4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yummy! Poured into .5 l bier glass, deep brown reddish hues, with moderate carbonation. Almost no head on pour, and nothing once the beer has settled. Roast grains flavor come through on first taste, with minimal aftertaste. Not heavy at all....light in the mouth. Goes good with some good German winter food.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Germany. Translucent and reddish-amber in color with a booming, dense, and a nearly two-inch tall, fluffy tan head. Chestnuts, prunes and a smocking caramel current lead-off the aroma, pursued by milky cocoa butter, chocolate-covered hazelnuts, ginger toffee and allspice flecked on copper kettles. Rewarding flavor of caramel-dipped apples (country style), dry cocoa bricks, and butter pecan with a dry, light baker’s chocolate quality. Dark skinned, non-juicy prunes insert a pragmatic fruit note. Apple-cinnamon butter on raisin bran muffins. Mild carbonation brings me back to Bavaria, along with its medium-bodied mouth feel and a somewhat thicker viscous tract. Solid relationship of caramel, chocolate and Munich malts with a distant, supportive and regal approach to noble hopping. Caramel-chocolate-apple toffee chew cubes come out in the finish along with some cocoa prunes for added pleasure.
