3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid medium brown with ruby highlights, off-white head and very nice lace. Aromas of caramel and toasted malt, grassy hops, hay and brown sugar. Malt sweetness up front in the flavor profile with gentle offsetting grassy hop bitterness creating wonderful balance. Medium body, lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a lingering sweetness in the finish. A richer, more caramelly version of the pilsner.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown body, thin off-white head upon pouring, quickly crashes, leaving minimal lacing. Rich caramel, toffee, florals, and bread in the nose. Flavor profile is more subdued and muddled. Medium to light bodied, thinness in the middle drowns out some of the flavors, soft finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a nice sweet malt aroma.
Appearance- This is a very dark brown beer with a small brownish colored head.
Taste- The flavor is a little empty to me. A great aroma and look but the flavor was a little to one-dimensional with the malt. Not bad but I was expecting more.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with mild carbonation. this beer has a slightly oily texture.
Overall- It is OK to me, i noticed many others rated it a lot higher.

12 ounce bottle. Mahogany hue with a small creamy beige head. Toasted malt nose has a metallic twinge. Sweet roasted malt upfront. Soft nutty palate. Creamy mouthfeel with a mild cocoa finish. Some dryness as well. Less bold than a Bavarian Dunkel, but still tasty.
