3.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 69. This draft brew from the brewery in Germany poured a medium sized foamy head of finely sized off-white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent dark brown colored body. The aroma contained notes of very mild malts. The mouth feel was smooth thick and malty with a mild tingle in the finish. The flavor contained good notes of sweet semi-thick good malts and had a mild kick to it.

Nice chocolate malty aroma and dark color. Flavor matches aroma - a good thick chocolate malt flavor with a balanced hops flavor. A very good dark beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark coke colour with not even a hint of a head. Hoppy mown grass aromas.
Faint slightly sour start and stronger sweet-bitter hoppy middle flavours. Body much lighter than that indicated by the colour. It came highly recommended but seemed lacking in any kind of oomph! Medium bitter dry finish. (Rated 15/5/02:Feucht Bier Garten, Germany)
