3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear cola brown with a fairly thick and fluffy pale buff head. Malty aroma has caramel and fruity undertones. Flavor is malty at heart, with subtle toasty and fruity notes and a hint of caramel. Texture is average, but it goes down well. If not terrific, certainly drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty average dunkel, nothing really stands out with this offering. The body and flavors were a bit on the lighter side. There was a good bready malt flavor with a touch of hoppiness.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep clear mahogany brown. Off white head that starts about a half in or so and levels to film like cover. The spicy caramel malt aroma is subtle. Sweet rich toasted on the tongue. Has a spicy Earth like quality. Has a pleasantly and sweet after taste. Leaves me wanting more and I do. I’d certainly recommend this one.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very sweet. Dark. Sour. Something just doesn’t fit. It kind of coats the tongue and that’s not good. Looks better than it tastes.
