3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle from trade (I can’t remember who). Pours a clear deep reddish brown with a small off white ring. The aroma had an initial sweet maltiness with touches of dark fruit, light floral and the slightest nuttiness. The flavor is dark fruits, some roasted malt, floral, dusty almost char, and lightly nutty. The finish is dry with a light bitterness.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
22 oz. bottle Translucent brown with a wispy head. Slight nuttiness, but mainly I’m smelling dark fruit -- figs, for me. Not much of an aroma, in fact, this beer isn’t pungent whatsoever. The head faded away rather quickly. The flavor is a bit dull. The beer has some nuttiness, and sweetness coming from the malts, but not much. This beer is quite boring, and texture isn’t great either. I should have possibly imbibed this at a much cooler temperature.

Aroma of chocolate and light caramel. Appearance is dark brown with tan head; not much carbonation. Flavor matches the nose, with light toasted malts becoming more apparent. Palate is creamy and smooth. A pretty mundane dunkel.

22 oz. bottle- Pours almost black with little head, aroma isn’t much, some malt. The flavor is also very malty with a bitter aftertaste, it’s mellow, drinkable and interesting but not great.

A bit malty in the aroma. Red color. Malty, a bit of roast but very slight. Pretty good beer, but only at the beginning of an evening. A tad malty as well.

Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of powdered roasted caramel malt, a hint of ice tea, some biscuits and toffee. Finish is slightly chalky, semi-dry, with a powdered caramel malt aftertaste that slowly disappears.
