500 ml bottle kindly shared by gunnar. Clear chestnut with a creamy light brown film leaving excellent lacing. Nose rich with dry hops and dried fruits. Inviting. Sweet, fruity, toasted and a balanced bitterness. Gentle alco warmth and a medium to full body. Smooth to drink with a light syrupy texture. Nice one!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at local tasting, kindly shared by gunnar. Dark brown colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops. Hoppy flavour, fruity and resinous notes. Some alcohol in the finish. Has not much in common with a German dunkel, nor dunkelweizen / weizenbock, but this is a good beer all the same.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle, mybrewerytap.com. A surprisingly strong, spicy hop aroma. Beautiful rich mouthfeel and body that actually belies the high abv. Sherry, pine and hop resin flavours combine very well and there’s some late chocolate. The alcohol is subtle and hits late on, with just a small amount of heat. Excellent stuff and not what I was expecting.

This is great - the dark malts really work well with the yeast flavours. Mouthfeel is fantastic and brings everything home. Awesome
