3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BevMo in Fairfield, CA. Pours a brown color and smelled of roasted malt. I’ve usually a fan of roasty malt flavor, but I felt it was a bit unbalanced. I was expecting a little more sweet, but all I got was roasted nut flavor. Not great, but still pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown-amber color with beige head that quickly turns into a ring. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel. Taste is again dark chocolate, schwarzbrot, nutty, dry. Pure malts in the finish. Lively carbonation, nearly fizzy. Ayinger just knows how to brew their beers, also the beers I usually am not a fan of.
