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.

Bottle at The Pot Still. It pours clear deep brown with a small off-white head. The aroma is rich malty action, bitter - sweet, brown bread, toasty brown sugars, treacle and fruit cake. The taste is bitter - sweet, brown bread, fruit loaf, raisin, sultana, plum, wood and sticky toffee pudding with a soft finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Hides the alcohol very well. Good balance and high drinkability.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper with medium beige head. Aroma is clove, dried figs, phenols, not alcoholic, caramel. Taste is caramel sweetness, some carbonation induced sourness. Finish contains alcohol, full body. Rather too much fine bubbles but still not aggressively carbonated. Good one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma has some sweet, toasted malt and a hint of alcohol. Taste starts with toasted malt, slightly spicy and boozy. Body is on the lighter side and has medium carbonation. I don’t really like this one. It’s quite boozy and also has a stale grain / rotten fruit flavor.

Bottle. Tawny and clear with a small head. Lovely slightly sweet flavour.So easy to drink considering its strength. An excellent example of this style that shows that in this age of wonderful craft beers Germany can still produce a good one like this. Highly recommended.

W smaku słodkie, czuć nuty owocowe, raczej klarowne i pije się dosyć przyjemnie

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 500ml bottle on 18/4/2016. Pours a dark amber with a small to medium head. The nose is rye bread, dark fruit and brown sugar. Take a sip and it’s super sweet - caramel, dates, raisins, plums, brown sugar and treacle, along with more rye bread and some light spice. There’s bugger all bitterness to be found - it could almost pass as sauce for fruit cake. The texture is thick and surupy, the carbonation quite soft. A very nice, very malty dessert like brew.
