3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle (beerangel.de), shared with ogivlado. The back label calls this a Dunkles Kellerbier. Interesting. Pours a hazy red/brown body with a darker off-white head that went away slowly. The nose is odd... dry dog food (coming from either yeast or grain or both) with some coffee as well. The taste is sweet, coffee, dog food again, crackers. Yeasty. Soft mouthfeel, drinkable. Ok but not my type of beer I guess. Interesting to try a sub style like this though.

500ml bottle (BeerAngel.de)
Lovely rich reddy brown, small doughy head. Very grainy malty aroma, decent roastiness, and some curious sweet corners that I can’t quite identify. Pleasant carbonation, smooth full palate. Grainy husky taste, and again an somewhat orthogonal sweet component. The latter appears to be fruity, something like strawberry or, more likely, raspberry. Finish is fairly long, and very pleasantly bitter. Pleasantly full-bodied without sacrificing any drinkability at all. Went down lovely.
