3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at Dash In - Pours dark amber with a light tan head. It has a rich caramel malt aroma with a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is similar with the caramel in the forefront and the dark fruit accents. It’s very sweet and almost syrupy. I know the style is sweet but even for that this one seemed sweeter than most. Pretty good anyway.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured this beer from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a muddy brown and dirty color with noticeable sediment, a dark amber hue, and a foamy off-white head with average retention and cling, and good lacing. It had a rich earthy malt aroma with touches of banana and light dark fruits, along with some yeast and grain. It had a bitter-sour flavor with a light grainy-earthy blend and some touches of caramel malt and very light yeast and fruit. The beer was very light and creamy with a wet body, low carbonation, and a lighter, thinner mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(50 cl bottle) chestnut-coloured, hazy, with a beige head. Aroma is heavily malty, loads of dark bread, dried fruits/raisins, sherry, roasted. Taste is sweet. Chewy and sticky. Slightly burning finish. Not something I would want to drink often or in large quantities, but well-made.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dunkelbraun mit relativ wenig Schaum. In der Nase vorwiegend malzig. Der Antrunk ist durch den Alkohol leicht bissig-würzig. Geschmacklich ausschließlich malzig und leider auch nicht komplex geraten. Gegen Ende kommt etwas Würze auf. Zum lecker Braten durchaus trinkbar; für sich allein eher ein dumpfer Bock ohne echten Tiefgang.

Aroma of musty grains, nuts and whatnot. Murky brownish tan. Heavy toffee and coffee malt tastes collide to start, bitter at the back end. Sticky and sludgy like syrup. Extra malty doppel with decent chops.
