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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
An opaque brown beer with a disappearing light brown head. The aroma is spicy with notes of soya, dates, and caramel. The flavor is somewhat like a Danish Hvidtøl: licorice and slightly burnt malt. The mouthfeel is smooth while the body is thin just like a Hvidtøl. But I haven’t felt my aging process slow down after drinking this beer - so I beleive it promises too much.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Brown coloured. Very sweet and sugary. Notes of rotten stuff. Thin bodied. This is one of the most bizarre beers I have tasted. If I have to drink any more of this crap, I will not get older. I will die.

Anti-aging?...well, this beer is so bad that it lasts a lifetime getting to the bottom of it. Sour and fatty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Because the Badebier is one of the ingredients in this brew I though it would be a good idea to taste them alongside each other.
All in all the brew retains the same qualities known from the other Neuzelle Schwarzbier: Its heavily roasted and quite sweet.
However compared to the badebeer there seems to be a very sligth vegetable aroma (its either the algae or my mind is making this up).
Color os the same red black as the Badebier however the head is less stable.
It is quite evident that the beer is thinner, and the lighter body adds some sharp edges to the roasted tasteprofile. It tastes a bit clayish/saltier as well.
It lacks the creamy milkchocolate aftertaste of the badebier, but the lightness makes it easier to drink and more refreshing.
Did it work? Well I don't know, but since I both drank a Bathbier and this one, some will probably claim that I am both cleaner and living longer now....
