Dark clear ruby-brown color with beige foam layer. Caramel and nut aromas with some roast notes in the nose. The taste has a thick, light gooey mouth feeling. Nut aromas with hints of chewing gum. Well balanced body with matching carbonation. Sweet, almost sticky aftertaste. biir (1681) - Berlin, - DEC 8, 2015

0.5 l bottle at Sheridan’s Pub, Zagreb. Dark brown with reddish tint, small off white to tan head. Raisins, caramel, dry fruits. Light body, nuts, caramel and raisins. Sweet, malty. Light sweet finish. Disappears quickly. Nothing special. aleigator (945) - GERMANY - NOV 15, 2015
Pours a clear hazelnut brown color, with a decent, fluffy white head, which holds up for ages.
Offers a distinct, rich, whole grain bread foundation, with a potato peel sweet hint to it. A whiff of copper and wood bark, together with heated hazelnut add a nice depth to the robust malt profile of the beer.
Has a lively carbonation, while the beer remains pleasantly drinkable throughout, with a malty refreshment to it. Drinks utmost smooth, with a coppery malt finish, while not giving up on its softness.
Begins with whole grain bread, which later on gets a toasty note to it, wrapped up by a soft minerality and dry earth. While maintaining its profound bread profile, malts add a toffee hint, gently balanced by wood bark and earth. Finishes with dextrose amped up malts and a coppery quality, while earth holds the overall sweetness pleasantly low.
I appreciate the beers focussed malt character quite a bit, maintaining its rustic earth and bread character till the end, while allowing subtle changes on the palate at the same time, adding necessary depth. This results in an easy drinking Lager with enough body to it to convince my palate.
