500 ml bottle just slightly past the declared BB date (06. 2012). Dark coppery-brown body with garnet tint and good clarity gets overlain by rather thin light-tan head that dissipates. Sweet aroma of caramel, chocolate, bread crust and nutty notes transfers to the flavor. The beer that lacks any inappropriate intense roasted flavors starts malty but never gets cloying and finishes dry with hop-bitterness and mild nutty aftertaste.
Creamy with sufficient carbonation teasing the palate. Very good.
