Decent dunked that was being served as Germany took on Portugal in the 2014 World Cup. It played its role for that game.

Flasche 33cl. Dunkel, perfekte Balance zwischen malziger Süße und hopfiger Bittere. Sehr kernig, überhaupt keine brenzlige Schärfe durch Färbemalz. Vermute traditionelles Mehrfachmaischverfahren. Klasse Dunkles!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Paid $3.29 for a 16.9 oz. bottle at Carls Meat Market. Dark ruby color with no head. Aroma has standard caramel and weak roasted hints, brown sugar.
Flavor is toffee, burnt nuts and light raisin. Texture is watery with a thin body. European / German malt variety. Light metal hints. Lighter in body, low carbonation. Drinkable but not something to search for.

A quite grassy malt aroma and I schwarzbierish flavor, this is more heavy than sweet. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at Babushka Russian deli in Walnut Creek. It pours a typical dark brown color with a disappearing khaki head. The aroma is malty with notes of bread, plum, raisin and molasses. Maybe a slight licorice and cocoa note. The flavor is pretty dry and malty with more bread, toast, raisins with a slight earthy bitterness in the finish. There’s a hint of roasted malt in the aftertaste. Pretty satistifying brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle poured into a La Fin Du Monde tulip. Pours very dark brown color with a tiny head. Aroma is metallic, slight dusty, and clean roast layered malts. Flavor is similarly nice clean roast but some old dirty water (very early age) coming through. Picked this up at a Russian store with no date on the bottle. Not bad but not fresh. Also seems more like a Schwarz.
