1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Weird stuff is this. I don’t feelk like aging this beer, so the warning is a bit over the top. :-) Aroma, of roasted chocolate and caramel malts. Even a tiny smokey tone. Very dark ruby coloured with a lasting, thin, off-white/brown head. Taste is sweet, chocolate malty, some spice/vegetable accent. Cola taste in it. Sticky. Not my thing.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, very dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of hard roasted malt. Medium-bodied with sweetish, roasted malt and some odd, lightly tart notes of Vitamin-C or something like that - fruitish. A lightly burned edge. Very subdued bitterness. 070706

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
I feel so much younger, but rather than r5efreshed and alive, I feel I’ve recaptured the stupidity I thought I might have left behind. My old boss gave this to me and I had it tucked away in the fridge for months thinking it was a non-alcoholic beer until seeing the 4.8%. Tastes too much like a malt, malto, or whatever those malt based drinks aer w/ no alcohol. I didn’t spit it out nor pour it out, but really didn’t enjoy that grainy malt and non-descript hop, just can’t get past the taste taste. I wouund up drinking about six ounces which seemd far too much before mixing another beer into it. If this is the beer for you, may we never go pub crawling together ....

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Deep dark body with a small and brown creamy layer. Intense nose of roasted malts, toffee and a mineral element. Soft sweet aromatic taste of malts and mocha with a lasting coffee, liquorice and a bit salty finish. Very tasty and enjoyable, but lacks a bit body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nearly black, but with red highlights; amber-brown, creamy head. Stoutlike, roasted/burnt malts with a fruity ’hue’. Flavonoids occur naturally in dark beer, but here one can really smell them. Sweet, dark but sweet malts - bit of liquorice in the finish. Some fruity notes, but difficultly attribuable. Some esters too, it would seem. Very sticky & creamy MF, rather well-bodied. Not bad, like a not-too-German interpretation of a sweet stout.
