3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Potent breadcrust and sherry-like nutty aroma that is nearly pungent. Clear chestnut appearance with a patchy, off-white top. Flavour is sherry-like nutty with tons of bread crust and a hint of cardboard. Balance is on the sweet side, but this beer would not be better if it were more bitter. Quite decent, for style. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly tangy nutty finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Kopfeck. Clear brown with a big creamy head. Sweet bready malt aroma with a sweet crusty edge. Some dryer toasty malt in the flavor but more on the sweet rounder side of malty. Light bodied and relatively dry in the finish moreso due to attenuation than melamoidins. Not that bold but a reasonable balance.
