3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown amber with a thin froth cover. Easy malt ball aroma with some light roastiness translates to a similar flavor profile with some additional toastiness. Barely medium-bodied. May have appeal to crossover macro brew drinkers with its easy-bodied and toastiness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from big lots. Poured an auburn/brown color. Not much head. Aroma was quite nice; caramel, cocoa, nuts, bread, earth and sweet malt. Flavor was solid, but not quite as layered. Soft and smooth on the palate. Sweet, caramel and nuts with a short finish. Ok overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
08-Mar-10 (330-ml bottle: Purchased 09-Feb-10 for $3.99 at Ledger’s Liquor in Berkeley, CA) This pleasant German dunkel pours a rich, clear, medium-brown body and a one inch foam cap that is dark-tan in color and shows good retention, slowly settling to a thin, but complete layer. The nose is very malty with dark bread, light earthiness, milk chocolate and some nuttiness. Fairly bready on the palate, with chocolate, lightly sweet cocoa, toast and nuts, and a hint of grassy hops in the finish. The beer is showing signs of some mild oxidation, enough to be distracting, but not enough to render the beer undrinkable. The oxidation, however, is not the beer’s fault. Light-medium in body, gentle carbonation, and some dryness in the finish. Some spotty lace on the glass. A decent beer, easy to drink and fairly straight forward.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gorgeous dark copper pour, with a small eggshell head. A great dark, slightly fruit malt nose. Upfront breads and cereals, with a slight nutiness. The mouth feel is perfect, and the carb is soft and pleasant. The finish is lightly bitter, but still quite malty with notes of caramel, more breads and sweet nutty malts. Its a dialed back doppelbock, and i love it. Super drinkable, great beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown. Mild toasty nutty flavor up front. Water palate, not a very crisp estery finish, more watery caramel flavor. Decent, but didn’t stand out.
