3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Fette Sau-served in a 16oz Jam Jar: Muddy brown pour with a thick and dense tan head. Fresh aroma. Bready, with hearty grains and underlying fruity hop notes. Nice creamy body. Chewy flavors of dark bread, mild cocoa with a hint of sharpness and roast followed by a nice dry finish making it very drinkable. Easily drank, and satisfying as a meal.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quart mason jar at Fette Sau. Pours a deep dark borwn- almost a sharcoal black, and a thin lasting head. Aroma is nutty and chocolatey with hints of roast and light toasted malts an dsome diminished fruity esters. More chocoalte and nuts in the flaovr light roast, some charred malts, yet surprisingly clean- almost like a schwartzbier- some nice doughy wehat malts and a good clean crisp bitterness in the end. This went relaly well with the food there. I expected this to be a dunkelweizen, but it wasnt anything close. I dont know what it was, but it was really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Fette Sau. Poured a clear dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma was mildly roasted with a wheaty citrus. Light chocolate. The flavor ran along the same lines as the aroma just stronger with more chocolate and roast. Some bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Fette Sau. Very cloudy dark brown beer with a thin head. Aroma is soft and quite nutty. A kiss of dry cocoa, soft earthy character. A bit of light piny hoppiness on the nose, but it’s well-integrated with the malt. A hint of tartness through the middle along with the cocoa. This drinks like their 8 Days O’Wheat with a heavy shot of chocolate malt. Lingering hoppy/piny finish. I like it, but it’s kind of strange.
