UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 liked this better the second time. full rye aroma. burnt raisin wine. tasted quite citric and hoppy - probably from buying it close to the source. a little syruppiness in the finish is the only real blemish

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The bottle looks okay, the beer in the glass also. Tastes malty and dry, somehow not really balanced, not very drinkable. Not a good beer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swing-top by 04.08.12. Nose is lightly dusty, earthy, with caramel and light chocolate, malt. A very pretty, shady ruby-amber with snail-slow carbonation and rocky tiny-bubbled tan head. Nutty taste, low roast with (slight) milky chocolate, malty but actually relatively dry for a Dunkel. Light body, coating. Relaxing.
