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 from Finkenkrug, Duisburg
Black color with generous beige head. The aroma is mild, with roasted malt and dark bread, pumpernickel. The body is lean and the mouthfeel smooth; nice roasted malt flavor, dark caramel, more dry than sweet, with accents of breadcrust; correct bitterness; it has a certain dynamicity.
Excellent dark beer, fresh to drink.
