3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle. Dark amber to red color, nice offwhite head, lasting. Nose is of roasted malts. Aroma focused on roasted malts, a bit grainy, dark bread, softly spicy. Some caramel also but doesn’t make it to sweet or sticky. Reminds me of some Bitter ales, with an aromatic hoppy edge. Texture is simple, body is light to medium, moderate carbonation. It was pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Screw-top bottle, MHD 04.04.12. Nose is lightly dusty with toffee/caramel and good chocolaty roast, and a little Franconian spagh funk. Deep, dark brown body with red highlights and a rocky tan head. Taste is sweet with low bitterness, a little bit of sharp tang cutting through the waves of chocolate and roast, spicy notes picking up with the carbonation. Slick medium-full body, nice tones of dark bread. Lightly woody, very lightly herbal, but this one is all about the malt.
