Bottle. Too cold to start, witjh some chocolate, old wood shavings, butter and hazelnuts on the aroma and flavour. When warmer it did not improve much. Watery, not a mild out of this world.

good aroma pleasant. A nice dark appearance and promises of a silky smooth pint. The taste disappointed me. I was expecting more but t tasted a bit diluted. Overall it was ok but not one I would buy again

At first I served this a bit too cold which had a negative impact on the beer. As it warmed slightly the beer improved considerably and started to give off all sorts of flavours, nuts, dark fruits, raisins, toffee all tickled the tastebuds while a slight hoppiness waited in the wings to give a subtle, bitter finish. All in all a nice beer if you do as it says on the label, serve cool NOT chilled.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dunkelmaziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-malzig, angenehm mild, recht süffig. Man merkt den geringen Alkoholgehalt. Aber durch die angenehm-malzige Note wirkt das Bier trotzdem nicht wässrig. Sehr toll.
Der Nachgeschmack ist röstmalzig-schokoladig, dabei angenehm herb. Röstmalzig-herbe Töne bleiben lange auf der Zunge. --> Für die 3.9% richtig toll!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Really nice black ruby pour with great head. Aroma’s a bit nutty, roasty, and fruity, but more apple than the darker carameled fruits i’d like/expect. Taste is alright, with some nutty biscuit notes and a bit of roast again. Palate is a bit thin, though the carbonation amps it a bit.
