Dark brown pour with a large creamy khaki colored head. Dunkel like aroma, dark fruit, maple, and some nuttiness. Hops are muted on the nose. Nice and easy on the palate with a warming sensation down below. Some hops are detected in the flavor, which helps to balance out the sweetness. Not quite to the level of cloying, but pushing the boundaries somewhat. This is a unique beer that would be even better if it were a little less sweet. For what it is though, I rate it a bit better than average and worth the purchase.

Koelschtrinker (14127) - 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
