3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: August 27, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. Pilsner... OCCASION: having returned from the annual soccer coaches’ meetings... APPEARANCE: dark red, almost burgundy body that supports a one-finger brown head... The head settles swiftly to a resilient ring and little else in the middle... too dark to track its effervescence... AROMA: candied, almost cherry cola in its hints... Slightly doughy, with minimal hops... PALATE: slightly warming, slick, almost flat... Dry, medium-bodied.... TASTE: an odd, vegetable flavor begins the profile... Grape, cola, some earthy elements that redeem the initial effect... Cough drop and raisin also are suggested... Not the compliment to the pilsner... OVERALL: Drinkable and steady, but not a beer that can be called a standout or a strong representation of its style... A beer that could use some dimension to its flavor profile... Peaty like scotch, in a strange way...

Tap @ Hotel Monaco. Dark brown with thin head. Smells like dark bread. Balanced- not too bitter or sweet.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep chestnut brown beer with a thin light tan head that subsides quickly into a surface film. Rather non-descript nose of nuts, brown sugar, and pumpernickel, but you have to search for all of it. Flavor is more pronounced with an initial candied nut sweetness with layers of caramel and brown sugar that is quickly set off by a smoky bitterness. Rather light on the pallet, this is a decent beer.

Dark brownish color with aromas of dark malt, light cocoa, some bread and a touch of caramel. Flavors follow suit decent funkel, liked it not crazy but true to style.

Pretty smooth from start to finish. Mostly a malty flavor, it's not overwhelming. It needs to be more flavorful to separate itself from average

Ansprechender malziger Geruch. Geschmack ist ebenfalls durch Malz geprägt: süßlich, getreidig, etwas röstig. Fast wie ein Alt aber weniger bitter.
