2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, courtesy of papsoe. A clear, copper beer with a beige head. Some cooked vegetables in the aroma, but mostly grainy with caramel. Lacks the roasted or burnt aromas. Caramel, dried fruits and sweetness in the flavor, quite nice, but lacks on the roasted or burnt malt I expect from a schwarzbier. Medium body, and a bit sweet. Fruity finish. Quite decent, but not where it should be. (080823)
