Bottle best by June 1, 2016, consumed Nov. 2015: Clear garnet. Fine but broken off-white head. Papery and waxy nose, with underlying prune juice, brown sugar, pumpernickel bread, chocolate, caramel and wet carpet. Discordant leaves a foamy residue on the palate. Opens with notes of overripe plums and medicinal characteristics. Poorly extracted malt predominates with paper and soggy cereal notes. Incessant gritty sugars greatly hamper drinkability. Finishes cola sugary with some cardboard and unwelcome raisiny flavors lingering. Zero discernible hops to help with balance. A fairly dirty and underattenuated (semi-worty, in this case) Franconian dark lager. Unpleasant.

Bottle best by June 2016. Lightly hazed dark maroon-brown body with a short tan colored head. Aroma is malt-dominant with notes of roasted grain, peanuts, dirty dish water, compost / soil, autolyzed yeast. Medium-light bodied, sweet and sharp with low bitterness and noticeable burnt grain astringency on the palate that tastes like burnt pancake batter, finishing slightly sour.

Lichtbruin bier met weinig schuim. Scmaak is licht rokig en licht caramel en zoethout, niet zoet. Erg goed bier. Gedronken op terras bij Schöngroundsee Pottenstein. Marheb (6334) - MontrÃ©al, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une onctueuse soupe caramélisée qui libère ses atouts comme la mélasse, cannelle, poivre et tire d’érable. Très pain et très moelleux avec une finale de chlorophylle amère. Plus sucrée que certaine mais avec la finale tranchante pour balancer.
