herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Pours a deep dark roasted chestnut brown with a decent tan head.Very malty nose reminiscent of dark bread(squaw maybe). Full bodied with a creamy palate. Very malty sweet flavor with very little bitterness evening things out. Good but not an Andechs or Celebrator.

Sweet, malty aroma. Fairly dark in color, fair amount of carbonation. Carmel in the taste in addition to malts. A tasty treat.

Fresh malty nose. Dark brown with a rocky head. Malt based finished of with hops. Somewhat ighter than others of the same style. Thinish mouthfeel an a rather quick fading taste experience.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2006 Very small and fast to go head but a great dark, almost black, color. A slight bitterness in the aftertaste but overall a great taste left in your mouth. The only downside is the thin body.

Poured a beautiful brown color with a medium sized and somewhat rocky tan head. Aroma of dark bread, citrus and ripe blackberries. Wonderful roasted malt flavors, some fruitiness and lightly hopped. Full bodied mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Lingering malt finish of bran muffin and honey. I look forward to trying this one fresh when I go to Germany later this month!

A pretty dark amber beer. Aroma is malty and maybe a LITTLE fruity. Not over carbonated, very warm, somewhat alchoholic taste. Very spicy and roasty flavored. I would like to taste a little more hops.But it has "lots of taste!" ;)

Poured out of bottle, bought at Sam's Wine & Spirits Chicago 6/3/03. Pours to a medium loose head of mixed large and small bubbles, lingering to a thin whisp. Slightly fruity nose (apples?), moderately strong. Dark auburn color with a clear body, not much carbonation, but dark and sexy. Initial taste is full and warm, again of fruit (extra-hard cider?) as well as some caramel, roasted malts, and a little bit of spice. Medium body with silky, creamy smooth texture. A little bit of a pleasant metallic buzz and an undertaste of alcohol with a moderately long finish. Very nice stuff.
