3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is nice. Surprisingly full flavored. Aroma has roasted malt and toasted bread. Dark brown color with low carbonation. Flavor is roasted grain. They did a good job with this. Great body, especially for the style.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I didn’t even notice this was a green bottle with no date until I got home. What an atrocious trainwreck this turned out to be. Poured copper with a sudsy tan head. The aroma is of malt balls, some buttery diacetyl, stale fruits and foot odor. Against my better judgement I took a drink just of the sake of covering all aspects of a rating. Medium body with light carbonation. The taste starts horribly sour and malty. The finish has much of what was on the aroma only quite astringent and the added bonus of spoiled cooked veggies. This was awful, even for a drain pour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew poured a large head of finely sized very light brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body was transparent brown colored and carbonated. The aroma was nice with caramel malt and brown beer malt notes. The mouth feel was smooth slightly tingly and finished very mellow. It had a mild brown beer flavor that was malty and just a little thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brown with perhaps a touch of rudy. Head seems to be a bit fizzy with a beige hue. Light caramel and dough aroma. Somewhat sweet and unassuming. Drinkable and somewhat forgetable.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sold in a green bottle, but was not the least bit skunky. The aroma was of lightly roasted malts, hops, and was a little beefy. Tea coliored pour with a thin off white head. Relatively weak flavor with some hops and roasted grains detectable. Uncooked pasta finish ringed with some lower quality hops, very subdued though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep caramel in color with a creamy off-white head, this has a solid molasses and caramel aroma. The flavor is lightly roasted malt, caramel, a touch of ripe apple, and a nutty bitterness. Pretty decent dunkel.

A fairly rich aroma with a bit of molasses. Quite light and easy, but has a good sweeness in the finish, maybe a hint of chocolate. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle best i’ve had from this company. Pours a light brown body with some malty caramel aromas. A little like a bock but more like a pils. Not bad for shop rite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark chocolate ruby brown with a large tan head. The aroma is very fruity with some cherries, brown sugar, honey and fig. Almost like a dopplebock here. The flavor was smooth and balanced and it finished medium bodied with a full mouthfeel. This was a good dunkel!
