3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Wolskis. Head dies a little too quickly. Otherwise the malty, light chocolate flavor shines through. Toast warm yet not dry. This is a dark beer you could chug if you had to (rare among darks). Mouthfeel is medium-heavy but not burnt coffee like many dark beers. PK Like!!!!

Malty but thin with a bit of chocolate and some coffee. Dunkel that doesn't do too much to differentiate.

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.
