Bottle from Daily Delis. Nice brown body with thin head. Nose of malts and caramel. Taste is a bit watery but a nice malty kick to it. Another great Weihenstephaner, surely.

A really malt heavy dunkel. Lots of caramel and biscuit. A bit too heavy for me, but I could see it working well in the cooler months in Europe.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 On-tap.
A - Deep copper amber color with an average to slightly below average sized head that is off-white, foamy, and a bit creamy. Decent retention with a nice lace left over.
S - A good amount of toasted grainy malts and some caramel and toffee.
T - A lot like the smell. A lot of toasted, grainy malt taste upfront make up the base. Also a good amount of caramel and toffee. Hints of some fruit, a bit of apple and some raisin. On the finish is just the slightest taste of some grassy and earthy hops along with some bread taste.
M - Somewhere between light and medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp taste and somewhat smooth.
D - Easy to drink beer that is well balanced and has a good amount of malt flavors.
Notes: Nice easy to drink beer that is a touch light on flavor and mouthfeel. Good session type of beer, and a solid beer from a very solid brewery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel with a beige head that fades to just a coat. Nose is mainly toffee with some dried berries. Taste has caramel sweetness and nuts with some roasted notes. Finish has some fruit and (I guess) roasted bitterness. Solid beer.
