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.

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.

Bottle from Markgrafen, Würzburg
Beige color; generous compact head. As often happens, there is a strong aroma of paper and cardboard, and just light roasted malt. Simple caramel and roasted malt flavo, with some residual sweetness and a milky feeling. Low bitterness. Quite poor.
