Very dark beer wirh a beige head. Aroma is a malty chocolate smell and the flavour follows suit but with a hoppy edge to it and a smoky finish. But for all that it’s surprisingly light. Very drinkable.

0.5 l bottle from a friend. Colour is dark brown, almost black. Tan head. Aroma has apple juice like flavour. Taste has first apple juice, then engine oil. This is quite dry stout. Very good, but not my favourite beer style.

Chopper925 (325) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle. Clear, but pitch black to brown color. Foamy beige head. Roasted cocoa, coffee and chocolate in the nose, could be a bit more intense. Taste is decent dry, heavy bitter. Aftertaste has some roasted malt, nearly some ash flavours and dark bitter chocolate. Texture is thick and low carbonated.
