3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddish brown with a large, quickly disappearing head. Aromas are smooth chocolate malts with floral hops. Flavours are more floral than expected with some chocolate malts, nuttiness and sweet roast character. Not quite as malty as I was expecting but still very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Given to me by a co-worker who recently went to Germany. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with an off-white head. Aroma is lightly malty and reminiscent of smoked beef jerky. Taste is sweet, malty, roasty with a nutty molasses character and a hint of sourness/roastinesss.Mouthfeel is full and round. Recommended.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I must say that everyone I drank with the night I tried this brew disagreed with me wholeheartedly. I found the nose to be overly yeasty wih a foot-like scent. Medium-bodied, I also felt like there was too much breadiness to the malty middle, and not enough hop character. Not enough roastiness for the style.
