3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft Sample at Bavarian Lodge. Very… "different" nose. Toasted rye seeds, a bit of rauchmalz, but not bacony like some smoke beers. Deep brown color, fine bubbles in the head. Yeah, toasted grain in the taste. Rye spice and a slight tartness that comes with roggens or weizens. An herbal "digestiv" note remains on the tongue. Very unusual, but quite enjoyable.

Bottle. No idea of how old this was as there was no date code. Anyhow:
Dark brown with a dense beige head.
Aroma is sweet with canned fruit, spices and chocolate.
Taste is sweet caramely, metallic, peppery (rye I guess) and with some chocolate.
Medium body, high carbonation, round mouth feel.
Metallic bitter after taste.
