3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark rubin color with a big brown head, nice appearance. Smell is roasted malts, bread crust and caramel. Taste is similar, but weaker I would say, a bit too waterish, there is not much aftertaste.
An average dunkel.

Bottle 500 ml, thanks to McTapps. Into a snifter, ABV 4.7%
Deep red ruby colour on the body, head is one finger tall and tan in colour with very good retention. Light lacing on the glass
Aroma is nutty with nice toffee and chocolate notes.
Taste follows, nutty, light roasted malts, a bit of toffee with a nice bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation, nice dryness on the palate.
Overall more than decent, very enjoyable.

Kräftige dunkle Farbe, herber Antrunk, malzig dunkle Röstaromen, schöner Schaum, recht süffig da weniger Alkohol und weniger süß als viele andere dunkle Massenbiere, da hat man Lust auf mehr.
