3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great hazy brown coloured body with a thick, two centimetre tall deep tan head. Aroma of very nice yeast, bananas, malt, coriander seed, bubble gum and even more yeast - nice and fragrant throughout. Medium-bodied; Earthy malt up front with a hint of nutty and earthy wheat with a good yeast strain flavour showing some spicey complexity but the typical german feel - all with a good deeper, nuttier flavour that you’d expect from a dunkles. Aftertaste shows a good level of sweetness, some mild earth and toffee, a hint of banana and a plenty amount of yeast and spicey characteristics. Overall, a nice dunkles with a good profile and a great body. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 25-April-2013 for US$1.76 sampled at home in Washington on 09-September-2013.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl oz / 355ml bottle into a Blue Moon glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Mild toasted malt. Not much else going on. Nice, but boring.
Appearance: Hazy dark brown body with a sparse white head.
Taste: Moderate spice package; some cloves, but the toasty malt is present as well. A nice flavor, but it would be better if it were a little more bold, I think.
Palate: Light-medium body. Pretty short, malty finish.
Overall: It is a good beer. It is a nice balance between the malt and the spice. I just wish it were a little more bold.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep ruby hued burnt caramel, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Musty caramel corn on the
nose.   I have had this one a while, so the nose may be different than normal.   Soft sweet pale wheatiness on the
tongue, with some toffee or caramel corn like background.   No real banana or bubblegum, more so some musty toffee
sweetness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pale toasty wheaty finish.   Nothing off, or unclean, but what I can
imagine as an odd changing of Dark Hefe flavors to this caramel or toffee background.   Interesting.

Out of the bottle from Uptown. Pours a very dark color that is almost orange or red. It has a very nice off white head that is very frothy. The taste is malty with a slightly fruity taste.
