3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: 11.2 oz. green bottle, served in a steidel.
Appearance: Develops a one finger head that goes down into a thin ring. It’s dark caramel colored.
Smell: The aroma es mostly of sweet malt, nothing else.
Taste: The malt sweetness is very dominant and present but not cloying.
Mouthfeel: It feels a bit watery and smooth. It has medium carbonation and it’s easy to drink because of the sweetness.
Overall: Complex enough so as to not be boring, but easy enough to drink so as to not discourage drinkers not accustomed to this type of beer. It manages to be very sweet but balanced, not overwhelming. A very well made brew.

Pretty decent. Gentle malt with very little bitterness. Not hoppy. Relatively smooth but not anything really great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a plastic cup at Lantana Oktoberfest. Dark color, small head. Aroma is dark malts, caramel, candy sweetness, bread, and spices. The taste didn’t match the aroma in boldness. Kind of watery and weak flavors. Some maltiness. Medium light body, slight bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber coloured, brownish medium-sized fluffy head, longer lasting; moderate malty nose (traces of caramel, roasted malts, molasses); sweet malty beginning, moderate sweet flavour; quite full bodied; distinctive sweet malty aftertaste, with a tinge of bitterness. A very good Dunkel, pleasant and decent....
