3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: Brown color and not quite clear accompanied by a nice light brown head. The aroma was earthy like peat moss with a well-balanced flavor. The aftertaste seemed to be just right, not too sweet. Out of the ones I had, this one is the only one I might consider having seconds.

Source: San Diego, CA
dark brown, big tan head, slight floral hop aroma, rich malt flavor, good dose of chocolate malt, touch of bitterness only after it warms, too one dimensional
Source: wild wing
more complexity, notes of toasted malt
Words: Las Vegas
toasted malt aroma, good rich chocolate flavor with perfect sweetness and the light character of the wheat, a benchmark dunkle as would be expected from the controlled GB brewery
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 13/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a lovely cloudy brown with a rich head. Aroma is smoky and malty with a yeasty overtone. The lively flavor is rich, malty and smoky. This beer has an edge to it, but it goes down well with some yeastiness in the aftertaste. A good beer to finish a drinking session or to come after dinner.
