UPDATED: DEC 25, 2011 Rated at Klosterbrau Nov 2011. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain, bitter chocolate), with notes of molasses, minerals, milk, black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Odd collection of aromas, but ultimately enjoyable. Decent balance.

Draught Black beer with some red highlights, dark coloured head, not very stable. Liquorice, jap nose, sweet, but not disturbingly so. Dry black grains taste, a bit of liquorice, but virtually no sweetness. A bit of carbonised flavour. A bit light and watery in MF, but no cloying or unrefined slickness. A real Bamberg speciality, well worh looking for. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2006
