Dark with red highlights. Aroma is roasty, has some toast and some mellow citrus. The flavor is lighter than the aroma leads on, with some nice caramel and honey notes, slight spice and citrus, molasses, bit of oats and medium roast coffee. Nice

Bottle to pint glass. Pour is a clear ruby brown with a finger of beige head and ok lacing. Aroma is oats, honey, molasses, and sweet cream. Flavor is honey, oats, and malts. Mouthfeel is thin and feels like there is something missing overall. Ok beer.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours with a huge amount of carbonation. The aroma is ashy and very subtle. The flavor is similar, not much going on. Excessively dry finish. I am certain that there is an infection in this bottle. Bland. Footbalmed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown color with red highlights. Large foamy burlap colored head slow disappears to leave a small bubbly cap. Sweet roasted malt nose. Notes of birch beer and faint molasses. Tangy sweet dark malts with more dark sugars fairly light. . Slightly spicy, like mace or cardamom. Finish has some residual dryness from the honey. Despite the oats, the body remains light. Interesting and tasty. Damn good "Kottbusser".

Dark transparent brown color with small light brown head. Aroma is very nice, berries and grapes, with cocoa malts and sweetness. Flavor is very roasty, slight cocoa, with nut brown ale flavors and chocolate. Complex and balanced. Really interesting beer

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours reddish brown with a huge foamy head. In fact, the head is most of the glass. I sense an issue here. Smells of molasses, light smokiness, and earthy malts. Usually a combination I am very partial to. In this case, however, the beer itself is somewhat thin, and way overcarbonated. Think molasses soda with double the carbonation of normal soda. The flavor is not at unpleasant, but the bubbles are, and likely not planned. I’d like to try a fresher bottle.
