Nose: dark bread, rich grains, malty spice
Brilliant mahogany, 2” off-white frothy persistent head, excellent thick lace.
Palate: Big malt forward beer starts with a hint of sweetness, bread crusts, nuts, a suspicion of root beer or Dr. Pepper, no burnt, roast or bitter malt flavors, hops bitterness is in the background but subdued.
Medium full body, medium low carbonation, clean and smooth.

4.09/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Perfect pour into a Hofbrau Munchen stein. Irish setter red/grade a maple amber in color. 2 finger moussey, overflowing head. Stays around awhile, no lacing.

S: Sweet toffee and crusty brown bread malt. Straightforward.

M: Medium-light body. Firm and dry stout like. Moderately high carbonation.

T: Good and clean Munich malt taste. Complex breadiness, mostly brown bread and sweet nutty flavors-flax and millet. Mild caramel, toffee, and ginger. Moderately sweet. Just enough hops to hold it in check at the end. Light bitter, raw water chestnut finish. Carbonation introduces a restrained level of minerality. Lasting sensation of chocolate and cherries.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Dark brown beer with about a quarter inch of thick foam.
S: Rich bready aroma, slightly sweet, little hint of caramel.
T: Less sweet in the flavor, with crusty bread malt dominating. There seems to be a little roast as well. Hops aren't really detectable apart from moderate bitterness, which with the slight roast dries out the finish.
M: Somewhat light, with neutral texture.
