Sweet aroma of caramel and dark maltiness. Mouthfeel is thin. Pretty boring flavour, there’s a cherry note in there which is nice but otherwise mediocre stuff.

Mittelmalziger Antrunk. Würzig mittelintensiv, mit der Zeit süßer werdend. Dabei tief malzig bleibend, recht würzig, leicht hopfig-herb. Der Abgang ist etwas bananig und sehr malzig. Vollmundiges Bier!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle in Germany thanks to shrubber85. Pours a very dark red, almost black with a thick tan head that lasts. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and some smoke. Taste is very smooth throughout with a mild roastiness and hints of chocolate in the malt. Palate is a creamy texture with a well balanced finish. I enjoyed this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample courtesy of The Losh. Very dark oily pour lets in some light creating an ambery hue. Has a moderate beige cap. The nose is very roasty, and hints at coffee and vanilla, with some grassy hops. Sweet, but fairly balanced by floral bittering hops. Medium light body,Long bitter finish with musty like black coffee in the end. A good effort from this brewer.
