Koelschtrinker (14606) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Röstiger, rund würziger Antrunk. Milde Herbe, sich steigernde Malzigkeit, leider kommt mit der Schokoladigkeit auch eine trockene Phase, ansonsten würde ich hier von Vollmundigkeit sprechen. So hat das Bier einen kurzen Abgang, ist aber noch angenehm würzig. 12/11/11/9/12/11
