50cl bottle pours a murky cherry cola color with some thin, off white head. Nose is pumpernickel bread, some fruit cake, a little dried cherry, some straw, a little light smoke, a little mushroom. Flavor is a nice mix of dried fruit, raisin, dried cherry, and malt, wheat, straw, bread crust, earthy. Slightly sweet finish. Solid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn 50cl: Pours muddy dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is light banana, spice, and some slight roast. Taste is too light on anything. Everything sort of just blends into everything else, without anything being distinctive. Neither the dark side, nor the hefe side really shine. I was quite underwhelmed by this.

Bottle traded with McTapps & MichaelBruch, shared with MiP. Pours cloudy copper brown with stable beige head. Clear, sweet aroma of malt, caramel and banana. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt, caramel and a touch of banana. Mildly bitter and sourish aftertaste. Decent but not extraordinary.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from some beer store in Gräfelfing. Slight gusher that pours a deep brown colored body with a slight ruby hue. Finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat nutty and lightly sweetened with touches of bready caramels, a light wheat note, some toast, and a few banana esters. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, somewhat grainy and bready caramels with a light wheat note, a light toastiness, banana, a few other fruity esters, and a touch of spicing. Finishes clean and very lightly roasted before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Thinner body and a somewhat active, medium-high, soft carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkel. A touch thin, but not bad.

Kein großes Bier füwahr. Nett im bananigen Bereich mit etwas Säure, aber alles in allem dumpf und gar leicht metallisch. Ganz ok.
