Bottled 2/13

Pours a super-effervescent brown/chestnut with 3 fingers+ of tan head. Faint traces of lacing & head retention

S: Nuttty. brown bread & a faint whiff of sourness

T: Figs, brown bread & a bit of pear & walnut up front. Dryness, faint hints of sourness, tartness & a bit of choke cherry, plus pear & apricot & more brown bread as this warms. Finishes fruity, with figgy sweetness & a touch of brown bread & dryness & some walnut

MF: Medium bodied with lively carbonation

Seems a bit off for the style, drinkable enough, but flawed. I will have to keep an eye on freshness dates with this brewery from here on, this 6 month old beer has not held up me thinks... I liked Piney River's take on this better by quite a bit

Thanks to DrAwkward82 for sharing this one at AndrewK’s tasting.

Pours a murky dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip down into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, and toffee. Taste is the same with some mild nutty flavors and a slight tartness. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a better smell than taste in my opinion. The walnuts used in this one are pretty subtle too.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a deep, vibrant, amber-nut brown coloring with a tall, frothy, dense, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of rich sweetness, roasted nut highlights, toffee, and earthy notes. Flavors of roast and tangy sweet forward, with toffee notes, roasted nutty highlights, cream highlights, and some chocolate notes. Pretty layered on the palate. Lighter bodied, but smooth, providing a crisp finish to a beer that is almost velvety and light in mouth. The aftertaste is more of the tangy sweet, with caramel and toffee blending together. Very flavorful and tasty beer.

Thanks to drewba for the nice extra!

Pours deep brown with a small tuft of beige head that clings a bit to the side of the glass.

Big nutty aroma along with a lot of malty sweetness and some banana.

Flavor is a tad disappointing after the aroma. Typical dunkel flavors here. Some chocolate malt, wheat and banana. Maybe a bit of nuttiness, but probably wouldn't pick out that flavor if I tasted this blind.

Medium to light bodied with ample carbonation.

A well done dunkelweizen although I wish the flavor were nuttier. Not a style I have often so it was nice for a change up even if it isn't anything innovative.

Picked this up because it was on clearance at Riverside Liquors in Frederick. I figured it was interesting enough to be worth a try. Good looking beer but had a weird fizz when poured, almost like a soda instead of a beer. Fizzy head also dissipated quickly, had me a little worried. But the smell was excellent, very interesting, The taste was also interesting, and very good, but not awesome. But feels a little light, and again, kinda fizzy. Overall while not a bad beer by any stretch, being interesting is the best thing it has going for it. While I enjoyed it I will not be swinging back by to grab any more of these despite the good price.

A - Pours a dark red mahogany body with a fizzy khaki head.

S - Roasted malts, slight sweetness and I'm picking up some walnuts as well.

T - Dark fruits, walnuts, earthiness, vanilla, molasses and the ending has a tartness to it.

M - Light bodied, not a thick beer, medium carbonation. Has somewhat wet/dry finish.

O - Nice seasonal... Should have came out when the leaves are falling on the trees.
