1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Looks identical to coke when poured, same head and everything, even the lacing. Aroma is odd, like cold spinach. and stale Highlife. Flavor is malty, with the slightest hint of raisins, like it’s trying to be a doppelbock. Standard sort of hazelnuttiness you get out of most brown beers. Finishes a little sticky, but the back end nuttiness is good. Body is way to this for the flavor; this feels like malt liquor. Disappointing, as I actually like the verum. Aroma does get better (brown sugar) as it warms.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear chestnut brown, beige head. Warm toasted bread aroma, a little oily, fecal and spicy. The taste is clearly toasted bread crust, slightly sweet with notes of almond/marzipan. The finish is light bitter with roasty and spicy hoppy notes. Regular lager body with average carbonation. Pretty nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear, dark brown with a grey head of foam. Decent retention. The aroma has some burnt toast character, and a nutty, toffee-like nuance. The taste has moderate sweetness levels. There is a touch of bitterness at the very end. Lighter in body and medium to high carbonation.
