look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured 500ml bottle into a pils glass with freshness date and other details on back label.

The pour produces deep brown color with hint of ruddy hue in the texture, big tan frothy head rise up fast and well retain thereafter left with plenty of beauteous lacing that stickily withstand against the time. Highly active carbonation effervesces towards the top sip by sip.

Build up by malt sweet with toasted bread character and fruity notes which are raisin and prune. Also wrap up with hint of coffee and creamy chocolate. All in all, this beer has very aromatic and inviting smell.

Full touch of malt sweet, somewhat creamy and caramel which balance by bitterness from hop and toasted trait also with fruity tang that is raisin and prune, a bit spice alcoholic also hidden inside.

The mouthfeel is smooth with right amount of carbonation that well suit to generate velvety touch through the palate, medium body, full flavor.

One word to define this beer is excellent, very good drinkable and solid brew from the eldest Weihenstephan.
