4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Nice styled bottle and a unique container for the four bottles.
The aroma starts with roasted malt and a little bit of gras and earth which is followed by some sweetness.
The appearance of this beer marvelous: A rocky head, coloured between some off-white and light brown, fully lasting.
The hue of the body is a nice red, the clarity is clear.
The flavor starts bitter and finished also lightly bitter with a hint of sweetness. The duration is very long.
A medium body with a dry texture and a lively carbonation.
A truly great beer, one of the bests I’ve ever drank so far. Maybe the best in germany...!?!
