Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstad; bb 27.12.14
Brown color with medium sized head. Dusty aroma, roasted malts, burnt wood. Dry mouthfeel, not much of the promised chocolate, roasted malts, not ashy; there is also some dark caramel; correct bitterness.
Nice, well brewed, not exciting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Darkest Brown with a Red hue. Inviting aroma of caramel and chocolate. It has a nice stouty texture with plenty of chocolate, caramel and a touch of fruity yeast. It all leads to a nice malty bitter finish. Quite a lofty beer. Thereís been a few more flare beers from Germany hitting the shelves these days. Iím for it.

Schuim is heel erg snel weg. Geur: gerosterde koffie. Milde chocolade. Noot. Karakter vol. Helaas een beetje waterig. Iets teveel koolzuur.
