3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle in Germany. My last on the Oettinger tour. Pours a nice black color. Head is a nice brown color. Aroma is deep roasted malt with hints of fruit. Taste is very much the same as the aroma. This is a very smooth beer. Palate is very mellow for this type of beer. It is much better than Köstritzer hands down. Oettinger’s best so far!!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle bought in Germany, pours a brown-tinged black with a fast-vanishing beige head. Nose of roast malt and molasses with a touch of coffee, sweet and slightly prickly on the tongue, treacle toffee on the back of the palate, roasty with hints of fruitcake, long dark roast-bitter aftertaste. A very quaffable schwartz.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle shared with Tomaz.
dark brown; tan head.
aroma and flavors, light body, with mild caramel malts, touch of dark fruits, fizzy carbonation leaving a watery palate along with some bitterness.
Again, nicely done, but weak and watery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (thanks Timo A!). Very deep ruby colour, mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is caramel malts, some syrup as well as toffee. Flavour is quite much the same and overly sweet. Could do with some ingredients that balances the sweetness up.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 50cl. A dark but carbonated beer with a huge white head. The smell is rosted, not too malty a bit nutty. Some floral taste are there (from the yeast ?). Quite dry but very drinckable, not very complex.
