Pours caramelly amber with a slight haze. Fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, some caramel. Good citric and flowery hoppiness as well. A hint of toffee. Medium carbonation, good and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely balanced, lots of sweet maltiness, toasted, caramel, grassy. Long, lingering aftertaste with good toasted caramel and a good deal of bitterness. Really nice and very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL bottle, side-by-side with Doppel Sticke, pours a very murky dark brownish orange with a small ring of off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, wet bread, lager yeast, toasted nuts and some dark fruits. Flavour is quite nutty, woody and a bit herbally - wet bread, toasted nuts, some slight caramel notes, some dry fruit and some slight floral notes. Finishes dry, semi-bitter, bready and nutty - medium astringency lingers. Quite good, though I don’t understand the hype on this one.
