3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into the glass it shows a red-amber colour and a creme coloured head. Aromas of grain, roasted malt and, in my opinion, more resiny than grasy hops. Flavours of caramel, roasted malt and some minerals. A fine bitter finish with a bit of smoked ham, not very intense. Body is okay, could be a bit heavier. straight forward and down-home beer with a clear focus on the malt. i like it.

Dark brown colour with tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, little hops and some caramel notes. Similar are flavours. Medium body, low carbonation and bitterness. Drinkable but still not superlative.

mahogany colour, moderate sized creamy beige-ish head, which disappears surprisingly quickly; aroma of rye bread, roasted nuts; slight cocoa notes, minimal grassy hops and some fruitiness; taste is the same; correct dunkel, but nothing extra

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper color, with little to no head. Aroma of sweet malts, slight dark fruits, and bread. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malt up front, toast, and dark fruits...somewhat dry, and warm to the tummy. Finish lingers on the tongue for some time. Overall, not bad, but would not seek out again....due to the cost.
