Aroma is sourish with roasted notes and chocolate. Flavour is slightly sour with chocolate, coffee and hints of vanilla. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colored with a red gleam and a thin off-white head. Roasted malt aroma with creamy notes, rather mild but nicely balanced and pleasant.
Malt and chocolate dominates the flavor, notes of fruit and grass. A bit thin in the body but well balanced. Very fruity for a schwarzbier.
