3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, Der Pschorr. Translucent cherry-sapphire-copper in color with a booming tan sponge overlay creating a one-inch tall head. Delicious chocolate aroma sensations pull at mocha fudge brownies, mild malted chocolate balls and chocolate candy shells, along with a touch of anise amidst nutella to impart a signature smell of wholesome whole wheat. Cold, mild mannered chocolate flavor. Some cocoa soaked bran and the frothy top off of hot chocolate. Crisp, buttery mocha beans join a flavor akin to light, sink-your-teeth on arid tops of tiramisu and a corresponding, substantial chocolate tort layer underneath. Medium-bodied, crisp, but sly liquidity with a little fudgey underlay curling at the tongue’s crest post sip. Soft cocoa pitter-patter flip-flops with muted nutella and toffee accents.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber. Candy bock yet dry aroma. Reminds me of cherry licorice pipes I used to get at a candy store as a kid. Musty, wellies in a basement. Caramel melting into a sauce, poured over apples. Tingling carbonation. Metallic hints. Not bad as a basic "dark" German beer. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

Wonderful spring beer. Aroma is mostly grape. Deep malt flavour has a thin mouthfeel and refreshing fruitiness.

On tap at the Hessen Haus during the 2006 Crescent Moon Beer Bus Trip. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Malty roasted aroma. Strong caramel flavors. Maybe even the taste and sweetness of horehound candy. Mild palate. Interesting hop representation. I find this to be a very good bier.
