3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Over ripe bananas unsuccessfully try to hide behind raisins, heady winey malts and figs. Much more mild then the nose lets on. Toffee, figs, hints of earthy hops, more raisons, grape skins, and white bread. Finishes very clean with just a hint of dough.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Quite quite good--extremely complex, layered, rich brew. Combines the caramel and toasted nuts (a tad much of the former perhaps) of a regional dark beer with the yeastiness of the Birzai style, and adding in the warming alcohol and spice of a German bock. Outstanding beer
