3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and molasses. A dark bown pour with rubby highlights, no head or lacing. The taste is very malt forward. Roasted malts, a touch of bitter coffee, and a molasses finish. A grainy aftertaste remains. Medium to med-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice robust roasty flavor up frontwhich disappointingly gives way to sweet molasses finish. I also wish it had a little more body.

Dark murky brown color with tall tan head. Dark fruit and brown sugar aroma. Taste - rich dark fruits, vanilla, roasted malts, dark chocolate, cherry cough syrup. Very rich and very little carbonation. Itís ok, but a tad cloying and Iím not a big fan of this.

12 oz. bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours a deep fig brown with a small tan head. Aroma of metal, dark fruits, chocolate, and toasted nuts. Flavor of dates, chocolate, dry toast, and earth. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, earthy mouthfeel. Decent but I normally like this style better.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, hints of roast, touch of earth, hints of dark fruit and red wine, some slight roast. Taste is a mix of sweet dark fruits, some roast, touch of cocoa powder, hints of a wine like note, some sweet caramel, toffee, finishing sweet. It isnít terrible, but it is pretty sweet.

Toffee, chocolate, and fruit. Leinenkugelís, after nearly 150 years, is finally starting to get creative with their brews. Itís good, but the fruity aftertaste is slightly unappealing.
