3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into a dimple mug. A big root beer like head takes some patience and a few pours before the bottle was emptied. I smell bready malt and soggy grain. No carbonation in the mouth and the feel is watery. Cocoa flavor is not big but is prominent. Applesauce and wet grass. Fruit is almost hidden. This is kind of ho hum.

Malty with hops layered throughout. Not to much, but certainly present. Perfumed, nutty and a little bit of berry fruit poking out.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is dark brown in colour with reddish highlights. Nose is slightly earthy. Taste is immediately honeyed and malty, perfumy with a hit of almond and cherry. Malt dominates as you would expect though some bitter hops do peep though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet malts with some roasted nuts. Flavor is a little bland but there is some caramel with a roasted malt. Just not enough there to make this a good beer. So-so dunkel and maybe this is old since the last rating was in 2010.

Bottle (Dank an Jonas!): Reddish-amber coloured, slowly collapsing off-white head; dark malt, roasted malt, nuts and some dried fruits in the nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; slightly lingering - almost a bit smoky - drier roast-malty finish. Good.........
