0.5 l bottle from ’Biermuda’, best before January 2017. Clear, dark red to brown with a medium large, foamy, stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly grassy and a bit roasty aroma of caramel, nuts, some straw and bread. Sweetish, malty, slightly grassy and a bit roasty taste of caramel, nuts, bread and some straw, followed by a short, slightly roasty, moderately grassy finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours chestnut in color from the bottle. A creamy head forms which subsides but lingers as whispy lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and dark chocolate. Taste is bitter dark chocolate up front and transitions directly into a strong sourness that carries into and dominates the swill. Despite the occassional floral note the hops do not quite persuade. The necessary bitterness is there but makes a stale almost acrid impression. Despite a promising start this one fails to develop beyond average.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0,5 l long neck bottle with the new clear label art design. A dark red brown with a light tanned head in the glass. Malty nose as expected. Taste starts very roasty malty, some sourness and hop bitterness in the background. Barrelwood in the aftertaste. Like a failed dark IPA. Strange.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1l bottle from the brewery. The beer starts malty-smooth. Not too sweetish, nice bittered. Earthy, hints of roast. Nice bitter-dark malty aftertaste, very dry there. Roasted dark bread, still easy to drink due to remaining hints of sweetness. Round and nice!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Richtig heftige Geschichte für ein Dunkel. Undefinierbare Säure verbunden mit, ich vermute mal Roggen, einem Getreidehintergrund, der nicht mehr schön ist. Blendet man das aus...nein, man kann nicht. Schäbiges Gebräu.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
1 l bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low creamy head and medium body. Aroma of acid and malt. Taste of malt, dark roasted barley, nuts, dark cherries, sourness and citrus. Quite malty-sour finish. Light and small body and character are to be found - not really a nice beer and long not as nice as expected after having some great beers of this brewery.
