Stimmiger und voller Malzantrunk mit Bitterschokoladennoten, die im Mittelteil in den Hintergrund wandern. Würzig, intensiv malzig, passend herb. Dazu nun trocken schokoladig und grasig hopfig. Lang anhaltender, zugegebenermaßen aber zu trocken. Stimmig mit ordentlicher Intensität – gefällt. 8/11/12/12/6/12

The flavor is sweet and meaty, roasted and slightly burnt. Dark dried fruits and licorice as well as faint notes of ashtray. Some bitterness in the end. Full-bodied, nicely carbonated and quite dry. A beer with a nice aroma and even nicer flawor, one that would be nice as an all-nighter. 100812
