Draft at the Wurstfest. Glad I stayed with the HoffB and the HaSC before I had this one. a light bodied semi watery brew with seemingly added caramel coloring and caramel candy taste. Both in taste and color the dark fails. Watery body with a metallic and mercifully quick finish. Back to the HB for me for the rest of the evening. Head was a nice light beige. Blah

Bottle. Pours an almost cola brown, which was an ironic bit of foreshadowing, with a thin white head. Aroma of very sweet malt, and little else. The slight malt taste carries over to the mouth where it is joined with a good deal more soda like sweetness and an incredibly thin watery body. Finish is a bit of a letdown too, and features a slight metallic tang.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark red with minimal lacing. Aroma is of mild caramel and dark fruit. Flavor is creamy sweet, sort of like a milk-chocolate caramel blend with a smooth finish. Mediocre; flavorful but lacking complexity.

(Bottle). Sweet malty aroma, some hay. Dark reddish brown body, small light tan head. Flavor is sweet, sugary caramel. A bit too sweet.

poured a deep brown with a thin head. Upon tasting, it was entirely too sweet for my taste. Overpowering malt flavor and sugur sweetness. Not terrible, but not great either.
