Tap at Weihenstephaner, Berlin. Pours clear auburn with a rich and creamy, sturdy off-white head. Light toasted malts in the nose with subtle dark fruit notes. Medium sweet flavor with berries, big raisins, some toast, herbal and leafy bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Slightly dirty bitter bite to finish, then sweet raisins, dry toast, and faint caramel. Well balanced. Very solid beer in a lovely setting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Beautiful amber with a creamy, lacing, rocky eggshell head. Nose sweet, sticky malt. Bitter, malty, semi-dry taste; toast, light roast, good malt complexity from a simple recipe, goes far without the fruit. Medium-full body, smooth. Lightly bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours darkish amber in colour with a minimal white foam with nice lacing down the glass. Hints of roasted sweetish and doughy malt on the nose. The flavour of this beer is sublime, it is very soft and deliciously malty with very little in the way of hop bitterness, it finishes both slightly sweet at first then dry out a touch. It is well attenuated and not astringent in any way..

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear almost russet dark brown with beige head. Good trails of carbonation bubbles. Smells of breadcrusts, flaked chocolate, bark and gorgeous dark malts. While the scent isn’t completely obvious, it is there and it is lovely.
A first cooling rush upon drinking and then chocolate, carbonation and a tangy bite as it rushes past the sides of the tongue. Lingering chocolate, cocoa and eclair flavours at the finish, which is subtle and then fades a short while after. I could quite happily drink more of this.
