11.2 oz. bottle; 02.11.?? Malty caramel aroma with a hint of hop. Ruby apricot color with a beige head. A bit thin. Moderate carbonation. The flavor is gritty caramel, with some notes of coffee. The finish is fairly dry, and the bitter is noticeable, but not heavy. Intriguing.

Würzig-hopfiger Antrunk bei ausgiebigem Malzunterton. Dieser weitet sich nur wenig aus, da der starke Hopfen intensiver wird und kaum etwas Anderes zulässt. Passend bitter, mittelstark, inspiriert durch den Hopfen. Ungemein hopfig-würziger Abgang, voll und komplex. Lange anhaltend. Speziell!13/12/13/12//12

Bottle, best until 13.02.05. Dark amber color, small head. Vinous aroma with biscuit. Hoppy, very malty flavor. This beer has a good hop character, but that is cahllanged by the malt, the wine-like character and the biscuit and butterscotch flavors. World class beer!. Thanks Dortmunder, for providing me with this gem.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Ginger Man. Pours amber with a soft, white head. Nose holds some earthy hops, along with hints of lightly toasted malts. Flavor is mildly sweet, with some caramel malts, along with some hints of fruit and earthiness. Medium in body and well carbonated. Finish is outrageously dry. An interesting - and pretty good - beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Red copper beer with almost no carbonation or head. But the aroma! Nice hops come out, which is surprising for a german brew. Taste is very complex wih a nice malty start and a lingering german hops finish, but everything is there very subtely. This is like the fine beer, very "racée" yet very fresh. Not bored at all...a big big thanks for the MaibockAddict himself .
