3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Look; light beige head and dark copper red body, clear, - small dots as lacing. Aroma; dark bread, dark malts, dark fruits, dark caramel. Taste; dark malts, malted candies, prunes, dark caramel - leading to a soft dark-malty finish. Normal texture and soft carbonation. Easy dark, absolutely recommended for those who have never tried a dark beer. This will certainly not scare anyone. [50cl brown bottle 5%abv BB20-11-2015 @Bierothek Bamberg T@Ferie2015]
