3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cream coloured, small head over amber-copper coloured beer. Rather malty nose, parsley, bit perfumey; very faint cocao warming up, smelling like Ovomaltine. Bitter chocolate, almonds and other nuts. Praliné-vanilla filled chocolate bar, with an outspoken bitter finish. Very nice, flavourfull palate, rectifying the beers initial low profile. IMO, it ought to be more of a flavourbomb. A tad more alcohol (and fusels...) might have helped no end. Found in a Münchner supermarket, of all places...

can’t remember from where I got it ... - clear and dark reddish-brown beer under a solid and long lasting creamy beige foam; nice lacework; a solid aroma of cocoa; medium-bodied and with some sweetness; finishes gently tart with some chocolatey and earthy tones
