Pours a bright ruby red beer with a huge creamy head. Smells malty sweet, slightly earthy in the background. Starts pronounced malty, slightly roasty, pleasantly sour in the background, which is perfectly complemented with the yeast. The finish shows very roasted malty, full-bodied, slightly bitter, with a subtle smokiness.

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...!?!

Rating from 24.1.2008: Im Geruch frisch-malzig mit angenehmer Süße.
Der Antrunk ist schön hopfig-frisch mit leicht malziger Note, im Hauptteil hefig-süßlich-herb,
sehr weich und süffig. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, schön röstmalzig-trocken mit
milder Herbe. --> 12.7

Pours a bright clear brown with orange highlights with a lofty tan head. Smells of toasted malt, dark bread, some caramel. Taste is quite roasty, earthy, mildly sweet with some licorice on the slightly dry aftertaste. This beer is super smooth with beautiful fine carbonation...perfect!! Body is light plus. Well the taste is interesting and pretty full while the body is superb.

33 cl. bottle @ home. Dark amber with an off-white head. Fruity aroma with some cinnamon(?). Earthly flavour with some smokey roasted malts. Quite unique taste, at least for me, and I tend to like it. Very interesting.
