3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled @ de Molen, most possibly about 5 years old, small sample. Slight hazy copper color, short head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate malts, quite some raisin and nicely aged caramel. Soft sweet, soft bitterness. Didn’t expect a lot, but it turned out very nice actually. Never tried it fresh though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the De Molen Second Tuesday tasting, September 2013. Poured a clear dark chesnut brown with a broken off-white head. The aroma is rich red-berry fruit and nuts. The flavour is medium bitter with a super fruity, creamy palate with some liquorice and caramel sitting there too. The finish is bitter yeast with a hint of sourness. This beer contains so many flavours!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
6.5% A stein beer, meaning it was brewed using hot rocks to heat the wort. In this case, black granite. A very dark brown pour with a dark beige head makes this a most unusual looking lager! The aroma is burning rocks, fire & a hint of malts. An interesting taste, malty sweet then burning, fire & a kind of bitter roast finish. Worth trying just to say you’ve had a stein beer. On it’s own merits it is ok though I think the style might better suit a stout...

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown, big foamy head. Nose is caramel, pretty weak aroma. Taste is toasty, roasted malts, a little bitter coffee and dark chocolate on the back end. Not sweet. Not bad, not great.

Bottle. Great lager with some unique flavors. Strong for a lager but very balanced. A little hoppy and smooth malt. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roast. nuts, and a little coffee and chocolate in the aroma. More of the same in a relatively mild flavor. Tasty but not overpowering, this is a fine change-of-pace but still a crowd pleaser.
