2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a bottle sporting a plastic pull-top type thing. Pours brown from the bottle. The frothy crown fizzes and makes a quick exit. The aroma lets you know from the outset that this is a malt-driven beer: sweet, earthy, with hints of molasses and caramel. Taste is exceptionally sweet with both roasted and medicinal notes. The finish is without bitterness and leaves you with a light syrupy sweetness on the tongue. This feels like a midway station between a sugary malt drink and a "proper" beer. The second disappointing brew I brought back from Austria from this brewer and, thankfully, the last.

0.33l bottle from mpreis in innsbruck, 1.19€.
pours a clear chestnut with a small white head and some lacing. aroma of grass, grains, very slight roast. I’m not sure I would have recognized that this is a dark beer by smell alone. flavour of milk chocolate, nuts, bread. sweetish finish.

Für ein schwarzes sehr rötliche farbe! Angenehmer geschmack! Nicht so süß wie die meisten schwarzbiere! Passt sehr gut zu wildgerichten!
