4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5 bottle courtesy of a German colleague. Reddish brown, clear. Tick beige foamy head. Nose of coffee, German roasted malts, BBQ. Liquor feel in the mouth, sweet notes of amber malts with a hint of nuts. The hops invade the palate short after. The body is round and complex and the notes above develop after every sip. The best Paulaner (surprisingly)!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle poured into pint glass. Bottle purchased in Denver. For an above 7% ABV this is really good. I was also concerned about the transport and UV exposure, but the dark bottle did as it was asked. Highly recommended.

Rich chocolate, dark plum, roasted flavors. Very tasty and rich brew, almost feels like an Abbey dubbel.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Drunk from a snifter and poured from a bottle brought back from Munich. Shared with family. The main distinctive taste in this beer is that of flaxseed, which manifests also in the aroma. It also tastes vaguely of wheat. It has a cheese-like aftertaste. The beer was unlucky enough to be followed by the Andechs Doppelbock Dunkel. On its own, I may have scored it higher. I have tried to compensate fairly for the circumstances. I would pair it with, I believe, certain scenes from Aladdin, or perhaps rice.
