3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy light brown body with a diminishing, smooth, off white head.
Aroma is malt but lacks somewhat in intensity.
The flavor is crisp with just enough malty balance to make this a decent brew. Still not at the top of the list of Dunkels however.

At last a beer that smells, looks and finally tastes like a beer should! Perhaps my quest is over and I’ve found a new favorite. This stuff was exquisite. Overall a balance of perfectly blended grains that hit the spot and made me want another just to savor again.

Bottle. Murky brown with slight red on the edges.Head starts off medium but quickly turns to just a few scattered bubbles, not pretty. Aroma is malt syrup with a mellow fruittiness. Taste is roasted malts in a sticky sweet malt juice. Is Victory slacking lately or what? If I wasn’t so thirsty, I woulda poured it where it belongs.

Peaty and sweet nose with some caramel. Deep cherry color and a sticky head. Starty with a subdued front that bursts into a sweet maple syrup finish. Low bitter. Clean palate and pretty smooth. Excellent balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice medium brown with an ok head. Not really much to look at. But it does have some redeeming qualities in the flavor, such as a slight nuttiness and a light sweetness. Has a bit of hop kick as well.
