Dark brown beer, light just passes through. Softish palate, semi dry. Sublte toffee malt nose. A strange beer this - creamy malt, a dash of coffee, licorice, aniseed alcohol. A little marmalade hop bitterness. Finishes soft and dry. Nice components but disjointed. Nontheless end up a decent brew!

Koelschtrinker (15759) - 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
