3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear mahogany color with a huge off-white head. Sadly some cardboard on the aroma, caramel malts, faint herbal notes and toffee. Sweet ripe fruits, plums, caramel, sweet malts, some distant honey and molasses. Dry malty palate. Sweet and enjoyable but sadly feels a bit old and off.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
75cl bottle@TriState Tasting II. Tastes like a light and powdery Dunkelbock full of earth-trodden dry autumn leaves, slight peat, with virtually no taste evolution as it warms and a bit of an airy/hollow core where the yeast profile should be: quite soulless rendition of a Scotch ale for that hefty Braufactum price tag.
