3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ HBF’13
Aroma is rather nice with cocoa and roasted malt. Flavour has cocoa, roastd malts and coffee. Feels like a schwartzbier that feels like a stout. And it seems that this is actually a dunkel...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark ruby - the aroma is doughy, nutty, with a slight earthy must, fruitiness and vegetal character - full but soft carbonation in the mouth - almost like a brown ale in flavor, with strong nutty flavor, moderate herbal bitterness - a little chalky and dry on the back end - slight hints of cocoa and bread at the end as well - earthy - an interesting and underrated beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Attractive tea-amber colour with lasting head. Grain yeast and hop aroma. Interesting herbal yeast flavour with some grain and hop. Somewhat thin and airy. Hard to place as a dark lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside. Pours a brown, creamy head atop a black body. Nose of nothing. Very highly carbonated and slightly sour. Not terribly complex and somewhat disappointing for this brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Blackish pour, lightly filtered. Peanuty, roasty, clean aroma, bright. Gooey, nutty, rich in the mouth, very easy drinking. Earthy and mushroomy. This is a pretty solid beer here. Should probably go under schwarz as well.
