bottle - tasted without knowing what it was. We all pretty much guessed a Dunkel. Red gold pour, off-white head that dissipated quickly. Very clovey flavor, maybe also grains of paradise.

Aroma is a touch of cooked vegetable, lots of wheat, pepper, clove, and cinnamon.
Taste is wheat, pepper, clove, cinnamon, rounding out well, creamy, dense.
This is pretty tasty.
Finishes smooth and a touch fizzy, but not so much that it is distracting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle via Jimbowood. This one pours a murky, brown/amber color. Light carbonation. Nose is bananas and spice. Flavor is spicy, fruity and smooth. Lots of banana and clove going on. Kind of reminds me of an abbey dubbel. Surprised by the relatively low ABV, because this one feels strong. Still, very good.
