Draught at the brewpubKoelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Black color. Light aroma of roasted malt. The body is not strong enough; less smooth than the others, with some dry roasted malt. Low bitterness.
Malzig-röstiger Antrunk, die Röstigkeit als stärkstes Aroma wird schnell mild, spät auch wässrig. Lasch, zum Ende langweilig. 10/6/7/6//6

On tap at the brewery tap. Black beer, lasting beige head. Not a tremendous aroma, some dark malts, quite good in mouth with a drying powder coffe finish. Quite good strength. Cross between a dark lager and a porter. Fine Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Chestnut brown. Toasty, coffeeish character. Very chocolatey, with light munich dark malt character. Perhaps a bit thinner in the finish than I would like, but otherwise good tmave.
