Great on the nose, has this particular smokey dense taste that old-fashioned german/austrian crafted beers often have. Deep intense flavor notes, notably chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly good for such an inexpensive beer.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From old tasting notes. Translucent reddish brown color has a large tan head. The aroma is rich, sweet roasted malt with molasses notes. Candy-like sweet roasted malt flavor pervades upfront. Finish is slightly less sweet, but lacking any noticeable hops. Sweet malt aftertaste is too much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. Enjoyed on draft at the brewery in Graz with Gary on November 18. The pour is a darker brown color with a thin layer of off white head and a couple spots of lace as it falls. The aroma is heavy on the roasted malts and a light caramel. There is a light fruitiness to it that is throwing me, but it’s interesting. The flavor mimics this, but offers a little more cereal and general graininess. The malt really controls, and it’s not a terrible thing. The mouth feel is viscously light and carries a softer carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty with a hint of caramel. Not too terrible.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Den Rock Liquor Mart. Aroma is light roasted malt, leather, funk, German yeast. Appearance is hazy amber with bits of sediment, no sparkle, ephemeral thin white head, and trace lacing. Taste is mainly moderately sweet--a bit toward root beer, with some German yeast funkiness. Palate is medium bodied with somewhat oily texture, average carbonation and dry bitter-tart finish. Overall, glad to check off an Austrian brew but don’t know when I’ll try my next one. Not good.
