2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Millrose Restaurant. Small tan head with good retention, transparent orange body, no carbonation observed, and very little lacing. The aroma was sweet, caramel, malty, and toffee notes. The flavor was malty, caramel, sweet, hint of chocolate, toffee, hint of nuts, and semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel was tingly and this is a thin, light bodied beer. A rather boring Dunkel as it lacked real character and is easily forgettable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated dark copper brown colored body. The weak aroma was malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and brown malt. Not one that I would buy again.

Draught: Aroma of caramel and malts. Poured copper in color with a small white head that lasted. No lacing. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor of some barley and malts. Light body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Another bad beer at Millrose.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampler at Millrose. Pretty much your standard ’dark" beer. Decent smell, with a bit of yeast to it Noticed an alcoholic burn. No chewy roastiness. This place doesn’t seem to want to serve anything that would frighten its yuppie clientele.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep copper over pale mahogany, a small, tan head leaves slippery lace. Roasted grain aroma, almost burnt, with light caramel and milk chocolate. Flavor is mild sweetness along with thorough nuttiness and more chocolate notes to finish. Carbonation left an inappropriate crisp feeling and a gassy aftermath.
My bottle sez this is contract brewed by Capital Brewing, so it would be fun to sit down with this next to Capital’s Munich Dark.
