3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half litre flip-top bottle, poured into pint glass. Amber colour, hazy, large foamy off white head. Retention was outstanding. Aroma was cranberry, malt and dark chocolate, really had to think of a Dubbel or Doppelbock. Tasted cranberry, malt, dark chocolate and molasses. Only drawback was that it was slightly watery. Hints of slightly smokey malt in the finish. Smooth texture, decent carbonation, slightly heavy body but it worked. Only the fact that it was slightly watery held it back from being truly outstanding.
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 0,5 l Bügelflasche. braunes Bier, cremeweißer, recht stabiler Schaum, akzeptable Gardine. Riecht sehr malzig, Karamell. Schmeckt malzig, Karamell, insbesondere der Schaum schmeckt wie Malzbier. kraddel (9323) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2017
Thnx to Aminatchime ! Pours clear, amber copper. Small white head. Smell is bit caramelly. Taste is sharp, very mild bitterness. Caramelly, tad sticky towards the aftertaste. Some residual sweetness. No real darker malts, or amber malty flavor. OK. Silvan7 (1279) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle @home. ramata, velata, schiuma minimale beige grossolana, poco persistente. aroma maltato, decisamente caramellato, miele e toffee. leggermente erbacea, tostato appena accennato. gusto amabile, al limite dello stucchevole, caramellato, zuccherino, maltato. Tostatura leggera, amaro da luppolo praticamente assente.
calda, più dei suoi 5% ABV, non ben amalgamati, corposa, bassissima carbonatazione, rotonda. Non del tutto equilibrata ma piuttosto armonica.

Pours dark amber from the bottle. Aroma is caramel with apple notes. Taste is an understated bittersweetness with some light watery notes on the palate. Body trends light, and the carbonation is mild. Finishes with the same pleasing caramel/apple mix that greets the nose. Despite the simplicity, a pleasant enough brew. Good. biir (1681) - Berlin, - AUG 6, 2017
Tap at Biermeile Berlin - clear mahagony color, small reddish head. taste is maltish, bit sourish, "like blood", according to my girlfriend. dry finish. Unusual, I like it.

Aus der Flasche im Franzl’s in Bodenmais getrunken. Gelbbraun mit viel feinem weißem Schaum im Glas. Malzig-würzig. Ungewohnt traditionell. tgrtnr (393) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2017
500 ml served in mug. Amber colour with big fluffy foam head. Malt, ripe banana, rye bread, a bit tobacco and vanilla, and some Weizen/Dunkelweizen aromas. Malty and slightly bitter, a bit watery. Soft carbonated, medium body. Watery texture. Very unusual and traditional beer. Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2017
Mahagoni with no head. Aroma is yeasts, banana, flour, nuts slight spices. Taste is a bit flat sourness, less bitter nuts. Easy drinkable, but not smooth, many bubbles. However very characteristic. Enjoyable. JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Nose malts fruits hops. Pale head. Pale copper color. Malty and fruity taste. Mild hops. Chopper925 (597) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle. Clear, beautiful amber color, thick foamy head. Caramel, bread and a cookie-like aroma. Light sweet, slightly sour and medium bitter taste. Very malty, caramel aftertaste. Carbonation is a little low for my taste, but plays well with the medium texture.
