2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a fluffy, tan head. Quite spicy, nutmeg, chewy, toasty malty aroma. Spicy yeasty, chewy, cracker, a touch burnt malty flavor. Kind of weird. Definitely not one of my favorites.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle by 30.10. Nose is caramel and rich, spicy dark malt that reminds of Andechser’s bocks, and there’s some non-sublte grape, too. Clear dark copper body with a short head. Crisp light body is malty with toffee, earth, caramel, light roast, faint chocolate, sticky bocky grape, touch of brown sugar; a little dry and a little spicy with a little kick of alcohol – lots of little accents here and there, but a convincing synergy even if the overall feel is a little rough.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The head is robust and the body is brown. The flavour is sweet, a bit dark-malty overall a bit mild. In the aftertaste it is also a bit citrus-herb. Could be more intensiv! 11/9/9/9/13/10

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!
Der Antrunk ist sehr lecker röstmalzig. Im Nachgeschmack ists etwas bitter, jedoch wirkt es sehr angenehm und macht das Dunkle sehr ausgewogen. Lässt sich sehr angenehm trinken!
