3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well-balanced black beer, quaffable yet has some character. Half-liter bottle pours black, mahogany highlights, decent tan head. Light, malty nose is sweet, bready, slightly roasty. Lightly sweet flavor fades into a lightly bitter, roasted taste, with pumpernickel, chocolate and fainter coffee notes. Faintly roasty aftertaste. Nice for washing down a burger. Love to try it fresh on draft some day.

Can. Dark color with a very thick off-white head. Has a lovely aroma of roasted malts. Flavor is roasty, and sweet. I can really taste the chocolate and coffee. Very smooth finish and quite drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great black color. Really thin head slips away quickly. Chocolaty malt flavor. Stoutish porterish, but without the nice body. I wish the Krauts didn’t gyp us on this one.
