COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The nose will enjoy pepper and gentle roasting aromas such as cocoa and bitter chocolate. After a crisp initial taste, the malt releases more gentle avours. The texture is dry. A subtle acid kick from the roasting aromas leads to the nale: toffee, toast and cocoa notes gently linger. Dominantly malty, slim, dry.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Pours clear, red-brown with a moderate, light tan foam head. Dark malt nose, light caramel, perhaps even some cocoa. Light roast in the nose! (Haven’t encountered much roast in Berlin.) Very, very nice flavor. Good roasty wholegrain bread, some earthy bitterness, light to medium sweetness, toast, toasty sugars, light burnt wood. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light earthy, roasty finish, mild earthy hops, lingering toast, light cocoa and caramel. One of the best brewpub beers of Berlin.

On tap at Brauhaus Mitte in October. Cloudy amber with a lasting off-white head. Grainy malt aroma with notes of chocolate, toffee and caramel, and a lot of DMS. Sweet grainy flavour with caramel. Very brewpub-y

Try the beer sampler at this brewpub, interesting contrasts. The original was by far my favourite of the four that were available. I wish they had a Steinkrug for this, it would have made for an even more pleasureable experience.

Martinus (4496) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2011
Clear dark brown cola colour, cream colour head. Malty, slightly sweet aroma, yeast and caramel. Sour malts and roasted tones. Sweet malty flavour, light sour tones, some caramel. Bit thin and slightly sticky. Less roasted tones in the mouth than in the nose. Finishes with light hops.
(Draught @ the Brauhaus - Hackesher Markt location)

EithCubes (5616) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Draught at the Mitte location. Ruby-amber clear body, lacing white head. Lightly bitter and sticky with mild grains, do like the light roast malt coming through but the caramel is a little off. Only very lightly sweet medium body, hops cleanse the palate. Probably has the most depth of their beers.
