.5L flask on tap at Augustiner Keller in Munich.

Clear dark brown with orange and red highlights, and visible carbonation. Tan head is moderately thick and quite durable. Patchy lacing left on glass.

Aroma: simple and light aroma of medium malt with some faint floral hops.

T: Nicely malty and flavorful; very good sweet/bitter balance.

M: smooth; medium body; medium carbonation.

O: excellent example of style.

500 ml bottle just slightly past the declared BB date (06. 2012). Dark coppery-brown body with garnet tint and good clarity gets overlain by rather thin light-tan head that dissipates. Sweet aroma of caramel, chocolate, bread crust and nutty notes transfers to the flavor. The beer that lacks any inappropriate intense roasted flavors starts malty but never gets cloying and finishes dry with hop-bitterness and mild nutty aftertaste.
Creamy with sufficient carbonation teasing the palate. Very good.

T- Sweet, toasted malt balanced with bitter hops and hints of chocolate and toasted nuts.

M- medium bodied and medium carbonation.

D - Delicious beer. Worth having next time I'm in Munich.

nice dark brown, rusty brown in color with a good bit of cloudiness that seemed to settle itself out after a few minutes. A small but persistent head of off white formed on the top and managed to hang around for a good bit before settling out.

Aroma is deep and dark from the start. Rich dark caramel notes are all over this one. Roasted nuts, some brown sugar, dark frits, figs maybe? Really just complex as I even pull a touch of vanilla through after a few minutes. Really nice, and quite full feel for the style, due in most part to near perfect carbonation. This allows the flavor to roll across the palate and really just cling to every ounce of taste buds you have. Caramel, bready notes, hints of light spice are all leading the charge here as each sip seems to become better and better
