2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Coarse light beige head. Acidic dark roasted malt aroma. The flavour is much the same with acidic dark malts. Hints of toffe. Reminds me a little of a thin imperial stout. Not particularly good though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark body with a thick brown head. The aroma is smokey, with coffee and chocolate and butterscotch. The taste is full and very long. Oily and foamy texture. I love the coffee tones rising in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle, brought to me by my parents - Dankeschön! Clear deep dark black colour, dense and creamy brownish-beige head. Looks like oil floating into my glass. Deliciously malty nose. Full-bodied, flavours of malt, roasetd malt, coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa powder, combined with a shy fruityness of dark dried fruits, raisins, prunes... Lingering finish with a shy touch of aromatic hops. Perfectly balanced, a delicious brew.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a rough beige head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body with plenty of roasted malts and dried fruit - even an oaky touch. A little low in carbonation and the bitterness is subdued. Quite lovely. 220808
