3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body with a ruby glow, steady beige head.
Toffee on the nose, undertones of sweet nuts and cocoa.
Moderate carbonation, medium body, slight sticky texture.
Tasty burnt toffee upfront, backed up with milk chocolate, nutty and subtle roasted malts. Hint of plum of a well-rounded finish.
Lovely dark lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Dark brown color, hazy, torbid, solid and fraught. Volumous, abundant head and of good duration. Braced cereals aroma, burned wood, dark resin. Stinging taste and much bitter one, turn out solid and powerful while it comes down in mouth. Decided, persistent end, perhaps a lot top heavy.

Tasted in Vienna. Color was a reddish amber. Aroma of roasted malt, bread, vegetables and caramel. Flavor of vegetable, caramel and as roasted as it gets for a beer in this area. A bit oxidized, but ok overall.

01/08 A 0.5 l bottle from Interspar Udine. It poured dark red to brown body with small brownish head. Nice dark malty aroma, some caramel, dark fruits and even chocolate. Flavor was nice as well, caramelly, slightly sugary and fruity. Unfortunately, watery, very thin bodied, with short sweetish and watery finish. Nice beer, if only had somewhat more body!
