Like most from this brewery it is almost like an extract brew. It has some nice roasted notes but is otherwise un-memorable. Rune (12760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2012
500ml bottle by the courtesy of Finn. Clear rosewood coloured body. Rocky, dense, beige head that recedes slowly, leaving fragile lacing behind. Burnt dark malts to the nose, notes of cardboard. Mild smoked malts in flavour alongside dark bread, mid-sweet, on a backbone of roasted bitterness. Rather thin on the swallow and easy to drink. Not bad at all (Tromsø, 24.02.2012).

pours a very dark brown colour with an elusive foam; aroma of caramel with strange vegetal notes; sweet and light-bodied with a solid carbonation; no bitterness and a short and quite watery caramelish aftertaste thewolf (12594) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2006
Almost completely black, but lets in a ruby-red flicker of light. Dense creamy head. Aroma is peppery, roasted and with some caramel. Low to medium carbonated. Taste is filled with caramel and roasted tones. Some smoke is in there as well, and so is a touch of final bitterness. kevnic2008 (11996) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2012
Poured a dark brown with a thin brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and hops.

Black, frothy tan head, sweet malt aroma, hints of roasted malt, thin body, roasted malt flavor, a touch of roasted malt bitterness, just a little essence of chocolate after it warms
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 5/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Bottle: Virtually almost as black as coal, quickly vanishing espresso-like foam; shy liquorice nose with some traces of alcohol and a tinge of fruitiness; malty flavour, leading to a dry, liquorice ending, low carbonation; not unpleasant, but quite "dead"; a quality , which seeems to typical for the Neuzelle brews......
