3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: Mostly black with dark brown highlights; fine-bubbled, creamy tan head that leaves behind moderate lacing. Aroma has lots of coffee, cream, burnt caramel, brown sugar, toasted malt, milk chocolate, a hint of vanilla. Not much strawberry in the nose, which is funny because the barrel aged version of this has TONS of strawberry in the aroma. Flavor is lightly roasty up from with notes of sweet cream, French vanilla, milk chocolate, iced coffee, a very small hint of dark fruit towards the finish. Really get the lactose-esque sweetness lingering in the finish, aftertaste packed with milk chocolate. Again, strawberry is almost extinct on the palate. Thinner body than expected. A good beer once in a while, though a bit too sweet to be consumed often.

355ml bottle from favourite beer. Deep cola black, and the sweetness gives it an almost cola taste. A touch too sweet for me.

Na, das ist doch mal wieder ein Bierchen mit Herz und Verstand. Milch und Suesse kommen gut durch, waehrend Sueffigkeit mehr als gegeben ist und hervorragend mit den gebotenen Aromen harmoniert. Ein mildes, einfach zu trinkendes und mehr als befriedigendes Piwo.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big brown head with great cling. Just barely translucent clear deep
dark red body. Fruity chocolatey aroma with perfumy sugary notes.
Mildly artificial aroma that feels like the beer is going to be too
sweet, but otherwise great. Sweet earthy perfumy fruity taste with
cocoa notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy
fruity mealy aftertaste with lingering dusty roasty notes. Very
interesting beer, and well put together, but too artificial and too
one-sided for me to give it higher marks. Wasn’t too sweet, after
all. (0.355l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)
