3.48/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce single purchased today for $3.50 at Beverage Warehouse in Marina del Rey, my friend just got done telling how good this was when he was over in Munich, poured into my Aventinus weizen glass, color is a medium to dark brown, 3/4 inch creamy beige head, aroma consists of roasted malts, wheat, prunes, plums, caramel, milk chocolate, roasted malts, almonds, and some spices, flavor starts off with chocolate, various spices in the middle with a hint of clove and nutmeg carrying over into the finish, where sweet malts were prominet, roasted malts come out in the next few sips, by the end you get a hint of booze to go along with dark fruits but there is still lots of malts, sweet, slightly fruity, and malty mouthfeel, medium bodied, actually pretty thin, too much carbonation probably, taste lingers, drinks pretty well but once it warms it loses a lot of its drinkability, can get sweet and filling after a while, a twelve ounce serving was enough for me, had not heard of this brewery before, decent beer but I do not know about the six pack being over twenty dollars even considering the importing costs and other factors, besides that I would drink again, worth trying

3.86/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a Celebrator glass
A: Solid brown with a hint of red and a one-finger tan head that settles fairly quickly
S: Roasted malt, roasted nuts, just a hint of caramel and coffee beans
T: Also malty with roasted nuts, a touch of chocolate and a hint of sweetness
M: Medium-bodied, just a hint sweet though perhaps just a touch watery
O: Let that remaining sweetness ferment into something dry and this would go from pretty good to great

4.06/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

(purchased cold - poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)

A: clear, burgundy (rusty red) liquid... nice pad of spongy foam on the pour, died rather quick, however... thin collar left till the end

S: superb... lightly-spiced, stewed apple... huge, mid-dark melanoidin foundation... bit of caramelized sugar and hard cookie

T: overripe fruits up front... toasty, dark, brittle caramel... mild-moderate toast and hop bitterness lingering in the finish, also a doughy-yeasty tone late... very much malt-centric, with a tinge of milk chocolate and a Beck's-like, 'beery'-lagery aftertaste

M: fullish and a tad chewy... moderately oily-silky, with a slight, squashed, boozy flare in the end... lightly plumpy but pretty darn dry in the finish

O: could I drink a liter of this?... maybe, if this was all I was planning on eating for the majority of the day... seems like it could be filling at first, but its dry drop tempts ya
