2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazelnut brown to black color, together with a beige, bubbly lacing, coating the edge of the glass.
Has aromas of dried walnut shell, bread, rock sugar and a note of milk chocolate. All in all the nose comes well together promising a sweeter, malt relying beer.
Has a soft mouthfeel among a lighter body, which features many Dunkel qualities in a well put together way, ranging from bready to toffeeish sweet.
Begins with slightly tart milk chocolate, coming along with a soft bread and earth malt foundation, which turns sweeter, revealing toffee qualities right before the swallow. Gets added a portion of rock sugar during the finish, balanced by earthy marzipan and bakers chocolate, preventing the beer from becoming overly sweet.
Solid beer, with a pleasant finish, absorbing a lot of the prominent sweetness, adding a nice depth to the taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Süßlich-caramelliges Schwarzbier. Kaum Herbe, keine Lakritze. Süffig-mild, karamellig süßlich im Nachgeschmack mit einem Hauch von Röstmalz. Schade.
