3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much aroma, no head, light body. It's surprisingly pretty drinkable. Beer came with beer of the month delivery. Worth a try.

Eastside dark is a treat! It pours a very dark brown as the scent of malts tickle your nose. Has a short lived head on it though. It has a semi-heavy nutty taste to it mixed with what tastes to be a few spices. Only complaint here is that it could use a little more carbonation to it.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Medium dark brown with orange highlights nd a thin tan head that reduces to a patena of whispy bubbles. Aroma is tinny caramel, not appealing at all. Flavours are sweet fruity caramel with mild biterness in the finish. Too carbonated.

Bottle from PW pick a sixer. Pours brown with thin head. Definite taste of rich chocolate but really don’t taste the hops at all....nice and smooth but a bit thin. Good but not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz ($2): Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and that distinct lager aroma. Taste is very mellow, with pretty much no bitterness. It is very easy to session. It ain’t very complex, but it is plenty pleasant to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cola colored with off-white fine head. Roasted coffee beans, toasty with some molasses, initially sweet with bread dough and hints of cotton candy. Easy drinking, nice feel, well balanced....not bad at all....but nothing really stand out to make it great. A good Dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Pizzeria Piccola at the MKE airport. Pours brown with orange and reddish tines. Very little lacing. Aroma has chocolate with faint caramel/faint grape. Taste is of choco/caramel with dark fruits. Later nuttiness comes into play. It becomes more sour through the glass. A bit thin. Finishes sour and sweet, fairly short. It was interesting for a dunkel. It was overall not that interesting, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice aromas of sweet caramel, coffee, alchohol and chocolate. Nice balance of sweetness with dark roasted flavors. Hints of coffee, vanilla, and roasted barley. Dry finish that is well balanced sweet and bitter. More characteristic of a sweet stout but very good.
