Pour is dark brown with red edges and a fizzy tan head. Nose is mostly molasses and notes of coffee bean and roast. Taste is more sticky molasses and strong roasted malt notes. Some cooked brown sugar through a finish that thins a bit. Medium body with assertive carbonation thinning in the finish.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Poured from a bottle to a cylinder glass. Had a medium brown color and a slightly cloudy consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: An OK aroma of malt and a sugary component, but not much else. A little subdued.

T: Tasted of malt and molasses, but the advertised honey didn't really shine through. A lot of German-style beers don't always seem to have a great deal of complexity (a very broad statement), and this one seems to be no exception. Kind of bland.

M: A lot of carbonation with a sharp, crisp, and dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Not necessarily a bad beer, but definitely a forgettable one. Still, somewhat drinkable.

KHad in a bottle poured into a Troegs Chalice.
A-Dark brown. Little head that dissipates quickly.
S- brown sugar, bread, hint of chocolate
T-very bland, hint of brown sugar, black berry, and banna.
MF- tingly like bottles soda on the roof of your mouth
Overall, it was okay. Wasn't impressed. It taste like it's going to be amazing in the beginning and then just falls off into blandness.
