2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma has chocolate malt with yeast and some hops. There is also a paper smell that seems to be present in so many central European beers. The appearance is brown and very clear with a decent head. The flavor is sweet with all the elements of the aroma present. The palate is light. There is a slight metallic taste in the finish but overall its not bad, just a little weak. This sort of reminds me of coco puffs.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2007 Aroma is sweet malts with very faint molasses notes that effect a molasses/brown sugar infused bread aroma. Body is a transparent mahogany amber and holds a fluffy tan head that is a full two fingers thick. Fore is crisp and slightly biting (unexpected) then sweet smooth malt flavors follow. Sweet bread, sugary syrup notes, toasty malts and mashed banana/vanilla wafers. Fairly aggressive hopping for the style leads to a mildly bitter and dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells pretty decent, a little caramel. The head is very good, but the beer only nice. Faint caramel and unexpectedly dry. Not that sweet for the style.

Clear, deep, amber. Medium, frothy, tan head. Nose of toasty malt, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and subtle, rotten banaba. Flavor of a peanut butter, jelly, and banana sandwich over toasty malt and some crisp hops near the end. Tasty. Medium/light, balanced body, easy drinking. Great dunkel.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Code L4223
Pours a mostly clear, deep mahogany with a creamy, khaki head that reduced quickly to film and wet lace. Oxidized vegetal and light vinegar aroma before roasted nuts and beef broth. Smooth but wet palate finds thin, milky chocolate malts amidst a roasted grain backdrop. Sweetness interjects, but there is a herbal bitterness to finish and linger. Not bad, but I’d hoped for something a little sweeter and fuller.

Caramel/toffee malts with some lightly roasty coffee and chocolate. Moderately robust hop bitterness noticable in the finish. Quite satisfying sessionable brew.
