4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0.5 liter mug from a cask (Huber Haus, Omaha) - This beer is not a typical fest beer as most people would consider it. Most fest beers I have had are either in the realm or a Märzen or a light, sweet beer. This baby is a complete caramel malt bomb, but I love it. This ranks in my top ten beers ever consumed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml flip-top bottle from Wasana’s in Germany. Pours a deep ampber clear color with an almost orange tan head large lasting head. A great looking beer. Aroma is sweet caramel, fruit and candy. Taste is more subdued and mellow. Taste of over ripe fruit and cream. Palate is smooth and mellow then ends dry. A very unusual beer.

Nice find here. Pours dark amber with thick beige, fluffy head, and head sticks around. And besides the appearance, a damn good beer to boot. Malty, fruity aroma, hint of spice.Taste is rye, pumpernickel, hints of fruit (apples and citrus), complex. I really enjoyed this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big beige head of fine bubbles. Clear dark amber body. Strong, sweet malt aroma, with hints of licorice. Taste is initially dark malts, followed by a strong taste of treacle/licorice with a dry smoky finish. A very good beer, and quite interesting.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the Huber Haus. Dark amber red with a thin white head. Interesting combination of malt and roasted aroma. The flavor is thick and malty for a marzen. This is abeefy beer with a nice residual hop bitterness. By no means the top ten as that moron nickspies stated, but a really great beer nonetheless.

Bottle, from Vroni’s in Bamberg. Red bronze, good white head and gentle condition. Big sweet malty mouthful of wort and toffee. Some slight hoppiness, gentle roast barley notes and dominant sweet toffee in the mouth which lingers into the finish with a touch of hop bitterness to balance things up.

From gravity at Holy Grale. Aroma of pumpernickel, almonds and some toast. Appearance is amber brown with thin white head. Flavor is quite almond-centric with some bread; the finish is slight toasty and minimally herbal. Palate is oily and soft. A delight.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, chestnut-brown colour with a medium-sized foamy off-white head. Sweet roast-malty aroma with caramel and dark bread and a tinge of herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Dry, roast-malty taste with chewy notes of caramel on a soft herbal background. Almost dry, malty and moderately hop-bitter finish. Pleasant and rounded brew.
