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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy light brown with 2 mm of fine dusty tan head that fades at a moderate-to-quick rate. Aroma is lot’s of medium-darkness caramel with a light sap and hint of earth. Bread, raisin. Body is medium, oily, fine and light carbonation with little burn. Flavor is caramel, some grass and sap, oat cookie, light bitterness. A decent doppelbock. No complaints, maybe not up to par with the exceptional melanoidin component of the Korbinian, but a notch below with now flaws.
