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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Stimmig malziger Antrunk, weich. Wenig Röstmalzaromen sind dabei vorhanden, außerdem eine leichte Herbe. Darüber hinaus hat das Bier nicht viel zu bieten, mit der Zeit wird es wässrig, was aber nicht störend ist. Im Abgang sind die Röstnoten weniger intensiv. Ein einfaches Schwarzbier, aber immerhin.

Bottle @ brewery tap Wurzburg. Nice brown-black but they served in a pils glass and it looks funny. Smells like a Malta. Slightly fizzy and thin. Sweet but nice.
