence but it’s pretty smooth. Fairly light for a sweet 7.2% abv beer, but there’s some body to it. Interesting beer. It’s essentially a strong schwarzbier. Gets a bit sweet and chocolatey without enough depth to it. Still, it’s enjoyable enough, and the name and label art are fantastic.
