from bottle. pours an amber to red colour with a frothy beige head. quite malty, roasty aroma with lots of caramel and toffee in it paired with a subtle hoppiness that reminds me of pine needles, fresh forest air and resin. there are some dark fruit notes to it as well. spectacular aroma profile! average carbonation, light to medium body and kind of oily texture. medium bitterness mixed with a slight sweetness. well balanced malty and hoppy notes. good beer!

The head is ok, the body red and clear. It smells very malt aromatic, fruity a bit amarena-cherry, fruity, a bit barley. The taste is full bodied, maltaromatic, a bit bitter-hoppy, a bit dusty-barley. Nice! 11/11/12/11/11/11

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, fine malty, not too dry. Interesting caramel notes, modest roasty. Finish well balanced, mild-dry. A good one!

26/12 0.33 l bottle, courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! It poured clear copper brownish body with small head. Malty caramel aroma, but rather dry, touched with light citrus hops. Flavor was lightly sweet, nicely toasted: caramel, brown sugar, some biscuit, toast, going to a bit dryer things gradually, when some herbal hops are showed in the finish, besides caramel which was dominating all the way through. Pretty full bodied. Really nice and enjoyable Vienna.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma of strong grassy hops and biscuity malts. Rather rich flavour of grassy hops, biscuity malts, strong nuts, herbs and some toffee. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a malty, bitter and nutty finish. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 13.03.13. Great nose, really doughy and lightly spicy malt, caramel with burnt bread crusts and even a little pumpernickel, beautiful (and unusual!) dark garnet pour with a rocky tan head. Watery light body with some caramel, fizzy with faint bitterness, but thankfully isn’t all that sweet, and so wins on balance points. There are some dirty bitter burned notes, almost ashy, which come to dominate at the finish and beyond, but the overall impression is a good one.
