Flavour is toasted malts, some ripe sweet fruitiness along with some chocolate and mild caramelly and syrupy notes. Bodied, and not overly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #1012 - March 1st, 2014 - Bottle from Coop - 4.7% - bought this because some guy orders 4 cases from me routinely - had to give it a whirl. Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is mild coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable for a light, roasty lager.

caramel, bread, grass, raisin, red, brown, clear, minimal head, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter
Dark ruby pour with tan head. Foam disappears quickly. Biscuity sweet aroma with light grassy hop. Caramel sweet with hints of sourness. No real bitterness. Carbonation is very light. Thin, watery body with a slick mouthfeel. Finish is quite sweet with no bitter aftertaste. A very nice beer if you’re not expecting bitterness. I like it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. Dark brown/ruby body, light brown head. Plums, reisins and a hint of roasted malts in the aroma with maybe some caramel. Taste of caramel, dark fruits, minimal roastyness and little bit of floral hops. More like a dunkel for me than a schwarzbier, but I like it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle to weizen glass.
Appearance: Transparent red color with an off white mocha head.
Aroma: Biscuit, cookies, crackers, a bit of caramel/brown sugar. Some spicyness and dark fruit but not much. Slight sour element.
Taste: Sweet biscuit, some slight sour rye bready flavours, elements of dark chocolate. Definitely sweeter than I expected.
Palate: Well rounded, good body though carbonation is on the low side I think.
Overall: Pretty nice beer. Didn’t expect the world but it actually is quite nice.
