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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is toasted bread and yeast with a light roasted coffee note and some cola late. It pours a dark, clear oily caramel color topped by an off white, beige foam head and it retains a medium ring with a light wisp surface and no lace. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter blend. The medium light body has a fuzzy carbonation and an oily texture. Figgy and roasty coffee flavors come through with a light toffee flavor late. It’s clean and crisp with a mineral water finish and has a nutty and roasted aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear mahogany. Off white fizzy head. Slight roasted malt aroma. Flavor is medium dark roasted malt. Starts slightly sweet but has a drier finish. Palate is medium light; the effervescence is again s feature - it effects the overall palate. Overall, a nice dark session beer, light on hops. Lager.
