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!

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.

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.
