4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50 cl bottle. Great "Bierstube Gretchen" kind of label on the bottle, nice touch. Very clear deep reddish brown, delicate colour, thin tan head. Appearance is astonishing!! Aroma is a wonderful mix of roasted malt, dark bread, caramel, nuts and a hint of dark fruits. Taste is absolutely fantastic, all the aromas are doubling up, including plums and raisins. This is one of THE best beers I ever had (and that’s quite a lot...).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, very deep brown to copper body with a beige, long-lived head that leaves some lacing before ending up as a partially covering film. Malty, sweet, rather vinous and strong aroma of dark caramel, malt extract, roasted malt, dark dried fruits. Strong flavour of sweet caramel, malt extract, roasted malt, and dark dried fruits. Port wine and hints of wood in the back. Full-bodied, oily and gently carbonated. Tasty!
