jost2410 (3) - köln, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2015 Dunkel, fast schwarz, leider kein sehr stabiler Schaum. Rote Frucht im Antrunk, ausgewogen zwischen Säure und malziger Süsse im Geschmack. Wirklich besonders. Die 10,5% alc. merkt man diesem Abteibier sowas von nicht an. Aktuell eines meiner Lieblingsbiere. Am besten direkt vor Ort probieren!
