3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle at home, swapped with Welshwizard645, poured into a pint glass, in as close to a German stab into the glass of beer pouring style as I could manage. Not quite black and opaque, but very dark with an at first lively head - due to not being handled very well. Smells dark, roasted and rich, very good. Tastes nice, like a good English mild. Tastes of nuts, roast, a hint of coffee and generally pleasant. Like a good English mild it is flavoursome and in part 2D. However its a fine beer, and clearly not as wide reknown as it should be. Rather good.

Bügelverschlußflasche von Stefan: Very deep amber coloured, bigger beaten-egg-white-like tanned head; solid toasty caramelly nose with fruity and mainly chocolatey aromas; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, soft; lingering chocolatey-toasty finish, becomes drier towards the end. Chapeau! An unexpected gem from the GDR.....

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from the brewery (mail-order). Deep brown colour, large beige head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate. Full-bodied, malty, lots of caramel and chocolate. Not as dry and cardboardy as many East German Schwarzbiers, this one is well balanced and full of good flavours. A delicious example of the style!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(swing top bottle, with thanks to Quack-Duck) Deep brown, almost black colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Slightly sugary sweet and roasted malty aroma with distinctive notes of dark and milk-chocolate, accompanied by a herbal and ethereally touch. Balanced roasty bitter and sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a pleasantly calm carbonation. Roasty malty taste with notes of chocolate, liquorice and herbal accents; sweet and roasty bitter, quite balanced and lasting finish. A pleasure; like a bottom-fermented Sweet Stout. 16.III.11
