I picked up this 0.33l bottle at Liebick in Germering, near Munich, on 24SEP13. Having made it safely home, it is time to sample. Has a best by date of 08FEB14. Label has ingredients as water, pale and dark barley malts, hops, top fermenting yeast". Also says "Kräftige, blumige Hopfennoten; nichts für Warmduscher". Not for pussies!! Love it!
Poured into a small tulip, the color is an opaque, motor-oil-like brown. Head sits at about 1/4", and is mocha colored and frothy. Lacing is decent, too. The aroma has a lot of roasty notes and pithy hopping. It goes over the tongue quite nicely, and the body is a smidge thicker than medium.
Flavor has some bitter dark choco and roasty coffee action, but soon takes a sharp turn into hop-ville. It is a bit pithy here, too, plus being quite citrussy. It has some grapefruit and is piney and resiny. The hoppage really coats the palate and lingers long and hard. I wish I had bought more than one bottle; this is very solid BIPA. Prosit!
