Bottle at Hotel Cristall, Cologne. Dark dark brown - offwhite head. High malty, roasted, light burned notes, ryebread, sweetness, light berries, acid from the burned malts, ok fresh notes - not too heavy

ThirstyBird (2617) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2013
From a bottle bought at the Pub. Pours a deep cola color with a deep tan head that falls to a skim. Smell is dark malt, molasses, licorice. Taste is fairly sweet with the dark malt, a little of the molasses comes through but the taste is pretty clean finishing dry. It is medium/ full bodies with medium carbonation. Overall, I wasn’t sure that I liked it at first as it is initially a bit sweet but I keep taking more sips and can’t seem to stop. I’m not a huge malzbier fan but this is certainly the best one that I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 Huge white head. Cleat black colour. Very sweet malt aroma and taste. Too sugary for my taste.

Very dark. Smells and tastes really, really sweet. Too sweet even for me.

Das Malzbier der Mühlenbrauerei enthält 2% Alkohol! Die Schaumkrone ist gut und dunkel. Es riecht ein bisschen nach Karamel und schmeckt sehr süß. Im Verlauf des Bieres nimmt die süße ein wenig ab. Ein leckeres und sehr Geschmacksintensives Malzbier! Fazit: Find ich gut! Test vom 22.1.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,10,-,11 - 11,10

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas siehts aus wie ein ganz normales Malz. Tiefschwarz, mit der Malzbiertypischen Krone, welche sehr feinporig und sehr hoch dasteht. Haltbar ist das Malzbier nur noch wenige Tage, also muss es nun dran glauben. Geruchlich ist es erstaunlich süß und minimal röstmalzig. Der Antrunk erfolgt anfangs sehr süß, im Nachgeschmack kommt die röstige Note gut durch. Zur Mitte nimmt die süßliche Note etwas ab. Man schmeckt durchaus raus, dass es sich hier um ein alkoholhaltiges Malzbier handelt. Also mir schmeckts ausgezeichnet!

My Bottom Line :
Overly sweet and bubbly, this frightening concoction may still please those who are used to drinking colas by the liters as a freakish version of that beverage.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-There is not much foam atop the dark brown.
-This was like drinking a Cola with caramel syrup…
-The refreshing factor is taken away by the intense sweetness.
-The prickly, intense carbonation is once again akin to a soda pop of some kind .
-This is not poorly executed at all; it is simply thoroughly unappealing for this craft beer lover. Their Kölsch, on the other hand, is lovely.

At the brewery restaurant.

Flavor and Palate : very sweet, candy sugars, caramel with light grainy follow up. Far too sweet to be drinkable.
