3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5L bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Deep brown, ruby-tinted beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly malty and cocoaish with a soft toasted malt character. Chewy and sweet but with a light chocolatey character. Deeply cocoaish flavour over a soft but well-lagered clean sweetness. Lots of munich character through the middle. Really nice beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Bierspezialitäten Armin Kotterheidt. The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low head and medium to thin body. Aroma of roasted malt and dark bread. Taste of malt, barley, woods, torf and grains. Hints of bread. Thin and not a very complex beer plus that grainy finish makes it a below average beer. Couldn’t really enjoy it.
