3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Austria Tasting.
Pours a very lovely deep ruby red with a small, frothy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet malty, rather toasted, a hint of minerals behind it. Medium carbonation, fat and lightly oily mouthfeel. Fat malty sweet flavour, toasted caramel, light nutty, some dryness. Kinda crisp with notes of red apples. Herbal and lightly mineral-ish is the fairly dry finish. Extremely drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Pours hazy dark amber-brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is nice caramel malt, bready and toasty, with dark fruit hints. Flavor is caramel malt, roast, plum, fig, and then...whoa...big-time metal! Iron and rust, maybe some dirty rock. The finish kills it. Medium bodied with metal present on the mouthfeel even. Feels hard. Couldn’t finish much of this. The metal is just overwhelming.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 on 12/30/09 (notes). Pours a hazy amber color with a smooth medium sized beige head that quickly disappears. The aroma was dark fruits, yeast, sweet caramel and light chocolate. The flavor was moderately sweet caramel, yeast, dark fruity and hints of chocolate. I didn’t know what to expect, but this was decent.

A brown beer that has a weird looking thin head. It is chocolate, fruit, sugar. It reminded more of a brown ale. A beer that is very easy to drink and made a nice dessert. I liked it.

Not a bad bock. Poured a very dark copper with an off white head. really sweet, malty nose. Taste was of very sweet malt, with a nice aftertaste. It wasn;’t that great, but I wanted another sip, and then another. Not bad. I’d drink it again!

Hazy brown in color. Smoke, caramel, malt on the nose. Smoke, flat, ash trey, chemical and metal flavors. As you might notice from the last two descriptors, I didn’t like this very much. Not so much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear amber/brown with a foamy light tan head that sticks to the sides of the glass. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, bread and nutty. The flavor is very malty with out being overly sweet, not really much bitterness to speak of and no alcohol taste. Medium to full body with mild carbonation and a thick lush mouth feel. Very good German style lager, lots of malt flavors and not too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Guess I’ll never learn. Opened a gusher near my desktop. Luckily a mess everywhere except the pc.Poured with a smallish tan head that settle to a light cover which lasted and a little lace. Aroma is toffee, malt, a little molasses and dark ripe fruit. Flavor’s like aroma and very malty sweet. Of course with a beer this sweet the body is very full and thick with good carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of medium to long duration with a bit of alcohol at the end.
