3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from DSG. Thanks Barak! It pours a very dark brown with a thin, disappearing khaki head. The aroma is pleasing with some sweet cocoa powder, toast and light notes of earthy hops and sulfur. The flavor has more toast and light cocoa, vanilla and hints of diluted molasses, roasted malt and earthy hop bitterness in the finish. There’s a touch of metal and green/raw malt that throws it off a bit and keeps it from being truly enjoyable, but I liked the toast and cocoa flavors. The body is a bit thin too, but not too bad for a lower gravity Dunkler Bock. I’d drink this on the regular if options were slim.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nie jest ciemne ale czysto klarowne - bursztynowe. W aromacie słody ciemne, dochodzą nuty palone a nawet wędzone i karmel. W smaku przede wszystkim dość wodniste i bez głębszego wyrazu, goryczka ledwo wyczuwalna, piwo dość wytrawne z cytrusowym posmakiem. Kolejne piwo z niepiwnej części świata. Typowe piwo do otwarcia i szybkiego wypicia z gwinta w upalne dni. Nie jest beznadziejne - jest zwykłe.
