3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 01.11.12, for drinking, I guess, no word on the bathing expiry. Sweet grainy nose, very light roast and nuts and the sweetness seems a little artificial. A beautiful dark brown in the glass with a large, tan, rocky foam mattress of a head. Sweet taste turning semi-dry, with ash, light chocolate and coffee, maybe some caramel-butterscotch. Rye and caraway in the aftertaste. Smooth medium-light body. Really not that bad, but like most from Neuzeller, gets old after a few ounces. Did add the majority to a hot bath. The verdict? I don’t think I’ve bathed in bathwater of that color brown before, the referent is a classic ‘morning after pee’, a dark yellow in which you can see various greens and browns.

Palate is medium bodied, watery with smooth soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Taste is roasted malts, caramel and stout like dryness.
