3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50cl, a dark amber beer with good head but goes down too quickly. Nose is on brown bread and caramel. Aroma is on toasted malt, caramel, vegetables, brown bread, the beer is medium sweet to low with a slightly sour and smoked hints. Finish is very dry with a grassy hops note, an unusual dunkel, quite easy to drink, not heavy and well hopy, body is a bit less complex.

50cl Maruhn - Surprisingly tasty, dry, potent Dunkel with some subtle aromas to back up the balanced full roasty Vollbier taste - verges into Belgian dark ale territory, but with more bitterness and contained ABV. Nice label. One of my gateway beers to the rich Franconian beer world.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pine bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The beer poured mid brown and clear. Kind of tea colored but darker. A nice beige fluffy head was big and finally completely disappeared. An aroma that had some roasted notes with hops. The flavor surprised me a bit and I didn’t quite know how to categorize it. I tasted plenty of sweet malts. Grass and spices, too. Hops were interesting as was the yeast. There was some fruit in there and some nuts that grew with warmer temps. The aftertaste was spice and several minutes after the last sip is gone I still taste it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, labeled Monk’s Christkindl @ 7.1% ABV. Pours a slightly hazy dark copper with a 1 finger, soapy, off white head. Aroma is big on cereal, caramel, toast, crusty white bread, honey, granola and spicy, herbal hops. Flavor is full of toasty, nutty and caramel notes up front, then some toffee, hay, granola, lots of cereal, dry grass, spicy, herbal and floral hops. the finish offers an interesting honey and cooked tree fruit taste. Medium body, creamy to chewy feel, light, but blanketing carbonation and fairly neutral finish. Good stuff overall, a bit sweeter than I would like.
