KoNrRiI (1181) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 bottle. A clear, dark brown color with a medium, off-white head. Aroma has a strong backbone of dark malts with additions of sugar, wood, fruits, and hints of coriander. Taste is sweet, malty, sugary - alright. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, sweet, and represents a good combination of malty and yeasty characters. Overall the beer is simply good, nothing to it.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (vom Händler des Vertrauens). Starker Anblick im Glas und in der Alkohollast. Ansonsten finde ich es total überbewertet.

Yeasty aroma, I smell dough and cheese, but also sugar. Pours dark golden with a frothy head. Flavour is rich and quite sweet. The after taste tastes sugar. Medium bodied, average carbonation. The sweet flavour lingers. Nice beer.
