3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Herber Antrunk, in dem das Aroma alleine steht und auf nachzügler wartet.Später wenig würzig, der Gesamteindruck ist aber positiv. Recht süffig, außer der Herbe sticht zum Ende noch der Hopfen hervor. Angenehm frisches Bier, urig! 11/10/10/11//10

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From bottle at the Pigs Ear Beer Festival, London on 6 December 2006 at 4.2%. Coppery amber colour. Yuck. Big butterscotch aroma. I hate that. Malty flavours – nuts, toffee and doughy bread. Tastes rather better than it smells but still not too good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Brauerei Scwarzes Kreuz, Eggolsheim, during Fin and Loz’s cycle ride around villages to the South and South East of Bamberg, Germany 19-06-10 Copper in colour with a white head and busy carbonation. There is some toffee in the mouth and a steady sweetness. This is quite, quite different from the really refreshing Vollbier and Lager that we had at Witzgall, its nice but a bit chewy at times.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ keller. dark vollbier though hard to discern exact color in krug. Nice head leaves ring lace. The aroma is mild with good mineral and asphalt notes. the palate is slick with low carbonation. Nice roast here, leaves nice toasty tastes. Clean and drinkable. Subtle chocolate and minerals emerge in layers. Not bursting with flavor but is subtle, enjoyable, and grows on me.

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Quite dark, nice head. Tastes sourish-fruity, very interesting. Finish a little bit malty. Really good beer!
