3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Dark ruby red, almost black. Tall off-white head. Fine-laced at the top, but coarser at the bottom. Crystal clear. Soapy, raspberry/black currant aroma. Some richer malts in the background. Soft mellow roasted red berry flavours. Little bubbles and low carbonation makes the beer feel very smooth and very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big beige head over deep dark red body. Milky, slightly rubbery aroma with velvety, lightly roasted notes. Taste is sweetish raspberry-like roasted malt, a tad watery. Aftertaste is burnt, chalky, and somewhat bitter. Not bad, but nothing too exciting, either. (0.5l bottle.)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Traces of nuts and to some extent metall. Puors dark with small top. A bit watery and thin, for some reason that didn’t disturb me much. Enjoyable. Note: I am pretty sure this is the beer I am refering to, the alcohol level on the beer I drank is however 4.1% and not 4.4%

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, alc. 4.1% (BB 05/2006)
Dark ruby color, good tanned creamy head. Toffee caramelly and buttery aroma. Quite light palate. Caramel, buttery notes, carbonation. More dunkel than schwarzbier. Very "easy to drink" and lacks character.
