3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Note: I beg you to ignore the ticker-tasting ratings from bottles shared among a dozen people - such treatment of a well-crafted lager intended to be enjoyed as a full serving is shameful.
Rating: draft at Brauerei Lindenbräu
clear deep chestnut brown body with a small, finely-bubbled off-white head. patchy, long-lasting lacing. rich sweet toffee Munich malt nose with bright calcium and other minerals. exceptionally clean and fluid on the tongue with rich and soft carbonation. deep and layered toffee, caramel, sweet baked pastries, chestnut oil, acorns and other various toasted nut life. toasty and bready with a soft explosion of low carbonation across middle and back of the tongue. not an off-note to be found. lengthy clean and rich toffee malt finish.

TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Draught at Brauerei Lindenbräu, November 2012: Bronze with golden highlights. Creamy white collar of foam. Wonderfully fresh and focused aromas of dark bread, licorice, caramelized sugar, and a hint of fruitiness. Gracefully soft carbonation. Fully malty, initially, yet with a beautifully dry edge of breadcrust and toasted pumpernickel bread. Ongoing development of juicy melanoidin thoroughly inundates the palate. Very mild but not overly sweet or overripe fruitiness rejuvenates the malt with a raisiny tinge. Highly quaffable due to impeccable malt extraction and clean attenuation. Deep-seated toasty Munich clutch gives way to bouncier vanilla wafer cookie kissed with unsweetened chocolate and sweet haylike notions. Smidgeon of hazelnut and browned toffee further deepen the captivating malt complexity. Some cakey heftiness in there, as well. Lovely candylike bock presence shines through, though it doesn’t at all approach cloying levels. Raisin jam is tempered by a spicy alcohol glow at the throughly malty finish. A rather fine example of malt nuance and intricacy. Clean, resoundingly deep, well-structured and multilayered. A beer of exceptional detail.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark golden body and a small light beige head. The aroma is malty and biscuity, with some light fruityness and some hay. The flavor has some toffee and biscuits, as well as fruityness and a touch of bitterness. Medium body, quite dry, and a bit low on the carbonation. Lightly bitter in the end. Drinkable, but very boring and uninteresting. 130216
