3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Clear ruby lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, lightly-tanned head. Good, small, creamy retention. The nose is of toasted malts, caramel and praline with just a splash of port. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor is bursting-at-the-seams with malty heartiness and goodness – caramel, buttery toffee and praline. Balanced nicely by measured hop bitterness - not so much as to detract from the beer’s lavish maltiness. The finish is a continuation of the rich, malty flavor that transforms and fades into a nice light bitterness that gently coats the tongue and hangs out for a while.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is right for the style with slightly toasted caramel malt and hops but it’s not a great smell. The appearance is deep amber with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma but has both paper and astringent hops. The palate is fizzy. Overall I am not impressed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep rum raisin nose with hints of chocolate. Deep reddish brown color, medium thick head with nice lacing. Rich malty cola sweetness with a perfect clean bitter balance. Solid carbonation, medium body, rich mouth feel, spicy clean malty finish. This is a fantastic beer, maltiness is deep and rich, but not cloying, spiciness and balance make this one not to miss!

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crystal clear, dark ruby with a stable off-white head. Very mild aroma, slightly malty. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Slightly sweet, caramel malt flavor with spicy notes and a slight warmth on the finish from the alcohol. A little hop bitterness balances this one really well.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great beer although darker than any maibock I’ve ever had and against the common standard to my understanding. Poured with a medium off white head and some lace. Color is mahoganey. Aroma is malty and caramel. Flavor is like aroma but big on the caramel and a bit of bittlerness in middle and end. Very good body and carbonation. Super easy drinking. Great finish. Session beer.
