2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Supermarket Liquors in Fort Collins, CO. Pours dark amber with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Smells like roast malt, but kind of like schwarzbier - but sweetish. Medium minus body with foamy carbonation. It’s sweet malt, lightly roasted, and not much like a schwarzbier. Maybe a bit like bock. ???? I give up. Ok drink, but not one I’d repeat deliberately.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Poured with an airy pile of white foam on top, reddish/brown underneath. The aroma is full-on sugary maltiness. This drinks with the same big sweet toffee character, as if this was 100% malt. (#4056, 1/2/2011)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky..., dark brown with a small beige head.
Caramel, toasted bread, chocolate scent.
Taste is sweet, but a little bready.....caramel/chocolate malts.
Surprisingly rich.....a bit stale.....I’d guess I’d up my score with a more fresh sample....not too bad, really.

Bottle: Dark pellucid brown color with a nice white head. The nose is toasty with nuts and dark malts, crisp and roasty with a light chewy almond quality. Clean and fresh with a light roasty underlayer and a mild body with a refreshing finish. Nice dark lager (vienna?) with a sweet toasty finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with a big foamy head. Flavor is dark malt, with a little spice. Medium body. Not bad save for the slightly metallic finish, but what do you expect from 75 year old steel tanks recycled from the United States deep into mexico.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice malty aroma and pleasant appearance, but it falls flat after that. taste is watery and bland, very abrupt finish, slightly metallic. Just malt taste, that’s it, was hoping for better.
