3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark from the bottle with a brown head that soon fades. An intensive aroma of roasted malt, red wine, and red currant greets the nose. Unfortunately it also betrays a hint of raw alcohol.
The taste has some of the usual roasted notes of a typical stout, but quickly trends sour with a fruity, berry-like tang making itself felt. The finish is dry and bitter; there is a fair dose of hops in this one. Again a faint touch of alcohol is present. This one may have been better with a slightly lower ABV. As it stands the beer is quite good, but not great. The name "Nachtflug" translates to "night flight" and, yes, after too many of these you will embark for the night.

Tap @ Hopfenreich. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of sweet liquorice, dark sweet malts, some roasted malts, chocolate, sweet tobacco and vanilla. The taste has roasted malts as well, sweet caramel, weak ashy notes, cocoa and biscuit. A bit thin but still an ok beer.

Mar ’15. On tap at Hopfenreich, Berlin. It poured pitch black body with a smaller, brown head. Alcohol, chicory, light coffee, tart black wine aroma. Mildly sweet flavor, chocolate, caramel, plain sugar, lots of dark fruits, a bit herbal, especially towards the end. Relatively full bodied and complex although not extremely so for the style. Long and pleasant rounded dark malty and now bitter herbal/grass hop finish. A pleasant IS for sure, with well hidden alcohol except the nose. Unlike the previous two taps this was luckily in the good shape!
