4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2006 Bottle, May 2006.
Translucent and deep amber bronze in color with a creamy, whipped tan and booming frothy head. Pecan casings and copper kettles begin the aromatic tune, along with semi-sweet chocolate powder, rich toffee, and caramel & brown sugar dancing with milk chocolate fudge swirls. Chocolate roll flavor comes out from the get-go. This is a cocoa grain sack run amuck in a Bavarian bakery. Copper empowerment, along with chocolate toffee chews, brown-sugared oats and chocolate rye buns. Gentle, medium-bodied and quite an easy and exit strategy with the palate. The creamy head retention makes the mouth feel more blessed. Unsalted soft pretzels dabbed in mild milk chocolate powder comes through in the finish. Lovely.
Tap, Germany, April 2006.
Translucent and medium reddish-brown in color with a well retained tan head and vellum lacing. Chocolate brownies, cherry cordials, dark chocolate toffees and brown sugared dates provide an alluring aroma. Tasty milk chocolate and brandy sauce poured over dark fruited figs start the flavor. Chocolate pound cake and buttery toffee nodes with discreet amaretto and hazelnut accents provide more dimension and complexity. Medium-bodied with substantial palate locomotion, helping to perfectly aid the adequate carbonation. Liquid brown sugar, golden raisins and chocolate cake mix give us a heartfelt and endearing finish. Classic, milky, chocolatey splendor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 4.7% ABV. Clear amber/copper with moderate fine tan head. Roasty sweet aroma with a bit of spicey hops and some raisin. Medium body with low carbonation. Light roasted malt flavors with some bready toast character and a bit of raisin. Finish is moderately dry with some coffee and spicey hop bitterness. I think this is quite a nice dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I cant read the effing commercial description, but I’ll tell you what i think it says. 330 mil bottle from Bevmo. $2.29 eh! Rich red-brown with off white head. Nose is sweet like a cola and medium fruit. A bit of vanilla and light spice. Clove? Big smooth taste fills the mouth. Sweet brown ale feel turns to lager dryness. Leftovers combination of aspirin and sweet dark fruit. Nice beer.
