Thanks for the gift Lajos! While I really enjoyed drinking this, it was much lighter and milder than I had anticipated (expected Kostritzer). Nevertheless it was tasty. Sweet and maybe even a hint of chocolate. Too light on alcohol in the end for me.

Dobre piwo choć jak dla mnie nie rewelacyjne i nawet w swojej kategorii. Rubinowo-czerwone odcienie i gożki finisz są jak najbardziej porządane. Piwo lekko gryzie i zbyt głębokich łyków nie da się robić.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 17 Dec 2010, my second beer during my 2 July 2010 German beer evening. Poured (twice) into my ’Paderborner’ tall vase shaped glass.
Dark brown with reddy hints with a thick tan head.
The aroma was of burnt/roasted/toasted malts with semi-sweet molasses as it warmed.
The taste was malty, but a little dry up front, the dryness continueing throughout the mouthfeel.
I thought the body a bit thin, but I always do with German black beers, they just seem to lack character where they most need it and have very little richness or depth.
