3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl, with thanks to Allen!) Hazy, dark and ruby amber colour with a big and slightly beige foamy head. Sweet and slightly toasted malty aroma with yeasty and berry-fruity notes, accompanied by traces of caramel and cacao. Sweet flavour with a shy bitterness, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly toasted malty taste with caramel, chocolate, liquorice and lighter fruity notes, from which the latter remind me rather of the early stages of an infection than complexity; almost dry and moderately toasty finish with delicate hoppy spice and caramel and chocolate in the aftertaste. Still a pleasant one. 31.XII.09

Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy deep ruby beer with a heterogenous tanned head. The nose is of dark chocolate, plums, peat, chesnut purée, caramel, ginger and black pepper. Amazingly complex and incredible! The taste is wonderful. Black chocolate, licorice, plums and ginger showing up..... you name it! Nicely smoky but slightly sour unfortunately. Smoky finish with hints of dark bread, heather and ginger.

Bought in Zurich, Switzerland at Drinks of the World in the Hauptbahnhoff Railway Station. A bit sourish, sweet and roasty all at the same time. Hints of burnt wood. I liked the complexity - it gives you something to contemplate.

Wädi-Bräu Wädenswiler Dunkel
Dark brown color; fizzy, poor head retention. Aroma of chestnut honey, caramalt, chocolate malt, interesting. The body is not well structured, actually quite dry, with a flavor between the caramel and the chocolate malt; the bitterness is not very high. Ordinary.
