3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber brown with thick off-white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and raisins. Flavor matches well and makes for a pretty nice brew. Definitely a great beer and serves a great purpose.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark red brown with medium long lasting beige head. Aroma is dried figs, maybe dates, caramel and syrup. Taste is sweet (but not too sweet) with a little bitterness and very natural carbonation induced sourness. Velvety smooth mouthfeel with dates finish. Overall very nice. Comparable with the doppelbock but less intense, less strong.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark ruby brown from the bottle. Clear, with a frothy tan head that quickly subsides. Aroma has strong caramel and roasted notes with evident toffee. Taste is bittersweet with rich roasted malt flavors. Lots of toffee. Could be a bit more robust, and no exotic notes here, but is still a pleasant sipping companion and quite good for the style. Good stuff.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a sparkling reddish brown body with a tan disappearing head. Rich aroma of bread, wine, dried plumms, malt, with notes of caramel. Taste starts with plumms, later joined by dark bread, chocolate and caramel. A bit metallic. Finish bittersweet of dark bread. Medium body with a thin (a bit sticky) texture and lively carbonation. Pleasant to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a half-litre bottle. Pours a medium brown. Light-medium carbonation with minimal head. Toffee biscuit nose. Wet mouth feel, a tad of more toffee, but mild. We Americans try to rip this off with our ambers. (my first true dunkel). Pleasant for lack of better word. a drinkin’ all day beer if I didn’t have to work tomorrow.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ar- light toast, some caramel, toffee, no hop aroma
Ap- dark reddish brown with a weak off white head
Fl- more complex than the hofbrau, subtle malt sweetness up front, hint of caramel, dark fruits, toast
Mouthfeel, med-light bodied, well carbonated, a touch viscous, nice finish
Ov- while more nuanced than the hofbrau I like it slightly less. It good just doesn't really stand for anything.
