look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass.

A: Pours a beautiful dark amber to brown color forming a a big, thin bubbled beige head. Good retention. Forms a lot of small and spotty lacings in the glass

S: Sweet in the nose. Strong notes of caramel, caramel malts, crystal malts, roasted malts. brown bread, earthy yeasts. Flowery hops. A bit metallic end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of roasted, caramel, caramel malts and crystal malts. Toffee. Very bready and crispy. Notes of grassy and flowery hops in the end. Slightly metallic

M: Medium to low body. Medium carbonation and a delicious brown bread aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Great German Schwarzbiers even for the not big fans of this style, like me
