2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown colour with a medium foamy brown head. Shy nose of toasted malts. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted bread, caramel, and straw, but the body is a little thin.

[Bottle bought in Flensburg at 3 am after Deutschland-Portugal (3-1)].
Normally you can drink only a few schwarzbiers before you are stuffed, but thisone is so thin, that you can continue for hours and good for that at that night. No doubt that it’s a schwarzbier, but it’s watery and could need more body. Otherwise it contains the usually notes as roasted malt and chocolate.

500ml bottle: poured very dark brown with some red highlights. Smallish tan head. Light roasted malt aroma and slightly nutty. Flavor is also slightly nutty with a touch of cherry. Light roastiness. Decent body. I liked it.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light roasted chocolaty aroma. Dark brown, failing head.
Watery, sugary, minerally, slightly skunky.
How can you consistently fail to brew a good beer like that?

Bottle: Almost black with a big, fluffy off-white head, ,quickly diminishing to a small foamy layer; shy malty nose (with an illusion of molasses and roasted malts), sweetish, but mainly dry malty bitter flavour; mild, a bit bitter and a bit fruity finish. Neither unpleasant, nor tasty.......................

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light nose - undetectable, deep dark brown color with a red tinge, frothy creamy head. Chocolate and nutty character. Missing the roasted qualities you want. Thin and watery with an oily mouthfeel. Hey, Oettinger CAN make an above average beer.
