3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit of a complex aroma, some fruityness from the malts as well as % and some mustiness. Very foram, it lasts a long time too. Clear and quite dark. The malts are what comes through in the flavours, then the % and hops, then some yeast at the end. This has a pretty solid flavour but somehow seems subdued, like it could have been just a bit more bold but was toned down. Nice fade out of flavours, nothing out of place.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a deep, cloudy chestnut brown color with a thick, frothy off-white head that heavily laces the glass. Aroma of toasted sugars, plums, caramel malts, nuts, wheat, and some earthy, citrusy hops. Flavor of toast, brown sugar, nuts, mixed malts, plums, and dark grains. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a wheaty mouthfeel enhanced by some fruit and sugar sweetness. Kind of dry on the finish. Pretty nice dunkelweizen.

Draft., poors dark brown. Light white head. Palate slightly rough and thin. The taste was slightly bland. Not my the best beer from this brewery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber brown, off white head, no lace. Low aroma of bananas, cocoa, and soft spices. Flavours match the nose, but as with most of Bayern’s brews, the palate seems weakly flavored. This wasn’t as anemic as their Dragon’s Breath, but it was still pretty disappointing.

Bottle thanks to Toby. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. The aroma is mostly a rich roasted nose, some chocolate and cocoa. A nice flavor; sweet dry chocolates, grainy, some light spicy hops. Enjoyable. Warm and full of flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown, medium sized beige head has decent retention. Aroma of dark fruit and dough. Taste is pretty sweet, lots of dark fruit again. The yeast gives some funk and the hops an herby balance to the sweetness. Very good beer and not even a hint of 7.5% alc. Thick texture, soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a dark brown color with a nice tan head. The nose is malty with some light roast and sweet wheat esters and raisin notes. The flavor has a thin impact with a sweet roasty note in the tail. Not very balanced, but the big body and high alcohol make for some exciting highs in the tail. Nice roast.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to jake65. Thanks buddy. Poured a dark and hazy burnt orange with a 1/2 finger creamy khaki head, fantastic retention. Left lots of lace. Aroma was lots of wheat, a tinge of caramel sweetness and some earthy hops. Drinks super smooth. Flavors consisted of some wheat, a bit of bready malts and some caramel sweetness. Excellently balanced throughout. This was surprisingly super refreshing. I may just have to look more into this style as I wasn’t too familiar with it coming in. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Hazy dark ale that displays burnt orange when held up to bright light. Mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Fantastic retention. The restrained aroma is deeply roasted with a whisper of caramel, but is somewhat nondescript. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Roasty, toasted grain flavor with light caramel. Crisp, malty finish. Not flashy, but well made and perfectly balanced. Bottle courtesy of jake65!
