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.

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.

Bottle (thanks to MoritzF): Dark amber coloured, beige, stable head; sweetish malty nose, distinctive traces of molasses, faint traces of coffee and caramel, mild bitterness; sweetish malty start, becoming dry towards the end; sweetish flavour; short, a bit tart and mild bitter finish with a metallic tinge; lacks a bit a fuller body and could be better rounded................

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (Batch L4145) and served in my little used Nut Brown Ale glsss:
Pours more of a dark cola hue with a nice sized creamy off-white head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of nutty and chocolate malt sweetness, dusty yeast esters, hint of floral hops, tobacco, and a touch of smoke. The taste is quite nice for a dunkel, not has caramel sweet as other I have had, more of a cleaner roasted malt flavor with some good bitter balance. A constant bittersweet chocolate and mild acidic fruit theme runs throughout adding nice depth of palate. The mouthfeel has soft carbonation and quite smooth, never cloying. A surprising good bier and glad to have tried it and may again.
