3.68/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a beep brown color with a huge billowy off white head. The head is very porous with huge bubbles trapped within. The head fades very slowly to give some nice lacing.

Smell – Sweeter toffee aromas are the most prevalent. These are mixed with a bit of banana and some good breadiness.

Taste – Malty through and through. A nice roasted malt flavor is present all the way through the taste experience. Up front it is a bit on the medium dry side and seems to gain sweetness as the taste experience advances; mainly toffee and brown sugar flavors come into play. Toward the end the a little bit of fruit flavors come into play and leave a nice smooth taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is a bit on the creamier side with a lower level of carbonation. This makes for a very easy drinking and very enjoyable mouthfeel giving the nice malty flavors a chance to really permeate the tongue.

Overall – Very easy drinking with a nice taste profile. I would say it would make a great beer for a lighter fish meal (balancing out the lightness with some nice thick, but not too thick, maltiness) or for session drinking with a friend on a cooler fall day.

Pours a great looking munich dunkel. A cloudy brown hue with a good amount of carbonation that gives the beer an awesome tan head that stays all the way throughout the drink.
Smell is nice. Good malt smells with a very sweet sugary smell too. A bit of clove and banana as well.
Taste is great. A well-balanced beer that has some nice tastes. A good malt background with some very sweet and spicy notes.
Mouthfeel has a medium thickness. A bit of chewiness as well.
A good balanced beer makes this one go down well. A very good balance of nice smooth malts and spices ames the a very drinkable beer.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a very dark brown, with a quarter inch off white head, some lines of lacing. Smell is fig, bread, carmel, and some hops. Taste is really well balanced, not as sweet as the nose would have you expect dark fruits and carmel start, with a surprise subtle hit of citrus hops in the finish. The body is medium, nice amount of carbonation, a touch dry, and very drinkable. Not a style I drink often, but this is very pleasant.

Such a great idea that I'm surprised more brewers have not picked up on rewarding excellent home brewers by bottling and distributing their creations. Poured into a standard pint...

A: Pours a very dark ruby brown, much like the other Longshot beer I had the other night, Derf's Secret Alt. These beers look nearly identical. Dark and slightly cloudy tobacco sunburst tones. Two fingers of light cream head sift down to a half finger. Really nice, finely beaded lacing down the sides of the glass. Very pretty beer here.

S: Hints of banana, clove, and apple. Lots of grainy notes and touches of bready malt.

T: Lots of roasted biscuit, traces of cherry and grape, some banana. Malt and grains take most of center stage here.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, but there's this slightly cloying, sweet astringency that comes out in the mid and kinda quashes the finish.

O: This is pretty good, my first experience with this particular style. Very strong malt and grain presence when compared to its cousin, the Dunkelweizen. The roasted and bready notes blend pretty well with the spice and fruit flavors I typically associate with dunkels.

By far the best Longshot this year.

Copper with a sandy tan head. Fair retention and lace.

Nutty aroma with a little earthy hop and wet stick. Some toffee as it warms.

Bread crust malt with light toffee sweetness and mild hop spice for balance. Clean and earthy.

Nice.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint.

A: Pours a translucent, dark copper color with 1/2 finger of pale tan head. Some retention and lace.

S: Sweet malt, bit of tea, some light hay.

T: Leads with sweet tea and spice, then sweetness fades in the middle and caramel malt on the finish. Dark fruits emerge as the beer warms.

M: Medium body with a healthy dose of oil.

O: Very drinkable with nice complexity. I wouldn't mind seeing this one come back again.
