Bottle 50cl. Clear amber brown color, small sizzling creamy off-white head, disappears rather quickly, thin layer remains, fair lacing; rich aroma of roasted malts, bread, brown sugar, licorice, some fruity notes, touch of coffee; taste medium sweet and slightly bitter, roasted malts, bit of coffee; medium to full body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation; finish is mild bittersweet, hint of chocolate, bit peppery, roasty maltiness lingers on. Bit strong for a dunkel, but I don’t mind...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beautiful beer with plenty of promise but sadly, it doesn´t fulfill. Or does it?
Dark amber colored with a nice, white head and a sweet aroma promises a heavy, tasteful beer but no... It tastes slightly bitter and a bit sour. So it looks and smells like a good food-beer, it´s actually a great thirst cruncher for those summer-nights... I like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a delicious look. The beer is dark, and has a nice dark amber color in the light and a dark brown color in the dark. The beer is crystal clear. Some tiny bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. On top of the beer, a small layer of rough slightly grayish foam is formed. It collapses quickly, to leave a thin drape. The smell is a little mild, but not bad. There is a nice tiny bitter touch of roasted barley. I also smell some lovely hop aromas. There is a nice bitter aroma and a fruity sweetness. This fruity aroma is lovely, but I can’t really define what it is. Maybe there is a touch of strawberry. The taste is also very nice. There is a firm bitterness, balanced by some malty sweets, a tiny salty touch of roasted barley and a fruity sour twist. The balance is great. The palate of the beer is normal. A bit more kick wouldn’t harm the beer. But like this, it also ain’t bad. Good beer.
