3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at NERAX. Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head. Huge hot malt aroma, with lots of heavy caramel and toffee. Flavour is similarly robust, with huge toasted malt, caramel and toffee taste. Virtually no hop character. Hot alcohol finish, smooth and full bodied. My second from the brewery, and both have been big, intense and delicious sweet beers.
Bottle. Clear golden color with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, a bit sugary, malty, a touch roasted. Taste is chocolate, earthy, a bit brown sugar again. Silky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Too sweet for me. Thomas_W1 (1012) - Rastatt, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2017

Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a fluffy white head, the aroma is light, the taste is medium bitterness with a dry bitter finish. mkel07 (6546) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2017
080417. This is possibly the best German beer that I have had and it deserves high praise indeed. A rare find at the new Malt Traders at Southbank I enjoyed this bottle while people watching. The beer looks great when poured into a glass and has a deep toffee colour and a large fluffy head of sweet smelling foam. It would be a shame if you drank this beer straight from the bottle as it deserves to be poured into a glass. The aroma is full on malt with a sweetness thrown into the mix. Like the aroma the flavour is malt heavy and fills the mouth with a wonderful toffee and vanilla flavour. The finish is like everything else about the beer - very good.

Klares rötliches Bernstein mit reichlich Schaum. Malzig, Röstaromen, Karamell, Vanille, nussig, sehr süffig. Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - NOV 14, 2016
Dark ruby with fast vanishing head. Aroma is lots of nuts, some roast, maybe raisins and some syrup. Taste is good malty sweetness with a too crispy and unsmooth sourness, quite much umami, medium roast bitterness. Nice drinkability without being too easy. Full body, medium finish. Nice, despite the unsmoothness. TAR (2802) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Light chestnut. Puffy, sticky white foam. Enticing aroma of anise, almond, hazelnut, earth and toffee. Relaxed carbonation. Complexly malty on initital sip, with a medley of toffee-glazed nuts, rich hay, honeyed biscuits and creamed coffee. Big Munich punch. Immaculately clean attenuation enables the luscious, artfully placed flowery Hallertau to flourish and pillar the center. Finishes sassy and airy, with minerals paving the way for a flavorsome fusion of nutty, creamed coffee malt and a spicy-floral punch of hops. A clean and lovely dunkel that weaves subtlety with complexity. Lele (562) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 4, 2016
ASPETTO: marrone abbastanza scuro, limpido. Schiuma marroncino chiarissimo, fine, abbondante e non molto persistente. AROMA: maltato e frutta secca predominanti. GUSTO: vira un po’ più sul dolce, ma è comunque equilibrata. Maltato e frutta secca (soprattutto nocciola). Leggerissimo marzapane se si lascia riscaldare la birra. Una bella scoperta, non è trascendentale, ma abbastanza appagante. Grzesiek79 (4483) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo maladna barwe rubinowo brazowa, spora i trwala piane, przypominajaca te z Ciemnych kozlakow. Aromat orzechowy. W smaku orzechy laskowe, suszone winogrona i sliwki, troche karmelu. Dobre.
