3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Eulogy. Clear medium dark amber pour with a pillowy head. Lots of lace. Not much aroma. Gentle sweet burnt sugar malt flavors. Barley clear toys. Smooth gentle malt notes. Creamy finish. Some bitter throughout for balance but mostly a subtle sweet light vanilla bourbon caramel brown. Worth trying but not exceptional.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. This is a good Biere de garde. It is malt forward with caramel and slight toffee, there is a lager musty quality. There is a firm bitterness in finish. A solid beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL. Pours a clear, amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready with a bit of a candy note. Some cherries, a few esters, a light yeasty spice, and a bit of a nutty caramel. Flavor is similar. Sweet malts with a candyish bread, slight nutty caramel, fruity esters, a bit of a cherry, and a light yeasty spice. Touch of herbal bitterness as this finishes smooth and clean with a slight dryness. Medium length aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. Sweeter and bready with a light yeasty spicing and a bit of a fruitiness. Nicely made and easy drinking. Decent.
