3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 355ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Dark brown with cream head. Fruity, bramble aroma going on to quite a sweet caramel beer, still some forest fruit notes but a little cloying and heavy. Malt dominates the close. Just too sweet for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black/brown with a moderate head. The aroma is rather weak with notes of roasted malt. The flavour isn’t as sweet as many shcwartzbiers are, actually it reminds me more of a thin stout. It’s easy to drink, uncomplicated with notes of caramel and a hint of licorice in the slightly bitter finish.
