3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle: Appearance is very dark but not like a stout, with no head, Aroma is malty, wheat and caramel dominate this aspect, Flavor is again a mix of caramel and wheat, not overly complex and somewhat light bodied, covers the 7.5% ABV pretty well though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium brown, with a tan head. Very smooth and drinkable, with notes of carmel and a touch of sweetness. The balance is good, and the flavor fairly complex. This is a new brew and I tried a sample at the Bayern brewery today, and then picked up a six pack at Worden’s in Missoula. Not widely distributed yet...hopefully it will be. Thumbs up.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a deep dark brown with light brown head. Some retention and lacing. Nose of tropical fruit, banana and candied caramel malts. The flavor is similar with the fruitiness dominating. A sligt hop twang in the finish before sweetness lingers on the palate. Nice but some of the fruitiness is surprising for the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 On tap at the PDX Green Dragon. Pours dark brown with a small khaki head. Fruity nose, banana esters, bready caramel malts, fruity hops. Flavors of banana and berries up front, good hopped finish to balance. Estery and crisp towards the finish, bit of a yeasty taste to it. I really enjoyed this one from Bayern.
