Sample Brewery 2/27/10-Pours a hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of malt. Taste of malt, caramel, and citrus. This medium bodied brew was different but still tasty.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at The Livery.
Pours a very dark amber color with a thin off white head that recedes quickly without leaving much of anything behind. The nose brings a pretty large amount of sweet malt and a touch of light roast. Some continental hops in the background. The flavor is too sweet and offers malt with a moderate hop balance. Too thick and almost chewy. The malt and hop balance is a bit out of whack. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Too thick a beer and not enough flavor. Not very impressed.
Serving type: on-tap

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark rusty brown with decent bright white head that dies to a film, clings and laces decent. Aromas are lightly sweet malt, a bit darker overall, faint hoppy presence. Initial mirrors this with a bit of honey sweetness, a bit watery, darker sugars, fainy fruity and light bitterness on the backend. This is a mellow darker beer, light yet flavorful$ a bit lacking in body. Ok.

FoBAB 08. Didn’t really seem like a Dunkel when I had it, barrel aging might have changed some things a bit. Pours a dark brown with a thin head. Some sweet malt. Barrel aging added some funky aroma and flavor, which is solid.

Fobab VI. Pour is nice looking dark brown, thin head. I don’t really get aggressive hops, but this is the barrel aged version. Nice and tart with some funk. Big caramel malt body with vanilla in the nose. Pretty decent beer, but a Dunkel? Naw. Good.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 Very dark pour, amber in color, with a moderate caramel and citrus nose. The sweet bread maltiness is balanced by the continental floral/herbal hop bitterness. Pretty drinkable and refreshing on this hot summer day.
