"Batch 1...ale contains wheat, munich, carafe II, blackprinz and pale ale malts..."

Pours nearly black into Relic pint glass. 2 inch beige head.

Aroma is full of the characteristic banana, clove and bubble gum notes, as well as some nuttiness, and a mild roastiness too. Nice.

Taste is full, well rounded with more of the same flavors as in the nose. No chalkiness. Nice and smooth on the tongue too. Mouthfeel is very nice.

Overall, a nice rendition of this classic German-style dark, malty and roasty beer.

A dark brown black color, a bit murky looking with a fair short lived off-white head and modest to negligible lacing. The aroma offers a medley off licorice root beer chocolate malt. Wow, quite a heavy hit with an interesting floral perfume and tart grass bite. Really interesting. The taste gives you a more mellow malt mash with the tart apple edge and floral/lavender complements. There's a kind of skunky malt going on which just makes this more intriguing. This stuff is medium-plus bodied with a somewhat chalky feel. It drinks smoothly but is short of being a sessionable choice. This is pretty much hands down the best, most unique dunkel I've ever had the pleasure of trying. I'm not a dunkel expert but in my book this one rocks!
