(on bottle; superthanx to yogi)Came out as a dunkel with lightly bitter finishnotes; made the usual comments on color and fo forth. BUT, when I sat down, to drink the rest of the beer, it really changed my view of it. I had some peanuts and chorizo, while drinking and watching TV and the landknecht became a fantastic swll, for the sofa; I had a small party; all alone and with one beer; cheers yogi, it saved my evening.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle from Sparky, thanks again E!) Pours out a semi-clear reddish brown color with a towering cream colored head that settles to a nice medium cap with a lot of lacing. Really enjoyed being greeted with toasted grain, roasted nuts, cocoa (Co-Co Krispies cereal to be exact), and musty lager yeast. Not much else beyond that, but there doesn’t need to be when it’s this good. Somewhat reminiscent of a brown ale. Shades of Fitger’s Beaver Bay. Flavor doesn’t disappoint, with tastes of cocoa, toasted almonds, faint caramel sweetness, and toasted cereal grains on the finish which gently continues for quite some time. Mouthfeel is nothing short of perfect. Holy hell this is good.

What a good looking beer! Pours dark with an off white head that floats on top like cream! Beautiful! A sweet malty aroma and a dark brown color. A pleasant malty flavor with a touch of bitter on the back side. Great mouth feel. This was great beer!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep mahogany color with a thick light tan head. Aroma is caramel, bread, dough, and nuts. Taste is caramel, chocolate, cereal, and a quick finish. All of the flavor is very subdued. Not bad but not memorable either.
