2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the bottle this pours brown with a soft beige head. Very watery on the palate, to soft to bring a lot of flavors through. Earthy toward the finish. The roastiness was there, but not very strong, lacked a nice smoothness that I like in dunkles. Overall I just thought this was to watery, bland flavors.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pretty reddish brown color with a small head.
The aroma is pretty sweet, with lots of caramel, toasted marshmallow, and some mild roastiness.
The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma lets on, although it’s a moderately sweet beer… flavors of cola, some mild bitterness, light earthy hops, & nuttiness. Some nice flavors here for sure, s’a pity that cola seems to be the dominant one….
The palate is bubbly but really pretty thin.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark reddish/mahogany, beige head, somewhat dense, fades, returns with a swirl. Spotty lacing. Really dig aroma. Doughy dark bread, big malty decoction remnants, much like caramelized sugar/brittle. Light burnt/roasted character. Flavor on par, bready, melanoidins, caramel brittle. Really clean. Soft billowy mouthfeel. Very easy drink. Well done. Looks like I am in the minority on this one, but pretty solid IMO.
