3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1 Pt. 0.9 Fl. Oz. Flip top Bottle. Poured clear dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is very malty combined with some fruits and grains. Taste starts quite sweet, from malts and fruits some yeast (bread flavor) to it too towards the end you’ll feel some smokiness and bitterness. Leaves you a dry aftertaste. Nice and drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle poured into lager glass. Clear deep caramel color with a significant light tan head and minimal lacing. Faint malty aroma. Slightly sweet malty flavor with some nuttiness. It’s plenty smooth, but overall I find this to be pretty dull.

Bottle 0,50L. Clear, dark amber colour with average big, creamy, beige head. Aroma is mostly on the malt side - roasted malts, caramel, white coffee, chocolate. Taste starts light sweet with caramel flavor and it ends moderate bitter with some chocolate. Medium to full body, texture somewhere between watery and oily with lively carbonation. I was positively suprised!

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.
