3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Slightly hazy, dark brown colour with a mid-sized, stable beige head. Aromatic nose of dark and toasted malt with toffee and a faint fruity touch. Initially sweet and moderately toasted malty taste with toffee and caramel; medium to light bodied, smooth an creamy textured mouthfeel, medium-dry, moderately malty, slightly bitter and shy hoppy, but most of all quite slim and short finish. Quaffable brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted coffeeish nose with some bittering hops.
Dark chestnut, brown creamy head with lace.
Taste has a nice roastiness to it, not overly strong though - balance is good.
Medium body - quick finish and some dustyness when exhaling.
The particular bottle I had was a swing-top version with a different label ("privat")and claimed to be a Naturtrübes Kellerbier - I never saw any yeast though and cannot confirm that. According to the homepage og the brewery they have done the same stunt for several of the beers in their normal product line, this will probably cause some confusion.
