3.65/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Fills a pilsner glass with a tawny brown beer that is cloudy, with ruby highlights. Carbonation is dramatic, though only a quarter inch beige head builds, then quickly fades, leaving no lacing.

Sweet malt with molasses gives way to fresh wheat bread and a mild, roasted malt scent.

The flavor roughly follows the nose, though it emphasizes the malt and bread notes. The finish is long, drawing out the roasted bitterness. Progresses from sweet to dry in each sip.

This has a fully body with woolly texture and lively carbonation. The alcohol is present, but still a minor player, as expected.

A decent beer on its own, but probably best with flavorful sausage.

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
