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.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2007
Draught at the brauhaus. A brown beer with a big off-white head. The aroma is of caramel malt, light roasted and hops, the taste is of caramel malt, light butter and hops. Medium body with a light sweet dry finish.

Idiosynkrasie (6053) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear, copperish, faint chestnut colour with average to huge, homogeneous, foamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Grainy, grassy, typical Hausbrauerei dark malty aroma with silage touch. Taste is surprisingly different, slightly sweet dark malty, hints of malt lozenge and liquorice. Nothing spectacular anyway.

Marduk (5848) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2016
Tap (Lemke brewpub, Berlin). Clear dark amber color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Dirty, faint coffee, caramel, sweet, sourish and tiny bit of vinegar in aroma. Papery and cookies in aroma. Messy one this is. And bland too. And watery. Naah...

BlackHaddock (5844) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2013
Drank twice during Feb 2013 in the Dickenstr/rail arches outlet while in Berlin. Impressed, a deep reddy brown body with a full and lasting white head of foam. Malts foremost in the aroma and taste: fairly sweet, caramel and molasses rule here. Body depth was fine: could have been thicker and ’meatier’ I suppose, but this is a lager/pilsner based beer and that should be remembered when comparing and rating/reviewing beers. By far the best of the four brews on offer during my visits: I do have a sweet tooth though, so this suited my tastes nicely.

EithCubes (5458) - 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.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Draft at brewpub. Nice copper hue with stable head. Clean balanced malt aroma, has a nicely husky flavor, just the right amount. Something is American about this one, can’t quite place why. Tastes like corporate brewpub fare. Nice for what it is.

thebeertourist (5170) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2009
On tap at the brewpub at the brewpub in Charlottenburg. Hazy copper with a smallish tan head. Citric aroma, infected? Citric flavours balanced by toffee and grassy bitterness. Dry finish. Drinkable.

Tap @ the brewpub. Aroma of slighly roasted malts (coffee, chocolate, caramel), slightly smoked. Hazy, amber coloured with a thin, off-white head. Taste is sweet, roasted malts (caramel, chocolate and some coffee) and some smoke. Bit thin body.
