Würzig-brotiger Geruch. Im Geschmack malzig und würzig bis zur Mitte. Hier kommen bitterschokoladige Nuancen hinzu, jedoch ohne die nötige Stärke. Vielmehr ist der Verlauf eher gleichförmig. Daran ändert auch die Bitterlinie im Ausklang nichts. Nicht so ganz mein Fall. Test vom 6.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche yespr (45508) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2011

Bottle from Markgrafen Bambergplanky84 (3263) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
Beautiful dark amber color. Aroma of roasted malts, heavily roasted, but the aroma is mild, therefore appreciated. The body is medium-thin, the mouthfeel is dry; roasted malt and dark caramel flavor, never excessive, with correct bitterness, unfortunately also a sharp metallic note in the end. A good hybrid between a Schwarz and a Dunkel, surely appreciated by lovers of roasted flavors.
Bottle from NWAF, Manchester. Dark amber/red pour with a beige head. Light aromas of caramel, fruit and chocolate. Chocolate, dark fruit and some coffee flavours. Dry roast finish. Not bad. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2010

Pigs Ear. Clear dark brown beer. Small tan head. Typically smooth and fresh German beer. Minerally mild dark malt, smooth and slightly creamy. Smooth finish. Nice.
The beer in glass isdark brown with a beautiful dark reddish tinge. Smells sweethopy and malty roasty, slightly bready. Starts with lots of roasted malt, slightly sweet, and pretty decent bitter finish. On the one hand, it tastes like very strong, on the other hand, drinking is not absolutely inert and it is nice mild. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2010

Bottle. Sweet chocolate caramel with spicy grassy hops aroma. Reddish brown color with large head. Sweet chocolate caramel malt and light bitter grass hops flavor. Very nice - more like a dunkel than a Kellerbier. jfb (6270) - GERMANY - APR 5, 2010
