Bottle. Amber-brown body. Head is frothy, light brown. Malty aroma of caramel, toasted grain, brown sugar, bread, light smoke. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Malt forward, sweet, fruit, caramel. Really enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 mL bottle. Pours a caramel color, hazy, with an orangey off-white head. Definitely a strong dusty oxidation has set in, but there’s caramel, too. Fairly thin and oxidized, caramel, coffee, and hot cocoa flavors. Might be decent fresh, but it’s hard to tell without a readable bottling or best by date.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, yeast, and caramel. Sweetish, malty flavour, with sour-sweetish fruity and estery notes, and bitter, hoppy touches. Mild, sourish finish. OK but nothing particularly impressive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, forget where from. Wasn’t expecting this to be a dunkel! Deep brown colour. Lovely malty aroma, millionaire shortbread, toffee, Soreen malt loaf. Smooth fresh taste, nicely balancing spicy hop keeps it drinkable. Actually exceeded expectations by some distance, I could drink this by the gallon.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 My first landbier, and it most certainly won’t be my last. Much like a stout, but far less filling. Rich flavor of coffee and caramel. Goes down very smooth and quenches your thirst.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, deep amber brown with a buoyant beige head of foam that leaves a thick lace. Nose involves raisin and prune, sourdough bread, light citrus, fig and plum, a suggestion of light hop spice and some cocoa. Quite sweet and fairly bitter. Medium to full bodied, softer, silky, with a lengthy lager yeast finish. A malt forward brew, somewhat reminiscent of cinnamon raisin bread. Pretty impressive and enjoyable.

Bottle shared, poured medium to dark brown with red tints in the light. Light mocha color head. The aroma is sweet malts with caramel . Totally delicious. For the non hop lovers this has a great malty flavor followed by the caramel sensation. Very low carbonation. Great example of style.
