3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Clear, deep copper with a large, tanned and firm, lacy head. Strongly toffeeish maltiness with earthy notes and caramel. Caramely-toffeeish, slightly sweet flavor with lots of berries and some dried fruit and milk chocolate, with slight ashiness and grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Gets better (plus less ashy and sweeter) when warm. Almost medium body with soft carbonation. A reasonably interesting and easily drinkable, very caramely-fruity dunkel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 v.2. Swing-top. Orange-amber and clear with a vanishing tanned-eggshell head. Unusual smell, herby with some cracker, thick bread, and dark malt. Chocolate and toffee, coffee beans, hoppy toast. Tastes much the same. Clean with a dry, dark aftertaste and a spicy middle. Actually, dryness everywhere, and firm bitterness. Sweet toffee and caramel, herby, and some of what I have come to call spaghetti funk. A thinking man’s beer. Big thanks to MoritzF! [3.6] More: after a second bottle, it’s obvious that my palate has expanded to appreciate this; while I had known it to be a masterfully made beer, full of character and layers, it was easier to admire than enjoy.[4.0]
